Viewpoint Student Program

The Viewpoint Student Program was created to provide students with an educational resource that gives them valuable industry information, feedback, and support in a semi-professional environment.  Viewpoint is offering a program to help high school and college students grow and build their art, meet other students in their chosen field of study who share their interests, and join a thriving organization dedicated to the photographic arts.

For students interested in becoming a Member of Viewpoint, the annual fee is only $20 and entitles members to attend all monthly Print and Portfolio nights; to submit their work for possible exhibition in the annual Members Show, field trips organized for members and discounted fees for various workshops and travel trips, and invitations to the Member Receptions at each new monthly exhibit.

About the Student Lectures:  Student lectures are intended to supplement a student's school experience by offering talks and demonstrations on areas of photographic interest, topics and techniques.  Lectures and demonstrations are given by people experienced in their field.  Viewpoint strives to make these lectures relevant to areas of study.  Suggestions for speakers are always welcome.
