Master in Photography for Communication

IAAD Istituto D'Arte Applicata e Design
Campus Full time March 2017 Italy Turin

The main purpose of the Master’s Module is to develop a new generation of professionals who are able to imagine, design, build and spread their vision with all the necessary tools to deal with the fluidity of the market. [+]

Despite it’s relatively recent discovery, photography has gone through different evolutions changing itself and the world around it. On one side, it has helped us to better understand the many manifestations of reality. On the other side, photography has unhinged our certainties to reveal a metaphysical inner world. With the advent of digital photography, the photographer’s work- from pioneering alchemy in its infancy, to advanced computing today – has undergone a process of democratization that has broadened the basic skill base and raised the level of expectation at the top. To be an exceptional professional photographer today not only requires having technical expertise at shooting and printing but also a broader awareness of the entire creative and production processes. Familiarity with all technological aspects (shooting, editing, post production, presentation, distribution), the different areas and related parties involved are not enough to meet the market’s needs. Creativity and content design are the difference between the role of a person who merely does the work and of a potential creative director. A holistic approach is therefore essential to establish oneself as a leading professional in the industry. CONTENT AND OBJECTIVES The main purpose of the Master’s Module is to develop a new generation of professionals who are able to imagine, design, build and spread their vision with all the necessary tools to deal with the fluidity of the market. More experienced photographers are hired not only as technical experts, but as real creative directors. In this light, it is clear that a multi-disciplinary approach is the main goal. The ability to understand and control the different aspects of a production. Likewise, the main objective of the course is to develop the creative professional who is able to express their vision while being in line with the needs of the customer, thus resolving the dichotomy between the artist and the technical expert. REQUIREMENTS AND ADMISSION PROCEDURES // Preliminary Module Candidates who are highly motivated, already have an understanding of photographic equipment and their own vision but are keen to increase critical awareness of themselves and knowledge of photographic tools, may access the Module Preliminary. // Master Module In order to access to Master’s Module from Preliminary, all exam in the latter must be passed and 60 ECTS must be achieved in the manner described above. Direct access to the Master’s Module is possible only with the approval of the Co-ordinator of the course based on the evaluation of academic qualifications, professional curriculum and portfolio.

Fashion Photography & Film

Istituto Marangoni
Campus Full time October 2017 Italy Milan

Emphasize the soul or personality of a brand is an extremely sensitive task, a work assigned to the fashion photographer: the strength of a brand’s promotional message is literally in his hands. Fashion photographers [+]

The Course The master’s in fashion photography is designed to convey a wealth of advanced knowledge, while developing a wide range of skills within fashion styling and photography. Through the use of existing and emerging technologies on the contemporary scene, students learn to conduct research independently, guided by a high level of awareness of their abilities. The course is intended to fulfill the changing needs of international fashion and luxury. To become a fashion photographer is to embark on a successful career in one of the many Italian publishing and advertising companies. These professionals work both in the studio or on location for the production of photographs that illustrate and advertise fashion garments, accessories and lifestyle. Their work is a reflection of influences arising from the cinema, from fine art and semiotics, with an eye for brand image. The strength of any advertising campaign is literally in the hands of the fashion photographer. The fashion photographer is a professional figure that can express his or her own talent in an agency, or as an independent freelancer. The two macro areas of application are fashion and advertising: from outdoor photographing, to still-life or photo reporting. This professional figure can also work at special events, in graphic design and in page-layout for editorial. Special technical abilities are also necessary where the professional chooses to become involved in the field of digital media.
