The school for creative and ambitious students
ETPA trains the talents of tomorrow
School of photography and video game professions
ETPA is a pioneer art school in the field of image training. Since 1974, it has been a higher education institution specialising in the teaching of photography and video games.
School of Photography
Passion is the starting point and pugnacity the key word. From the moment they arrive until the end of their course, students evolve in an environment where determination, rigour and the need to express themselves prevail over everything else.
The student then opens up to the abundance of research, digs deep within himself while drawing on his own artistic and cultural references, which make him a singular ¨artistic¨ being. The students evolve in a structure that plays an active role in this process,
by remaining aware of one's environment and the realities of professional life. To grow, to assert one's choices, to blossom, to define one's art and to define oneself.
This is what students strive for when they enter etpa and what they achieve over the years. They realise that talent is expressed through hard work and perseverance.
