Who are we?
We are a unique School of Photography in BiH
"School of Photography" was registered in 2017, which is when it first opened its doors to all citizens regardless of their age. Suddenly, grandchildren and grandmothers, mothers with their daughters, elderly, students, high school students, middle-age people with regular job, all come to our School of Photography. They were connected by one goal: to learn and apply photography in their everyday life. This way, the School of Photography played a crucial role in elimination of many stereotypes and prejudices in the community and sent a strong message about learning and working together regardless of age or affiliation.
School of Photography is located in Zenica's City Museum and it all started with 17 participants. Currently, we have over 50 members, but over 150 participants have been trained. The need for this program is best described by the situation during the COVID-12 restrictions when instead of 32 allowed participants, XNUMX came to class and insisted that we not separate them. There was a shortage of chairs in the room, but one of our members brought his own chair so others could have a place to sit!
School of Photography had a number of exhibitions, presentations, events, photo shootings, participation in events, it organized events too. Our members have been rewarded for their achievements, including first place by the Italian Embassy and first place at the 23rd ZDK Film Festival. Most recently, a first place in Photography by the city of Zenica during the yearly Zenica's Spring event. School of Photography team has been recognized by many organizations, and we were official photographers during Zenica's XNUMXk race, third year in a raw. The team works closely with Mountaineer rescue groups, VEDRO- mounteneering association, Svjetlo Riječi magazine, as well as many other local associations in BiH, USA, France, Serbia and other parts of the world.
