Class Fashion Photography

  • Presentation


    The Photography course is practical in nature and aims to awaken students' aesthetic sensibility for creating fashion images. The images must be able to communicate concepts, stories and trends of fashion brands and designers.

    Teaching methodologies and assessment

    Various important aspects of photography will be focussed on through visual and exemplary presentations. The work proposed for assessment will be carried out in the classroom and monitored by the teacher, but should include some time for autonomous work.

    The type of work is essentially practical, involving research, planning, organisation and execution.

    Student-centred teaching and learning by doing are encouraged, with the teacher facilitating learning.
