Since it was founded in 2006 the Atelier de Lisboa runs a photography school oriented toward authorial photographic work. We ensure that our students may broaden their vision of contemporary photography and of the history of photography, while also encouraging them to seek and claim their own autonomy as artists.

Our school has a modular structure, allowing each student to choose her/his own curricula according to her/his own technical or artistic interests. Every year we offer a different selection of project-oriented courses, theoretical studies and technical studies. All our courses stem from the artistic pratices and specializations of our teachers. Our students may expect their have their work closely followed by some of the best experts in Portugal in each of the areas of study available.
