About the Photography: Photo Equipment Cage
CCA's Photography studios and checkout center have been designed and equipped to enable students to realize any photographic project they wish to pursue.
In addition to the college's top-of-the-line digital facilities, the Photography Program maintains a large analog black-and-white printing and film-developing facility, including a dedicated large-format mural darkroom.
Equally important is the Photography checkout center (AKA "The Cage"), which provides students overnight access to all of the equipment they need to complete their assignments.
