Technology / Photomedia


Photomedia provides a small computer studio for majors and graduate students in the program. There is a wide assortment of equipment available including Apple MacPro computers and Epson 4900 inkjet printers. 

The computers are equipped with the same suite of software tools found in all School of Art, Art History, and Design (SOAAHD) computing labs. Students have access to the shared storage network linked to all student computers at the SOAAHD. You can begin a project in any lab, save to the shared network storage volume, and continue working on it at any other SOAAHD lab.

This link provides a list of equipment that can be checked out by students in the Photomedia program. 


Students are responsible for repair or replacement costs related to damage, theft, or loss of all equipment checked out from the SoACC. This includes digital cameras and digital video cameras. Please be careful with these devices so that they continue to be available for use.


All personal work must be saved on your student Dante account, UW Drive, USB mini-drive, CD/R, CD/RW, DVD-R disks, or external hard drive. We provide temporary storage on a Network volume — ArtStudent_share (note that this storage area is not backed up and is meant for temporary storage only if you need to access the file(s) from another student-managed computer before storing on your own media or other storage location). If you need assistance with systems or software in the lab please see one of the lab monitors.

Remember to remove your files from the SoACC network storage area (ArtStudent_share) at the end of each quarter!
