Get Great Cole Photos Online and Support Our Photography Class!
In a smartphone world, we all have good snapshots, but without the right camera, the right lens, and the right angle, it's hard to get a great photograph.

Whether you want a 4x6 to stick on the fridge, a 16 x 20 to frame on the wall, or a canvas gallery wrap to feature unique artwork, you can select your image and have the perfect print mailed directly to your home! All items are competitively priced and every sale supports the Cole journalism program helping fund gallery exhibits, photographic equipment, and sending students to conferences and competitions. Visit their photo page at www.colehs.smugmug.com and use the password COUGARS (all caps) to see these amazing images.
