Honing of vision is done with the help of a well-structured curriculum, which is flexible - evolving even as the course progresses. Students are taught the grammar of photography and now, digital filmmaking and are then left free to create a language of their own.
Developing an inner vision is given just as much importance as observing through the viewfinder. Even as students learn about light, they also learn about life through a host of activities that enrich their time here. This, added to their accumulated life experiences, inspires students to develop their own perspective; their individual way of looking at the world.
On the professional training front, the course content is comprehensive – ranging from enhancement of my observation skills, enhancing compositions, fundamentals, to advanced techniques and finally a choice from a spectrum of specializations. The curriculum is delivered under the leadership and guidance of renowned photographer and inimitable Iqbal Mohamed. Each module is delivered by a practicing industry professional. The course itself is packed with practical hands-on training and the schedule is grueling with us expected to be on our feet all the time. Assignments are designed to make us think and apply ourselves on the ground.
Coming from a world of finance to the world of fine arts, I feel that the gap could only have been bridged by Light and Life Academy.– Faiz Ahmad, Alumnus
We all know what we learn is important, but I’m sure from whom we learn and where we learn is more important. The time I spent in Light & Life academy is the best learning experience of my life so far, the place never misses a chance to give you the best options in photography.
If you’re looking for a place to passionately learn photography and gain a lot of experience doing so then this is it, look nowhere else.– Priyanka Rozario, Alumnae
