Photography (full-time and part-time)

General Information

Almost everyone takes photographs, but not everyone is a photographer. It takes well-honed technical skills to develop into a professional. That is why students are still being trained as photographers. Throughout history, photographers have developed their own culture of high-quality images. Contemporary photography covers an enormous spectrum, branching into all levels of society and occupying an important position in the world of the visual arts.

Much is demanded of contemporary professional photographers. In addition to understanding their profession in a technical and aesthetic sense, they must have profound knowledge and understanding of the meaning, symbolism, value and impact of photographic images. They are also expected to possess a wide range of artistic abilities, in order to achieve desired effects that are capable of standing on their own. In addition, professional photographers must claim their own positions within the contemporary cultural field, and they must be able to distinguish themselves by expressing their personal views both orally and in writing, apart from the actual images.
