Our Photography Residency is a self-directed, non-instructional program. Participants work independently in our space. We welcome photographers with varying experience levels who are interested in utilizing a safe creative space to practice, experiment, and work on that special project/collection or to simply use for select studio gigs and clients. Our aim is to aid you in taking your work to another level.

Residency Duration

Term of 12 weeks/3 months (minimum). Dates are not predetermined but are nominated by the applicant.
