  1. Hi all so I'm a first year photography grad and so far, putting it lightly, things have been a dumpster fire. Long story short, the head of the area (who is the only dedicated faculty atm for the dept) has been "retired" and the school has dumped everything on the visiting professor starting mid semester in the Fall. Due to all of this myself and the other grads haven't had much guidance; we've been kind of orphaned in a way. My whole experience so far has been really awful, and I need some advice or feedback on my work. I went to a conference recently and had my portfolio reviewed; the general consensus is that I need some kind of research element to attach with my imagery. I am struggling to figure this out, I don't even know where to begin honestly. My subject matter is oriented around insects and small plant life, making work has been extra trifling this semester because I'm in Iowa and everything is hiding (I'm from the South so this hasn't been an issue in the past). Here is a link to my website for anyone interested in seeing my work. https://n3aphotography.weebly.com/
  2. Congratulation to all of you who have been accepted into your MFA program. My MFA journey will continue in Florence Italy. What are the things you are doing now to prepare you for the next 2-3 years? How do you go about your thesis research?
  3. Hi all, I'm receiving my BFA in creative photography next spring. My GPA isn't amazing (in my art class grades it's a 3.5) but otherwise I've had personal issues that have made school hard. I eventually want to go to grad school and hopefully post-bac up in NYC when I move next fall. Are grades the most important thing when trying to get into a grad school for art, or portfolio? What if your work is what they want but your grades are meh? I need help, thanks
  4. Hi guys, Got 80% tuition-covered scholarship from SAIC and had already decided to go there.. but this morning, CalArts offered a full prize scholarship. I feel like in a struggle to choose any one.. Any suggestions on their photo programs? Many thanks!

    MFA in Germany

    Has anyone researched German University MFA programs? I have been on many of their website but can't find information on how to apply for their MFA programs.
  7. What MFA program would you think is best for someone studying photography and video? I would love to know. Thanks!
  8. I am looking into 2018 MFA programs here in the US and Europe. I keep reading that Germany does not have the same art programs as the US. Is anyone aware of a German MFA in painting or inter discipline studio studies? I have a dual citizen ship which would allow me to study here in the US or in Europe. Thanks Iris
  9. Hello everyone I'm interested in studying photography (including issues of class, power and the documentary genre). I was accepted to the IFA's MA program, and the UT Austin PhD American Studies program (which would have a strong photography angle). I am wait-listed at U Michigan-Ann Arbor's PhD art history program. I ultimately want to get a PhD, then teach and curate photography. IFA is tremendously respected, and would open a lot of doors (maybe more in curating than academia), but would cost $70,000. UT Austin is of course free. But do you think it 1.) is respected / opens doors and 2.) might allow me to keep a foot in both academic and curating worlds? I would appreciate any insight you might have. Thank you!
  10. Hello Everyone, Not sure if this will get out there to anyone, but I am posting in hopes to gain some information or advice for the Yale School of Art MFA Photography department interview. I have an interview for their Photography Graduate program next week and I am just looking for any helpful suggestions or advice anyone is willing to give, as this is my first grad school interview and I am not quite sure what to expect or how the dynamic of the interview is orchestrated. If anyone can help or can recommend someone to talk to, I will be forever grateful. Thank you guys!
  11. Hey all, I have some questions in regards to submitting photos for an MFA in photography. In the applications, there is often a place to include dimensions and material for each image in the portfolio. In situations where one is submitting a photograph of another piece of art, this makes total sense. (example: sculpture is 20ft x 17ft, etc, etc, etc.) However, when it comes to photography, the expectation is less clear. As some of my photos are actually scanned prints from a dark room, I can give specifics in size printed, paper type, and film used. But, some of my photos are digital and have therefore not been previously printed. My questions are, for Photography Submissions: Do I list materials and dimensions for digital work? How about printed work? What details should I go into/what details should I skip? Any help would be greatly appreciated! Ben
  12. Hello everyone I'm interested in a masters in art history with a focus on postwar American and European documentary photography. Ultimately I'd like to do museum curation. I'd like to stay in a medium-to-large US city. Ideally the school would provide funding. Could you please let me know which schools I should add to or remove from this list? NYU - IFA Bryn Mawr CUNY City College of NY University of Maryland-College Park UC Riverside Tufts University Boston University U of Arizona (Tucson) U of New Mexico SUNY Stony Brook Thanks very much!
  13. Greetings all. Any though's on SVA's Photo, Video and Related Media program versus the School of the Art Institute of Chicago photo program, or just the two schools in general? What about Pratt's Digital Imaging MFA? I think Chicago is great and would like to move there, but NYC seems to be the place for anything photo related--but don't want to fool myself. I'm more of a fine art shooter than commercial but I know there's crossover. Anyone pick a school and then regret it and drop out to try again the following year? Thanks

  15. Hey, everyone. Thanks for clicking into this thread. I have just got accepted by San Francisco Art Institute Photography MFA this year. It is a good news to hear but I am still not 100% free from the anxiety. I know this school has a rather long history and many famous alumni and alumnus, especially in photography field, like Annie Leibovitz. But it not accurate to measure the quality of school only by some individuals achievements. So I really want to get some first hand information about how do you think about the education they offer (like faculty, campus and facilities) there and experience about living in SF (I heard its a really expensive city to dwell) and how do you career go after the graduation as a photographer (or artist) Since I am an international student so it will be great if there are other international students who attended SFAI can answer my questions. I am really grateful to everyone who read my post and please give me all the information you have about this school. I really appreciate your generous help.
  16. Hi all, I'm sure a lot of us have completed our applications and now don't know what to do with ourselves. 6 to 8 weeks feels like an eternity to wait to hear back on anything. I figured we could wait it out together. What was everyone's app process like? School visits, emails to current students, etc.? I applied to only three schools - Yale, Columbia College and UGA. I visited the last two and really wish I had visited Yale. Does anyone have any experience at or visiting Yale? Wishing you all the best possible luck!!! Any feedback from veteran applicants or current grad students appreciated!
  17. I am pretty new to this forum, so forgive me if this question has been asked repeatedly. I am in the process of researching mfa programs for photography (starting Fall 2012). Does anyone have any advice as to what programs are good "fall backs". I am currently thinking about applying to 4 top tier schools, and 2 fall back schools. The 4 I know I want to apply to are Yale, SAIC, RISD, and CalArts. Also, any advice about interviews? (assuming I make the cut! haha)
