The Grand Cayman program gives students a chance to gain valuable, hands-on experience in fashion photography and videography. Students, who work with an Ohio University alum who works on the Island as a professional photographer, participate in scouting locations, networking with local professionals, preparing for photo and video shoots, creating still images and video, and working through the post-production process.
