Basic Photography Program

Instructors: Yiannis Rizomarkos, Thodoris Nikolaou, Eleni Mouzakiti, Konstantinos Tsiliakos

With two annual courses and an additional course dedicated to portfolio development, the Basic Program is the school’s most comprehensive course of choice. Aimed at any passionate aspiring photographer, regardless of age or previous experience with the camera. The weekly courses aim at the technical and technological training of the student, at his artistic development but, mainly, at the creation of a new generation of photographers with courage, patience and love for the 8th art. Experienced teachers -all of them active and renowned professionals in the field- pay special attention to the student’s development. Invited speakers and specialized courses expand the range of available knowledge and photographic experiences. Depending on the goals of each student, professional or amateur, the program is flexible and adapts to different rates. At the same time, each cycle is independent and culminates with a group exhibition after the end of each year.

The weekly lessons of the 1st cycle of basic studies at Orama are ideal for beginner-level photographers who want to enter the world of photography. During this year, all the basic principles of photography – both technical and artistic – are taught – and the participants evolve creatively through theoretical lessons and practical training in a comprehensive and wide range of courses.


The second cycle is aimed at photographers who have the basic technical and theoretical training and want to take a closer look at the photographic medium. With project assignment, specialized courses and advanced teaching techniques, the year-long follow-up pushes the new photographer to the next level and familiarizes them with different and various photographic items to discover their own style.
