NWC Photographic Communications offers travel opportunity to Portugal

Posted by: NWC News Desk — October 23, 2017

Community members are invited to join the Northwest College Photographic Communications Photo Field Studies course for an excursion to Portugal March 3-11, 2018.

For the past 15 years, the NWC Photographic Communications program has led field study tours to destinations throughout the world. These locations include Paris, Cuba, China, Vietnam, Argentina, Uruguay, Morocco and Costa Rica.

This year’s trip will be led by Dr. Christine Garceau, associate professor of photography at Northwest.

“These photographic tours provide valuable opportunities for students and community members to experience the intricacies of travel photography within the structure of a multicultural setting,” noted Garceau.

The cost to attend is $3,200, plus tuition for the course PHTO-2960-90. The trip includes transportation from Powell to the Billings airport, local transport from Lisbon, Portugal, to a local hotel in Cascais, as well as ground tours to Sintra, Obidos, Alcobaca, Batalha, Aveiro, Porto and Coimbra. The fee also includes two meals per day and admission to designated museums and other sites of interest.

For those wishing to attend the trip, an informational presentation will be held Thursday, Nov. 16, at 6:30 p.m. in the Fagerberg Building, room 70. Registration ends Nov. 30.

Additionally, those interested in being part of the Portugal Photo Exhibit—held in Northwest’s SinClair Gallery during summer 2018—are encouraged to register for the two-credit section of PHTO 2690-90. All other individuals may register for the one-credit section of the course. The two-credit section includes printing, matting and framing for the exhibit. A reception will be held in the gallery at the beginning of May.
