Course taught in French  | School Certificate | Duration : 1 year under vocational training status. | Entry level: possible after a 2-year post baccalaureate photography course; admission on artist’s portfolio + interview.

In addition to the extra specialisation tuition, the course aims to provide the student with support in the form of tutoring and help him or her complete an individual artistic and technical project that forms part of a personal and professional approach. In addition to the photographic and visual production, visits by a certain number of lecturers, essayists, photographers, visual artists and exhibition organisers are planned as part of the course.

The student’s photographic and visual production is a key aspect of the specialisation in which the project is individually monitored and tutored. It’s a major opportunity for research and creation.
