Photography graduates leave FIT with a portfolio of professional-caliber work that provides a competitive advantage in the fields of communications, advertising, fashion, fine arts, and publishing.
Graduates often begin their careers as freelance commercial photographers, photo studio assistants, digital techs, and multimedia artists. Some work as assistants to photo editors in publishing, or in the art and design departments of advertising agencies and department stores. Others work for photographers, business agents, and gallery curators.
Capturing History in the Moment
2020 was like no other year in recent history—a raging pandemic coupled with the killing of George Floyd, which brought racism to the forefront—and our alumni, faculty, and student photographers rose to the occasion and documented emotional moments that stirred many of us deeply. Artists like Maiya Imani Wright, Photography ’21, witnessed history unfolding in front of her and captured a protester who embodied anguish, defiance, bravery, and unity in a single photo.
