Photography In Prague

Learn from the Best

You’ll be based at FAMU, one of the Europe’s top art schools. And you’ll work with Miroslav Vojtěchovský, one of FAMU’s most famous faculty. An accomplished and renowned photographer in his own right, Vojtěchovský still takes the time to mentor budding photographers, one student at a time.

Study the Classics: Analog, Darkroom

Want to work in traditional media? This program is one of the few that focuses on analog photography— medium- and large-format, as well as use of the darkroom. Learning traditional techniques now means that you’ll have the skills you need in hand when you’re ready to make the leap to digital later on.

Prague: Perfect European City

Cobblestone streets, castles and open-air markets. Trams that make exploring Prague a breeze. Trains that put the rest of Europe within your grasp. The romance, the beauty, the ease, the art, the international flair…what will you love most about Prague?
