If you love Photography, you may know that the term “Storytelling” is a recent one, but not the art of telling stories through images – an indispensable ability for anyone working in this field, which you can learn and develop with us. Using this skill, you’ll be able to integrate yourself more easily into the workplace, in the areas of both journalism and advertising, as well as evolving your own personal poetic narrative.
Follow with us an educational journey, through the art of storytelling through imagery, which focuses on the study and understanding of the construction and putting together of a static film, a narration through photography that will enable you to offer your work for any end, either commercial or personal.
You’ll participate in a serious and professional Editing and Storytelling course, aimed at both beginners and professional photographers.
You’ll learn to bring out the facts by transmitting a pathos worthy of a playwright, with parallels, symbolism and metaphors, transforming something that was to be a simple news article, into something more like a work of literature. This is a technical and artistic skill that involves various different fields, including photography, with a particular focus on photojournalism.
