The Professional Photography Program is designed for students who wish to pursue a career in photography.
Part I / September to December:
The first part comprises the core courses, which cover all aspects of professional photography: photojournalism, studio photography, fashion photography, computer imaging, visual identity, as well as the history of photography.
Top-level professionals hold the courses and monitor the students’ individual acquisition of skills. Outside of class, students independently organize their shooting sessions and post-production, with the continual guidance of their supervisors.
Part II / January to May:
During the second part, the students improve their practical skills and broaden their range of knowledge. Depending on their career choice, they specialize either in studio photography or in photojournalism, and select between several complementary courses and options.
The last week of the second part is dedicated to the set-up of the students’ end-of-the-year exhibition on the school premises, an important event visited by established photographers, photo agencies, iconographers and the press. The students also have the possibility to exhibit their work on the web.
