More information about training with us

Thousands of practice photos, shoots with friends or family, hours of image retouching, training and report book assignments. Yes, the three years of training to become a photographer are packed with important topics. But why one? education? And why is this so important for us at Photogenika?

In our photo studios in Munich, customers are almost always from learned photographers or photographed by our trainees. Because we at Photogenika attach great importance to proper training. Therefore, you don't have to worry about having to photograph the customers yourself if you're not ready for it. With us, you can only approach the customer when there is nothing left to complain about.

Practice creates masters!

As in any professional training, one thing is very important: practice!
Many, many shootings for friends, family or work colleagues are part of the training of a photographer. Only then can the customer be served, advised and photographed professionally. However, our trainees at Photogenika not only learn camera technology, lighting and posing, we also care about friendly contact with our customers.

Photographer without training?

Yes, it is also fine. Many of our colleagues who have set up their own photography business are not following the traditional path
gone vocational training. For us from photogenics However, good vocational training is a matter of the heart.
You deal intensively with a wide variety of topics in photography for three years. Photographing aperture series, experimenting with exposure times, trying out light shapers in the studio and so much more cannot be learned overnight.

In good hands 

Trainees at Photogenika can look forward to professional training as a photographer (m/f/d) in Munich.
We are all experts and know exactly how we can help you. We look forward to you!

Your Photogenika team!
