Facilities

Woods Studio Building

The Photography Program's facilities are housed in the Woods Studio building, and include an exhibition gallery, a classroom outfitted with an HD projector, a 900-square-foot shooting studio, advanced digital imaging facilities, and both color and black and white darkrooms. Woods Studio is wheelchair accessible.

Darkrooms

They include two black-and-white group darkrooms and one color color group darkroom with a Colenta processor for up to 20 x 24 prints; seven private darkrooms for seniors, equipped with color and black-and-white enlargers for negatives up to 8 x 10, and a mural printing room. The group darkrooms are open for student use during monitored hours. Seniors have twenty-four access to the facilities.

Digital Imaging Labs

The Photography Department manages two Digital Imaging facilities. The Senior Digital Labs, located in the Woods Photography building, and the Junior Digital Imaging Lab, located in basement of Brook House.

The Senior Digital Imaging Labs are restricted to those photography students working on their Senior thesis projects. These labs consist of three main working spaces which are equipped with a total of four printers: Two Epson Stylus 7900 printers, and two Epson Stylus 9900 printers, and a Creo iQsmart 3 Scanner, a top of the line high resolution flatbed scanner.

The Junior Digital Imaging Lab (Brook House) is open to only those students enrolled in a Digital Imaging photography class. This lab is open to these students during monitored hours. The Brook House lab is outfitted with an Epson Stylus 7900 for large format printing. The main workspace has seven Epson R2880 professional desktop printers and three scanning stations running Silverfast Ai software for Epson Perfection V700/750 series scanners.

Drum Scanning Service

The Bard Drum Scanning Service is available to all students currently enrolled in a Bard photography class.

Exhibition Space

A 5,000-square-foot addition contains an exhibition gallery and a 900-square-foot lighting studio which doubles as an exhibition space in the spring semester, when seniors present their thesis projects in the form of formal exhibitions.

Cameras/Equipment

Because of the importance we place on experimentation with different camera formats, the Photography Program has a collection of more than fifty cameras including medium and large-format film cameras and a selection of digital SLRs.

Bard Library Resources

The Bard Library contains a major collection of over 5,000 books on photography, including many rare items.
