Today almost everyone can operate a camera, but does it make him a photographer? To be a photographer requires a special ability – the ability of photographic vision. This particular vision can be learned and developed over time.
The Ostkreuzschule in Berlin offers training formed in the artisanal, mental, and emotional skills of this ability. After artistic basic studies, the focus is on the development of a personal visual language. Documentary, journalistic, or artistic photography genres are differentiated and interactions and knowledge of design theory, theory and history of photography will be taught. As successful photographers, the agency Ostkreuz reports on their experiences in various photographic genres. Students also learn to make conceptual and substantive decisions through project work. The course comprises 7 semesters in the cultural metropolis of Berlin.
