The Corona crisis has further aggravated the already difficult economic situation of freelance photographers and photo artists. More than ever before, the principle applies: Only those who, in addition to an in-depth examination of content and design of their projects, also deal intensively with the non-creative aspects of their professional activity can compete internationally!

The fs-SUMMER SCHOOL would like to offer assistance here! During four compact days, renowned, internationally connected experts from the photography industry will impart important first-hand know-how on planning and realising independent photographic projects. Workshops on editing photo stories for print and online publications, the art market for photographers, business communication in times of digitalisationand cooperation with museums and exhibition institutions will support participants in successfully realising their own freelance projects and making a (better) living from their work. Tips and tricks for everyday professional life will not be neglected either!
