Our Facilities


In the heart of historic downtown Missoula, Montana, you’ll find RMSP world headquarters in the 120-year-old Higgins Building. Behind the doors of 216 N. Higgins Avenue you will find our classrooms (including a rock-arched room affectionately known as “The Quarry”), computer labs, a state-of-the-art print lab, and our staff offices. Our classrooms and labs feature the latest versions of Adobe® software, quality printers, and advanced instructional tools. Our studio gear, including Profoto lights and Manfrotto accessories, is current and proven by professionals in the field.

The Rocky Mountain School of Photography gallery, Missoula’s only art gallery to exclusively feature photography, serves as our main entrance. The gallery exhibits work by RMSP staff, instructors, and students.

Amid a lively, walkable medley of coffee shops, theaters, restaurants, parks, watering holes, mountains, and rivers, we think you’ll find both our facilities and our home state a vibrant, welcoming place to learn photography.
