A brief history of Leica Academy Athens
LEICA ACADEMY began to consolidate its operations in 1990 in collaboration with the LEICA AKADEMIE of Germany which provided us with technical support and with its 60 years of experience in the training of creative photography. The contribution of Mr. Wolfgang Muller the President of Leica Camera who encouraged us by offering his undivided assistance was of paramount importance to the creation of Leica Academy in Athens.
With the completion of our two years training program, graduates acquire a diploma with European recognition.
Leica Academy in Athens is committed to providing excellence in photographic training within a pleasant and stimulating environment.
Leica Academy at first successfully organized specialized seminars and workshops exclusively for Leica users and professional photographers. The list of requirements for our specialization led to the organization of a technical school with the aim of offering a training course responsive to the raising needs of the new technological era in the field of photography. Since then Leica Academy continues to operate with great success by providing modern professional training to young ambitious people who aspire to careers in the creative professional field of photography and offering special seminars and workshops to Leica users.
Leica Academy is located in the downtown Athens in a 5-floor building with fully organized modern classrooms, library, reading rooms and gallery, well-equipped studios and laboratories with high tech machinery.
