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.
