The two-year course in commercial photography & DSLR Flimmaking is a comprehensive program that not only empowers the students with cutting-edge professional skills in all aspects of commercial photography & filmmaking, but also orients the students to fine arts and its aesthetics, as well as to emerging technologies and new visual mediums. The content of the course is a unique initiative with a holistic approach to commercial  photography, combining art and state-of the-art technology. At Udaan we don't like to create just technicians, but artistic craftsmen with their own style and flair. And a team of leading, award winning professional photographers, each a specialist in his or her own field will guide the students through this two-year long journey and beyond.

The uniqueness of the two-year course lies in its ability to combine fine-art with  state-of-the-art technology. While on one hand the students get oriented to the sensibilities of fine-art and painting, on the other the students get trained with the latest photography equipment and lights in the large studios of Udaan, in the heart of Mumbai.

To cope with the challenges of the emerging market, the students are taken beyond still imagery and given an in-depth training in videography (including editing and audio) as well. And along with empowering the students with technical and artistic skills, the students are also oriented to the legal and financial aspects of the industry,  including practical knowledge of assisting a mentor or running one's own show, to handling business and people. 

During the course the students get to regularly work and learn from not just professional photographers, but also a host of other professionals like food stylists, models, make-up artists, editing experts etc. A comprehensive computer lab and a library are at the disposal of the students.
