The Seasonal in Fashion Photography offers a multidisciplinary approach in theory and in practice, in order to enter the world of fashion photography. The course looks at everything from the history of photography to the actual shot itself, including set and location studies, lighting management, the use of cameras, and casting. In this course, aesthetic sensitivity, colour theory, semiotic approaches and post production are essential training elements to form the personal taste needed to become a new creator of fashion imagery.

Sven Marquardt

Born 1962 in East Berlin, Sven Marquardt was a defining part of the emerging punk, new wave and art scene in the Prenzlauer Berg neighborhood in the mid-1980s. With the fall of the Berlin Wall, he temporarily halted his work as a photographer and immersed himself in the reunited city’s rising night club scene, working as a bouncer at Ostgut club and the legendary Berghain. Today, Marquardt is considered the only East Berlin photographer whose work follows the tradition of visual artists Arno Fischer and Sibylle Bergemann. He has published three art books and a memoir and has collaborated with Hugo Boss, Levi’s and Germany’s cultural institution Goethe Institut.
