ACP Unit 1 Project:

Studio Tour and Interview

Project Description


You and a partner will select a local commercial studio to visit and review. The studio should have a physical location (not a home), and be available for an interview. No franchises (such as Kiddie Kandids or Camera Shy) but must be a local professional photographer, either for commercial or portraiture.

Here are the assignments as it currently stands:

Other options:

The Interview

You will also need to interview the photographer at the studio. There are some standard questions you should ask, but you should think of specific ones for your particular studio/photographer. See the attached questions.


With permission, please take several photos of the studio for your presentation so others can get an idea of the studio you are presenting. Include an exterior shot of the studio and any other grounds, spaces that they may use. Also, it would be good to photograph their equipment setup.

The Presentation

Prepare a 5-10 minute presentation about your studio using Google Presentation on your school Google account based on your questions/interview. When finished, and before the due date, share your presentation with Mr. Trapane on Google Drive.
