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.
