About

The Digital Portfolio Studio (DPS) provides equipment for School students to migrate their work into the professional environment. It is located in room 020 of the Art Building.

Hours

Mon–Wed 10am–9pm
Thu 10am–4pm
Sun 11am–2pm

Closed for UW holidays and during quarter breaks.

Using the DPS

Students must sign a use agreement before their first reservation is made.
All rules are explained in the use agreement.
Equipment is for use only in the DPS during normal operating hours.

There is a $5 lab fee for each one-hour time block.
Reservations must be made in person in room 010 of the Art Building.
Bring proof of payment when making your reservation.
Advance reservations are highly recommended, especially near the end of a quarter.

Equipment

There are four workstations available:

  • Copystand for smaller, flat work
  • Tabletops with background material for small, 3D work
  • Tented tabletop to control reflection for glass and metal work
  • Large space for large flat and 3D work

Tripods, lighting, and a digital SLR camera are provided.
There is also a computer workstation for transferring your files from the camera's media card to your external drive or email.

Assistance

Students using the DPS are provided with limited assistance from staff to learn how to use the equipment. Periodic workshops will provide students with strategies and resources for pulling together their work into a professional presentation. Workshops are advertised each quarter.

Faculty Usage

The photography workstations and equipment are primarily for the use of School students. Student reservations take priority, and faculty who wish to use the equipment for teaching or personal use, whether in person or via their assistants, may do so only on a walk-in basis.
