An Innovative Program Seeks Visual Storytellers on the Environment
Those with a passion for both photography and environmental studies should put the Environmental Visual Communication (EVC) program at Toronto’s Fleming College on their radar. Led by conservation photographer and educator Neil Osborne, EVC has introduced a visual communication curriculum to universities across North America and assembled an impressive roster of associated industry professionals who provide an outstanding educational experience for Fleming students.
According to a recent story on PDN Pulse, Osborne saw an opportunity to match students with nonprofit organizations that need photography, video and other visual communications assets. Over the past three years EVC has developed a “placement partner” system, which gives students real-world experience (and, in some cases, payment) while putting their talents to use for good causes. For more on this unique program and the valuable field placements it affords students, read the full story here.
