Creative implementation procedures

The aim of the study is to prepare students for mastering custom work in the field of photographic and audiovisual production and for mastering creative implementation procedures. In the studios, students have been working on semester projects since the beginning, which are divided into short-term art-technical seminars and author’s exhibition projects. During the first year, the students can handle the basic compositional and expression means of static and dynamic image, its recording and processing. Students will get to know studio photography practice, which includes creation with sensing and lighting technology, basics of post-production, color management and work with professional programs for photo and video processing. An integral part of the study is, from the first year, involvement in projects that have the parameters of real orders. Students participate in competitions and workshops with guests.

Practical activity

Students deepen their acquired knowledge with an accent on their own author’s work, which is based on fixed technical, theoretical and thought base. Their role as a photographer in the environment of creative communication is established; the subjects develop students’ creative thinking for instance in the field of advertising, portraiture, illustration of literary work, music video or fashion video, sporting events, architecture, etc. There are also inter-studio projects linked with the area of practice of orders. Thanks to close contact with contemporary theorists, designers, audiovisual artists and leading experts in the field of media, marketing and advertising agencies, students have the opportunity to expand their thought background, which is important for their own practical activities.

Implementation and practice

Output in the third year leads to the autonomy and individuality of visual communication with a view to specific market requirements. An integral part of the study is practice in an advertising agency or photographic studio. The main goal of the final year is the realization of the bachelor’s thesis. To prepare for the final work, a specialized seminar is used, in which the student learns about the methodological bases, the choice of appropriate literature and the formalities of the professional text.
