Any number of anecdotes point to a sharp rise in the number of adjunct faculty currently teaching in photographic education. The 2012 Mac-on-Campus Photography Survey goes further and helps us understand the depth of this trend. While such data can tell us some things, practical examples can offer a clearer view to both advantages and limits of adjunct positions.
Consider the following three case studies as a guide to successful approaches in pursuing a photographic education career. For a broad view, we have chosen a young adjunct at the start of her career, a mid-career individual selected for a faculty post because of his dedication as an adjunct and a successful artist who seeks to give back by teaching part-time in different venues.

Three photography programs staffed by dedicated educators who balance teaching with successful photography careers
“Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.”
— Benjamin Franklin
At a time when photo education is increasingly influenced by trends such as online learning and systems to economize time and minimize contact, stories about personal guidance by educators who combine teaching expertise with high level, practical knowledge and professional clout offer a breath of fresh air. For students seeking to navigate the rocky terrain from classroom learning to success in the real world, direct contact with instructors offering this level of perspective on the field can be an invaluable educational asset. Here, we investigate three photo programs in varied educational settings, each staffed by distinguished teachers who serve as positive role models to their students while simultaneously pursuing flourishing photography careers of their own.
