The photographer becomes an artist when he is provided with creativity, knows the technique, and adopts a multidisciplinary approach: a professional able to exploit his talent and operate dynamically in the world of image, exploring areas such as reportage, advertising, and fashion photography, photo book, fine art, video, and multimedia.
The overproduction of images has redefined the role of photography and the photographer, who must constantly evolve, acquiring an open and contemporary vision.
RUFA Bachelor of Arts in Photography, also thanks to the third year Masterclass coordinated by Contrasto, a leading agency in the field of art photography, aims to guide the student through a highly professional path that combines the approach to reportage with artistic research.
