Specialization

The wide applicability of photography as a way of conveying visual information and blurring the boundaries between the functions of photography in the world of work implies the need for multidimensional professional training for the photographer. It requires a broader general education (at the levels of cognitive, personal, and social abilities) and a narrower but more in-depth training aimed to develop and deepen the specific professional skills required in a certain field of photography.

The scope of a photographer’s activities – providing photographic services to clients, journalistic photography, advertising photography, video filming – does not cover the whole spectrum of needs since, in today’s world of activity, employers need specialists who can act professionally in the fields of fashion, architecture, the photography, and reproduction of artworks. Students of this study program can adapt to a whole spectrum of needs.
