The core faculty members at LLA are aligned with the philosophy of the founder, Iqbal Mohamed: share knowledge and the willingness to work with students who have varying learning curves. As practicing professionals, they help reinvent the syllabus to be relevant in terms of trends, techniques and aesthetics. From our pool of faculty members, those coming to teach the course may change from year to year based on availability.
Iqbal Mohamed is the fulcrum of all things academic at LLA. He crafts every detail of the curriculum, re-inventing it every year, while mentoring the faculty and inspiring all who study at LLA.
As a founder and mentor at LLA, ‘Iqbal Sir’ as he’s known fondly by his students, has been a beacon for all things photography. His deep knowledge of the art and science of photography and an innate desire to share his knowledge serves as the bedrock of the institution. He believes that everyone is inherently creative and can nurture their inner vision in the right environment.
His interactions with the students are not just limited to the sessions conducted by him, he can be frequently seen outside his office, having discussions and conversations with students and faculty, sharing his experiences on photography, life and everything in between.
