Electronic Media & Photography

About the EMP Learning Community

The goal of the ACE Electronic Media and Photography Learning Community is to continue year-round dialogue retaining to electronic media and photography and how they can be better implemented to communicate the findings of our institutions to the public we serve, while expanding the professional development and communication opportunities of our members.

We are photographers, videographers,  audio producers, and multimedia journalists dedicated to telling our institutional stories in ways that compel, persuade and educate. But the traditional lines between video, photography, mutimedia, and audio are disappearing...and that means we must constantly learn new things about our craft. Join us in this effort by becoming part of our learning community!
