Our History

The Washington School of Photography was founded in 1976, to bring professional photographic education to the Washington, DC/Baltimore metro area.  Starting in just two rooms, the workshops and classes quickly grew.  In the 1980s, the Professional Photography Program was approved by the Maryland Higher Education Commission.
