The Basic Studies Program is the ideal choice for anyone seeking a deeper understanding of the photographic medium and an evolved creative expression through a complete educational process. It is suitable for amateur photographers as well as for those hoping to photograph professionally.

Our main goal is for students to build the knowledge, the patience and the passion necessary for their next steps in artistic or commercial photography.Through a weekly educational program centered on the student, the foundations are set to develop photographic abilities in a supportive environment. Our teachers form a team of experienced professionals in the field, while a series of guest lecturers will further enrich the learning process. The program consists of three individual annual cycles that culminate in a photography exhibition at the start of each new academic year, and one more dedicated to the development of a complete photographic project.

Carefully selected international books are available on the core subjects.Upon conclusion of each cycle, a participation certificate is awarded, while students can benefit from Full Study with unlimited access to workshops or receive a 20% discount on all school workshops.
