Fashion Photography

The Condé Nast Fashion Photography Program is a unique and immersive opportunity to learn important aspects of an essential media practice. The program is suitable for a variety of levels, ranging from the fashion-aware amateur photographer to the semi-professional photographer. It is taught over a three month period by our distinguished, internationally sourced guest lecturers, and our renowned Condé Nast team. Selected work from students will be exhibited in our gallery and presented on the website to an international audience.


The Fashion Photography program has developed a creative approach to respond to clients, editorial and advertising briefs, as well as encouraging an individual style. By working with stylists and models, you will gain competencies in practical, technological, and experimental digital fashion photography, in addition to achieving proficiency in related post-production image-making for a variety of print and online media and market levels.


A balanced program structure of modules, lectures, hands-on DSLR shooting exercises, critiques, team projects, and self-directed ventures will deepen your skills of fashion photography in order to develop a personal professional portfolio that will assist you in gaining future assignments.


Supporting Units cover key aspects of the competitive global image industry, including both the Chinese and other Asian markets. You will explore fashion photography for men’s and women’s clothing, still-life for accessories, beauty and portraiture in print and digital fashion media, and enrich your visual knowledge by increasing your understanding of the concepts, editors, photographers, models and stylists behind iconic images. Additionally, you will observe how a magazine works by scrutinizing the roles of the commissioning editor, art director, post-production editing, and effects of text and typography on the image.
