Objectifs du programme

The Photography program aims to properly train a photographer. Among their tasks, a photographer takes contracts from communication and design agencies, media, industries, companies, establishments, institutions and the general public. A photographer may also create personal and artistic projects. Photographers are often independantly employed. Their work consists of making portraits, photographing special events, commercial and industrial photos, advertisements, documentaries, and reports on art and authors. Most of the time, they work on evaluating the needs of their clientele and planning photo sessions as well as props, background and proper lighting. After processing their material, the final product is delivered to the client. Photographers often manage their own photo archives and assure that their work is produced.

Photographe

Les photographes réalisent des photos (portraits, évènements, publicité, presse, secteur commercial, industriel, médical, etc.), les développent et les retouchent. Ils peuvent aussi travailler comme assistant d’un photographe ou dans un commerce dédié à la vente de matériel de photographie ou dans un laboratoire de développement de photographies. C’est un métier passionnant pour les personnes créatives qui ont des aptitudes artistiques et le souci du détail. Une carrière de photographe exige un bon sens de l’organisation, des qualités de communicateur, une tolérance à la précarité et une personnalité polyvalente, minutieuse et débrouillarde.
