The PHotoEspaña Master’s in photography draws on all the experience of the Festival to offer a comprehensive programme of training in photography, designed especially for people who wish to develop their own work and consolidate their activity in the sector.

The programme serves as a framework for the production of new output and offers the opportunity to create an international network of distinguished professionals. Students explore the theoretical aspects of the image through a range of practical tasks and they are each required to produce a self-published book, an exhibition project and an audiovisual piece.

The curriculum is divided into modules and the tutors are active professionals with a distinguished track record. Professional visits to artists’ studios, galleries, collections, printing presses and art centres complete the programme. The course offers students all the tools they need to complete their activity, from the creation to the promotion of their projects.
