EXPLORATION & VISUAL DEVELOPMENT

In the first year, you experience a thorough and intensive introduction to a broad variety of aspects connected to the field of photography. 

Through theory, field trips, exhibitions and events, you will quickly broaden your knowledge on photography and beyond. You will learn how to manage your studies and how to structure your work process. In this first year, there is a strong emphasis on improving your technical skills, including postproduction in photography. You will be challenged on content by doing projects in the role of a street photographer, a portrait photographer, a studio photographer and more. All these exercises and projects teach you a variety of strategies to create work. 

Alongside, you will follow basic courses in graphic design, moving image and interactive media to better understand how contemporary photography is intertwined with other media. By exploring the breadth of the photographic landscape, you will start to discover where your own true interests lie. 

At the end of the first year, you will make an application for either the Documentary or Fiction specialisation. The motivation for your preferred direction is clearly reflected in the work you’ll show at your collective assessment and underpinned by your verbal presentation.
