Education in photography

1  Photography has become one of the most popular hobbies in today's world. It’s also known as the most recent form of art.  Photography is usually seen as “a favorite toy which can freeze the time”, and is considered the best means to turn it back, rewind and watch it closely… But in a more generic sense, photography is a historical line, a piece of art, self-expression of an artist, brought about by their state of mind, character, experience and professionalism. Therefore, in photography just as in any other sphere there are professionals, experts and specialists, and just as in any other science, there should be its system of training professionals and a significant scientific basis. The number of people eager to be trained as professionals in photography is constantly growing. Quality photography requires much effort and vast knowledge.

As a keeper of old traditions in the national education in the humanities, RSUH has created highly favorable climate for the training of classy specialists in photography, who can make photography real art. The art of photography is now one of the most creative specializations on RSUH. Since October 2006 creative workshop has been working in the College of the Humanities. The originator and the leader of the workshop is Galina Viktorovna Volkova, a member of the Commonwealth of Artists.
