The photography department allows for both analogue and digital photographic work and is situated in two studios on the 4th floor; one large and one small. Typically, you will be granted access to one of the studios – and often in combination with other facilities such as darkroom, scanner or printing equipment. The large photo studio is a 52 sqm room.
The large and the small studio each is equipped with a Mac computer with Adobe CC for photo and video editing, and both studios can be organized to work on the Imacon scanner. Furthermore, you can apply for access to a b/w darkroom of approx.. 20 sqm. for analogue work, and an IT workshop where you can print in large formats and use a flatbed scanner. In the large studio, you also have an option to set up a photo studio.
Please note that there is no full-time staff member in the photo department. Our staff will introduce you to the equipment and some processes but as a general rule you are expected to be able to work independently in the workshops. You are welcome to contact photography consultant Kirstine Autzen for an introduction and sparring or you can bring your own assistant.
