Ten amazing months. Ten top-level international photography experts in the lecture theatre, one every month. Ten unique chances for learning by doing, elbow-to-elbow with the best. The Raffles Milano Masters: someone has come up with them at last.
Photography means providing a useful and interesting model of the world, one that helps us love reality by talking about it. To be a photographer is no longer a craftsman trade. Digital technology forces him to shrug off the obsession with the technique in favor of a mindset increasingly related to the ability to see, to interpret and to narrate.
Photographers have to be active, effective and conscious interpreters of the contemporary world. That is why the lectures are built around a lifelong education approach. Our lecturers are experienced, skilled and great at their work: this ensures that our students will receive high-profile training, culminating in the possibility of them finding professional placement in various areas of visual production, communication, and image, both in Italy and internationally, from still & motion and storytelling to advertising and corporate fields.
Who should attend
This Master is designed to suit the needs of everyone who wants to learn and develop the themes of contemporary photography, transforming a passion into a profession. In particular, it is designed for students aiming to (re)define and (re)position themselves professionally, to keep abreast of today’s developing contexts. Who are the photographers of the future (and of the present)? They are people with the skills, abilities and critical awareness it takes to tackle the enormous scene of contemporary production without any hang-ups and to launch an independent, continuing and successful business of their own.
Working side by side with the professionals who lead in today’s market, our students acquire a fully rounded appreciation of the new approaches to designing an identity, a reportage, advertising campaigns and corporate communications. This Master focuses on tangible experience with real assignments proposed by firms and institutions.
