There is still room in the Loyalist Photojournalism Program!


There is still lots of room in the PhotoJ tent at Loyalist! If you have been thinking it is too late, it is not! This is a great place to learn the language of photography and the individual approach to the art and craft of storytelling. But best of all, you will learn a lot about yourself and how you relate to the world around you.

We are still the best kept secret in visual education in Canada, and would love to have you learn with us and become part of the Loyalist Photojournalism family that has been growing for 30 years now. Our “triple threat skill set” of photography, writing and multimedia production is the skill set of the modern visual communicator, and transferable to a wide variety of applications. Contact us at or contact coordinator Frank O’Connor at to discuss the options for your future!
