In this programme, we focus on helping you develop your own vision and visual language. Because a real photographer focuses on the world. And not just with his camera.
Audiovisual Techniques: Photography programme
Power and imagination
Today, everyone is a bit of a photographer. With the emphasis on ‘a bit’. Because a powerful image is much more than a well-timed click or atmospheric filter.
But to get started, all you need is an open mind. We start at the beginning and explore all facets of photography. From framing to retouching. From the second year onwards, you develop your own speciality and identity via themes. This can be fiction (for example, fashion or advertising) or non-fiction (for example, journalism or architecture).
You graduate with an expo and an internship (yes, of course, you can also do that abroad). And with great future prospects: our graduates often work as freelance photographers and/or image editors as part of editorial teams, on film sets and at advertising agencies. Camera ready?
Many photographers work as freelancers. That’s why we try to prepare you thoroughly for a life as a creative entrepreneur.
Communication is also important when it comes to images. You learn to communicate professionally, both with the models in front of your camera and with clients on the other side of the world.
A powerful image can also be a moving image. A 3D image or a moving image. You experiment extensively with new media.
You learn the ins and outs of graphic design. So that you are able to place your work within a context. Or tell others how to do that.
Basic photography techniques
Even the most creative visual language starts from technical perfection. You learn everything about lighting, composition and so on.
A powerful photo is not ready in a single click. You also learn how to get the perfect click in Photoshop, Illustrator, Indesign, Lightroom, etc., so that you can finish your images to perfection.
