In an effort to fill the vacuum in high-level education in visual arts in India, Udaan brings its professional photography courses in photojournalism and commercial photography for those opting to take photography as their career. Powered by a vastly experienced faculty of professional photographers and the latest state-of-the-art teaching techniques, the course will combine a sound understanding of the fundamentals and theory of photography with hands-on practical assignments in real-time situations that will prepare students for the real, ever-changing professional world.

From picking up the basics to shooting in complex and difficult situations, being adept with the latest technologies to handling people and making professional decisions, the course covers a wide range of skills around the craft of photography, making it a unique and most comprehensive learning program available in the country.

The top-class, versatile faculty of award-winning photographers brings to the course their immense experience and diverse styles of photography. Each subject is handled in-depth, regularly involving other professionals from the industry and allied sectors. The classes are highly practice-oriented and students passing out from Udaan would be a cut above the rest, with their own distinctive styles and creativity vision.

The course aims to make the aspirant photographer competent to face challenges in the professional world - from the skills of photography to handling newest technology and managing people. And most important, it gives a personal interface with the industry, which is much needed to get the initial break in the industry.

A multifaceted and comprehensive course like this has been conspicuously absent in the teaching of visual arts in the country. It comes as a great stepping-stone for those creative among you looking for that final-cut to become a true-blue professional.

There is no doubt the country has a vast pool of young talent in photography and Udaan strives to play its role and contribute by channelising this talent to make the country and its lensmen among the finest and a force to reckon with on a global platform.
