The aim of the Postgraduate Degree in Photography Direction is to initiate its members in learning the necessary knowledge to be able to handle a professional shoot, mainly as a director of photography, but also in any of the trades related to camera and lighting equipment.

Through theoretical and practical approaches, students will develop creative, expressive and narrative formulas that will allow them to have their own voice in the creation of images.

Objectives and Skills

With training based on learning by doing, students will be equipped with the necessary skills to develop safely in the different trades mentioned above.

These skills include, among many others:

  • basic knowledge of the necessary technical concepts,
  • the handling of camera and lighting equipment,
  • the essential skills necessary to carry out the different positions in the camera and lighting equipment (assistant, assistant, gaffer and electrician)
  • the ability to know how to plan and develop the photography of any project from the initial stage of the script to its shooting and staging.

For those who, due to their background or studies, cannot directly access the Master’s Degree in Photography Direction, the Postgraduate Course will offer them the necessary preparation to be able to face the Master’s selection test with guarantees.

Target Audience

Students who wish to improve their reel and knowledge with the aim of opting to enter the Master’s Degree in Photography Direction.
