The photographer is no longer an artisan's job. Digital technology pushes him to "shake off" the obsession with technique in favor of a logic increasingly linked to knowing how to see, to know how to interpret and to know how to tell.Professional opportunitiesThe photographer must be an active, effective and aware interpreter of contemporaneity. And for this reason the lessons are built on the logic of permanent updating. The skill, experience and ability to break the mold of the teachers involved ensure a high-profile training path. At the end of which, students have the opportunity to find professional positions in the world of visual production both nationally and internationally, in various areas of communication and image, from still & motion to storytelling, from advertising to corporate areas.To whom it is addressedThe Master is aimed at all people who want to know and deepen the themes of contemporary photography, transforming passion into a profession. In particular, it is designed for those who want to undertake a path of (re) definition and (re) professional positioning in step with today's contexts. Who are the photographers of tomorrow (and today)? People who have the skills, abilities and critical tools to face the vast scene of contemporary production without complexes, and to start their own independent, continuous and successful business.ProgramBy working side by side with the professionals who lead today's market, students gain an all-round view of new ways to design identity, reportage, advertising campaigns and corporate communication. The Master focuses on concrete experiences and real assignments proposed by companies and institutions. A fundamental part of the program is dedicated to the functioning of the collecting, publishing and fine art market through the construction of a personal portfolio, the first step in establishing relationships with international curators and galleries.TopicsContext of Italian and international photography

Learning directly from the protagonists means acquiring the most advanced visions and methods at the source. Unlike the traditional Masters, the Raffles Milano Masters bring knowledge into action in the classroom thanks to 10 professionals at the top of the market who alternate in the classroom over ten months.
Each professional spends a month with the students. 8 months of 4 weeks and 2 months of 3 weeks.
For each week there is a 6-hour day and an 8-hour day of lessons with the professional.
At the end of each month the student receives an evaluation on the project carried out.
Some of the professionals could be replaced during the Master, with other professionals at the top of the market, keeping the level of the international Faculty unchanged.Leica Agency / Maurizio Beucci

For this reason, students have during the 10 months 200 hours of lessons with the method teachers, the lessons are distributed during the 10 months of the Master.
Some of the method teachers could be replaced during the Master, keeping the Faculty level unchanged.Jacopo Anti
