The International Photo Center is a private educational institution dedicated to promoting the highest level of photographic art practice. It is a totally unique institution and is created with the intention to become a new reference point for photography. We opened our first branch in Helsinki, Finland in 2011 and we are opening a new one in Milan, Italy in the Fall of 2018.
We are committed to helping people explore their professional options and to mastering their craft, while developing their creative talents. We offer a complete range of activities related to photography such as courses and workshops, photographic tours, exhibitions, meetings with artists and photographers, lectures and books presentations.
Our goal and mission is to create a vibrant and lively photography community where people learn the technique and art of photography from professionals who are driven by an intense passion, love and enthusiasm for photography. All of the teaching staff at the International Photo Center are recognized, successful photographers with international experience who specialize in various disciplines like photojournalism and documentary photography, portrait and lighting, travel photography, multimedia, and commercial photography among the others.
There are several educational offerings: week-courses, evening-courses, weekend workshops, travel workshops, seminars, etc. All the activities in these courses are open to all and are designed for all levels (beginner, intermediate and advanced) and are offered in English and in Italian. The classes are small, 3 to 12 participants each, depending on the subject. Doing so, specific and individual attention can be granted to everyone.
We hope to see you soon, either in Milan, Helsinki or around the world!
