Intense Course of Photography

If You prefer to pursue the same content as in the semester seminar „Digital Photography“ in just one week, then this is the perfect course for You. The course takes place at the romantic location - Spittelberggasse in Vienna, just beyond the world-famous Museumsquartier MQ. The content is identical to the half-year lasting course of LIK Academy of Photography. Only  the assignment of photographic tasks and the deadline for your personal photo portfolio is structured differently. Photographic assignments partially are due for the next day. Surely such a compressed week is intense and requires your full engagement and dedication. The LIK Intensive Summer Course is running for the fourth year already with remarkably high level of portfolio folders.
