At Alberta College of Art and Design, the school I teach at, the Photography students earn a Bachelor of Design degree. So they are forced to take design classes (that’s one I teach). I can see on the first day of the semester, the pain in the faces of the students who really don’t want to consider design as part of their practice. This Design Taxi article on photographer Jens Lennartsson is a great example of how design skills help a photographer in his/her practice.
