Photography is an important skill to learn while at CDes; therefore the staff provides assistance with learning rather than doing photography work for students.
The lab's staff is available for consultation about photographic problems and will provide advice and equipment where needed to help CDes students photograph their own work.
In addition to work with students, the lab's staff originates photography of student projects for the school's records.
