PUNE: Ace photographer Gautam Rajadhyaksha will lead the Symbiosis International University's latest initiative in the form of a school of photography (SSP) that was announced here on Friday, to coincide with the International Photography Day.
The school will offer sixmonth diploma and one-year advanced diploma courses. Besides, two-day weekend courses that will focus on the basic aspects of photography at its newly-established campus at Lavale. "We will begin with weekend courses from September while the diploma and advanced diploma studies will have to be aligned with our academic year at the Lavale campus, which will happen from the second half of the ongoing year," Vidya Yeravdekar, principle director, SIU, told a news conference.
While there is no age barrier for students and photography lovers, who desire to join the course, the eligibility too has been restricted to good grades in Std XII and a basic grasp of communication, said Yeravdekar. According to SIU vicechancellor Bhushan Patwardhan, "The SSP forms a key component of our thrust on promoting inter-disciplinary studies aimed at giving a holistic and fulfilling experience to students from our existing seven faculties, viz law, management, computer studies, health sciences, engineering, media, communication and design (M&CD), humanities and social sciences." Rajadhyaksha said, "The courses, designed by professional practitioners and to be taught by well-established specialists in the subjects, will help students become complete professionals. There is a roster of visiting faculty, who are renowned names in the world of commercial photography."
