The aim of the Photography Course of the Leonardo da Vinci Academy of Florence is the technical control of the camera and the introduction into the world of photography, from architecture to portraits, from studio photography to reportage.
The approach to the photographic culture, the visual reading of images and the knowledge of some of the best photographers in the world, is the way to understand that life has many nuances and all depends on the perspective through which we see the world, as the vision of everything around us can be manipulated somehow by our creativity.

At the end of the course participants will be aware of the main technical basis for the production and processing of digital photographs, will be able to read critically the images and to develop their creative skills.

The course is available all year round (except august) in the Basic and Semi-intensive form, with a minimum attendance of two weeks. Classes for the Basic course are held twice a week, classes for the Semi-intensive course  three times a week.

The course is suitable both for beginners and students of more advanced levels and the teacher speaks Italian and English.
Students are required to bring their own DLSR camera.
