The Postgraduate Course in Advertising Photography and Editorial is the last of the three modules that form the Master of Professional Photography at the IED Madrid, this specialization course is dedicated to advertising and the publishing world, which means that it includes the knowledge of the theory and practice of design, the edition of photographs for magazines and books, the work with models for commercial campaigns, business plans and contracts, author rights, media relations, communication theory, advanced retouching and color correction and location management. A solid and attractive personal work can make a difference when it comes to convincing customers and commercial agents. With this premise, the improvement of professional skills of students in advertising and editorial photography is complemented by the development of a personal project.

They are also teachers of the European Master's Degree in Photography and will guide students through tutorials in the creation of a personal artistic project that will go far beyond pure technical excellence.
