This master provides working tools that students can develop and apply in the different domains of photography.
Each student can decide when to enroll on each module. We aim to teach a methodology, not a series of recipes or technical details. Our guest specialists in photography, edition, post production, lighting and communication theory will provide their own point of view and will stress the aspects of major relevance. This richness and its international spirit make this master something really special.

The European Master of Contemporary Photography is, at present, the most ambitious training proposal in the field of art photography and aims to become meeting point for artists and professionals, enriching this field in Spain.
Practical and innovative, it is a unique programme based on the excellence of its faculty (Martin Parr, Simon Roberts, Joan Fontcuberta and Andreas Müller-Pohle, among others). It emerged on the basis of the premise that there exists a European conceptual and creative identity, which can and should be an important reference point in the fields of academia, culture and the art market. In this sense, the participation of students from a range of continents is especially interesting and enriching.
In consequence, the European Master of Contemporary Photography is based on three main pillars:
• International nature, with a special focus on the European realm.
• The excellence of the faculty.
• A focus on the production of an artistic project.
