High School Photography
(part time)

Campbell Hall, founded in 1944 and situated on 15 naturally landscaped acres in North Hollywood, California, is an independent, coeducational, college preparatory, Episcopal day school for students in kindergarten through grade twelve. The high school division includes grades 9 -12 and is composed of approximately 540 students and 80 full- and part-time faculty and coaches.

The school is committed to fostering a community dedicated to honoring the diversity of the human experience, and is an Equal Opportunity Employer that does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, and creed, place of national origin, sex, age, sexual orientation or physical handicap.

Campbell Hall is guided by the Episcopal tradition of open inquiry and spiritual formation and seeks faculty who are devoted to the pursuit of academic excellence and to the nurturing of decent, loving, and responsible human beings.

Campbell Hall Faculty Description
Campbell Hall (K-12, coeducational, college preparatory, Episcopal) is seeking faculty who are dedicated to the developmentally appropriate education of the whole child; who are interested in learning as well as teaching; who connect their responsibilities with the philosophy and purpose of the school; who teach to empower as well as to inform; who are comfortable with questions as well as with answers; who can work with direction, focus, humor and dignity within the complexities of a diverse school environment; and who will be dedicated to promoting and maintaining an inclusive school community.

In addition to their academic responsibilities, Campbell Hall faculty are involved in many aspects of school life. Coaching interscholastic athletics, chaperoning experiential education trips, participating in community service activities, helping the students to produce school publications, overseeing student council, and leading a special interest club are just a few ways faculty are more deeply involved in the Campbell Hall community.

Each faculty member serves as a student advisor. An Advisor is dedicated to the emotional, intellectual and spiritual growth of each student. Faculty relate to students, parents and colleagues in ways which promote open and supportive communication.

Campbell Hall faculty pride themselves on becoming involved in many aspects of the school community. They are dedicated in their implementation of a vigorous college preparatory academic program and are equally devoted to the emotional and spiritual development of each student. The result is a community where students and adults are confident to learn and grow.

Responsibilities include the following:

Two year-long classes of Photography and/or Photography Advanced (each class meets for 75 minutes every other day)
Only on the days that you are on campus:
Supervision duty (once per quarter/semester during lunch)
All-school faculty staff meetings three times per year

Photography: In this year-long introduction to photography, students will learn the fundamentals of making photographs using the black-and-white darkroom. The curriculum includes how to operate a 35mm single lens reflex camera, process film, make contact sheets and enlargements. In addition, students will learn the language of photography through the study of various visual elements including composition, light, and form. This vocabulary will be used in class discussion, research, presentation, and written assignments. Additionally, students will gain experience in critical discourse through group critique. As our world is now saturated with images, the study of both contemporary and historical photographers will place the medium of photography within a larger cultural context. Photographic assignments are designed to help students learn something specific about camera operation, darkroom technique, and the visual language of photographs. Example assignments include: mood, portraiture, self-portraiture, landscape, and narrative. Within the parameters of each project, students are encouraged to photograph what intrigues them most. By the end of the course, students will develop a portfolio of work that spans varied subject matter, all of which is important to them. (Grades 9-12)

Photography Advanced: In this semester course, students pursue their study of photography on an individualized basis with a focus on each student finding their voice as a photographer. S1 is dedicated to digital photography and color printing while S2 is focused on advanced film and darkroom technique in black-and-white. Through open-ended prompts, students may choose their own subjects and design their own projects. In addition to expanding their vision as photographers, students will learn more in-depth camera operation and exposure techniques, lighting, use of Adobe Creative Suite, digital printing, and darkroom printing on large paper. In the search of finding their personal vision, students will investigate various aspects of the history of photography and its traditions, collect inspiration in sketchbooks, and refine their skills in analyzing photographs. By the end of the course, students will have developed a new body of work along with a written artist statement. (Grades 10-12; one semester; prerequisite: Photography)
