Structure of the program
The first semester comprises the core courses, which cover all aspects of professional photography, from September to December. 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, under the continual guidance of Spéos studio teacher.
During the second semester, the students improve their practical skills and broaden their range of knowledge, from January to May. They begin a cycle of personal production, under the artistic direction of Dominique Issermann and Paolo Roversi.
The last week of the second semester 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, picture editors, news and advertising agencies. The students also have the possibility to exhibit their work online in the web galleries.
Expert modules + Arles International Photo Festival
The Expert modules (held in English only) aim at deepening the students’ previous knowledge and skills in those areas that are most demanded by the professional market. Each module takes place over several weeks, in June and July.
Courses and conferences are taught by experienced and recognized professionals who share their experience and know-how from their respective fields of expertise. These speakers emphasize the practical ownership of these skills and offer students valuable experience gain for their own personal projects.
In July, the students equally participate for several days at the Rencontres d’Arles — a major international photography event, during which they visit exhibitions, present their portfolios and start networking.
