Program Overview

Students will study Art, Fashion, Cuisine and Documentary photography in Paris, France, one of the most beautiful cities in the world. We will attend and photograph and work behind the scenes at the fashion shows, photograph in the streets, cafes, and markets. Students will attend a number of lectures, guest speakers, studio visits, fashion shows, photo shoots and museums. Travel and photograph on location in the cafes, markets, and streets of Paris, France while exploring the culture, architecture, the people, art and street fashion and museums etc. This program is based around what’s going on in the city during January. The program is geared towards the students that are self-motivated, students must know how to use their camera / smart phone in advance. This class is for those students that have a point of view, their own voice and want to explore the most beautiful cities in the world.
