In the News: Geneva photography program in Swiss Style magazine

| May 14, 2015

Webster University’s photography program is featured in Swiss Style with an article by Joy Corthesy, a senior Media Communications major at Webster’s Geneva campus.

Coursework is based largely on building a portfolio as students work with both traditional and digital means of production. With a dark room for classic printing methods and a media lab equipped with large iMacs and editing software, Arese Visconti has students experience both old and new methods.

“It’s important for students to first understand the foundations of photography before moving to creative work. It teaches you to be patient, to understand what quality means; quality needs time,” says Arese Visconti.
