Photography courses

The photography courses, focusing on the landscape, are open to all those who would like to learn more about photographic techniques: still lives, outdoors and indoors. The courses are divided into three modules: in each one of them a specific subject will be examined, from history of photography to landscape photography and retouching.

The courses in photography are divided into three modules:

A - History of photography
B - Photographing the landscape
C - Retouching photographs

The three modules may be followed separately or in following ways:

Basic: 1 module (A, B or C)
Advanced: 2 modules (A+B, B+C or C+A)
Superior: 3 modules (A+B+C)

Each single course lasts 2 weeks. Classes take place in the afternoons, from Monday to Friday. Besides theory there are also practical lessons in gardens and parks in Florence and Fiesole as well as some laboratory hours.

Though classes are held mainly in Italian, on request, we can organise lessons in English.
