Summer of Photography Vienna 2018

  • LIK Akademie für Foto und Design 17 Seidengasse Wien, Wien, 1070 Austria (map)


If you prefer to pursue the same content as in the semester seminar „Digital Photography“ in just one week, then this is the perfect course for you. The course takes place at the romantic location - Spittelberggasse in Vienna, just beyond the world-famous Museumsquartier MQ. The content is identical to the half-year lasting course of LIK Academy of Photography. Only  the assignment of photographic tasks and the deadline for your personal photo portfolio is structured differently. Additional analysis of pictures will not be possible between the individual lecture days. Photographic assignments partially are due for the next day. Classes will be also held in the evening. Surely such a compressed week is intense and requires your full engagement and dedication. You will have 3 months to complete your personal semester portfolio folder. The mandatory second semester will be scheduled together within the group during this first block. It will take place on two weekends at the end of February and at the end of March. The LIK Intensive Summer Course is running for the fourth year already with remarkably high level of portfolio folders.
