Jessica Eckermann teaches this course and says

“Camera Portfolio 2 continues to develop knowledge needed for the photographic industry but also the skills needed as an artist. Students are encouraged to photograph in an area of their choice which gives a great deal of flexibility and self-directed learning. I love seeing the variety of work from the class at the end of the term!”
