Photography at FAMU

Learn from the Best

You’ll be based at FAMU, one of Europe’s top art schools. And you’ll work with Štěpánka Stein, an award-winning documentary photographer. Though she’s an accomplished and renowned figure in her field, Stein 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 will inspire you and inform your work on digital equipment long after the program ends.

Prague: Perfect European City

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