SHOOT TO FAME WITH UDAAN

Smart Photography - - Ad­ver­to­rial -

Udaan’s birth was a re­sult of col­lec­tive in­spi­ra­tion of lead­ing pho­tog­ra­phy pro­fes­sion­als. They came to­gether to lay the foun­da­tion of Udaan School of Pho­tog­ra­phy, This in­sti­tute aims to pro­vide world class ed­u­ca­tion in vi­su­als arts in In­dia. With the ef­forts that have been put in by Udaan’s ex­ten­sive fac­ulty, the stu­dents have made their teach­ers and the in­sti­tute proud with awards and recog­ni­tions be­stowed on them, which also in­cludes a Pulitzer Prize nom­i­na­tion. Apart from the fac­ulty, Udaan is si­t­u­ated in the heart of In­dia’s ad­ver­tis­ing & en­ter­tain­ment cap­i­tal. The pho­tog­ra­phy school’s close prox­im­ity to the head of­fices of ad­ver­tis­ing agen­cies , film pro­duc­tion com­pa­nies, news­pa­pers and other me­dia or­ga­ni­za­tions en­sure that Udaan stu­dents are just a stone’s throw away from In­dia’s top pho­tog­ra­phers, mod­els, art di­rec­tors, photo ed­i­tors and fu­ture clients ! Ex­pos­ing the stu­dents to an en­er­getic, artis­tic and a pro­fes­sional en­vi­ron­ment makes it easy to get in­tern­ships and other pro­fes­sional op­por­tu­ni­ties. Com­bined with the above, Udaan’s in­ten­sive tech­ni­cal and cre­ative train­ing pre­pares the stu­dents to meet global stan­dards and par­tic­i­pate in pro­fes­sional chal­lenges and com­pe­ti­tions. With sev­eral stu­dios, the largest be­ing around 2500 square feet (one of the largest in the city), the com­puter lab equipped with both Ap­ple and and high end Win­dows PCs, an ex­ten­sive li­brary with the choic­est of books in pho­tog­ra­phy and vis­ual arts, full HD 3D pro­jec­tors for re­views, a spa­cious cafe­te­ria, in­door sports fa­cil­i­ties and more, Udaan pro­vides an amaz­ing learn­ing en­vi­ron­ment to its stu­dents. Added to this, Udaan stu­dents get an hands-on ex­pe­ri­ence in pro­fes­sional pho­to­jour­nal­ism with the help of an in-house on­line news­pa­per, ‘Mum­bai Weekly’ , run by stu­dents and has a sub­stan­tial view­er­ship. Alumni of Udaan have gone to be­come cut­ting edge pro­fes­sion­als and are work­ing as full-time pho­tog­ra­phers in lead­ing news­pa­pers and mag­a­zines like ‘The Hin­dus­tan Times’, ‘The TImes of In­dia’, ‘DNA’, ‘In­dian Ex­press’ and ‘In­dia To­day’ along with an in­ter­na­tional news agency like Reuters. Two stu­dents from Udaan reached the fi­nal round of the Na­tional Ge­o­graphic Cover Shot that was tele­cast on the tele­vi­sion. It was an Udaan stu­dent who re­cently shot the cover pic­ture fot the pres­ti­gious Forbes Magazine - a dis­tinc­tion few pho­tog­ra­phers can boast off. Udaan com­bines tech­ni­cal in­no­va­tions and cre­ative ex­per­i­men­ta­tion. It aims to cre­ate new-age pho­tog­ra­phers, who will adapt to the ever-chang­ing sce­nario in pro­fes­sional pho­tog­ra­phy. It has trained over 2000 stu­dents and is on the right path to ful­fill its col­lec­tive dream.
