Applied Photography


From the establishment in 2006 to 2020, the Applied and Advertising Photography Studio was led by prof. Miroslav Vojtěchovský, QEP and by MgA. Marian Beneš, Ph.D., MQEP. The studio has built up a prominent place at FAD over the years, and we meet our successful graduates in various fields of creative applied photography. Since the academic year 2020/2021, a new management of Jiří Thýn and Václav Kopecký has been running the studio.

The Applied and Advertising Photography Studio has ambitions to be a space which prepares students for independence, critical thinking and their own opinion in the field of photography in its various forms of today’s visually oriented society. It develops and motivates students to look for their distinctive expression and their own artistic expression for their future career.

The studio is a creative team that brings external stimuli to the mutual discussion conducted in a liberal environment. We treat the photography freely, however always with an emphasis on the craftsmanship and precision of the art form. We work not only on our own projects, we also use our skills and experience for custom work. We are convinced about the importance of working with the photography in an intermediate, technologically accurate and surprising form, so a graduate of the Applied and Advertising Photography Studio is successful in his/her profession. If we want to find an extraordinary solution, courage and experimentation are an essential part that we will always keenly await.
