Academy for Photographic Excellence is a resource center for photography offering photography education and infra-structural facilities to all interested members of the community.
Apex was founded in 2006 with the concept of providing photography education to both, amateur and professional photographers. Since its inception, Apex has been offering various long-term& short-term courses in photography.
Located in Vasant Vihar , near PVR-Priya cinema, the academy has three floors consisting of spacious, air-conditioned classrooms, a 150 sqft fully equipped B&W darkroom, a digital lab equipped with 10 Mac stations, scanner & an Epson pro 4800 printer, a fully equipped lighting studio, a well stocked library and a 1200 sqft gallery space for exhibitions. We are also affiliated with Canon India and have a range of Canon equipment available for student’s use.
Starting with 2010, we have revised our approach and pedagogy to make it more congruent with the contemporary standards in the photography industry and education. In view of our new ideology, we are also in the process of revamping our facility and infrastructure.
Along with our new programs, we will also be making our B&W darkroom, lighting studio & the gallery space available to the community at very nominal charges.
Currently we are offering a 1 year diploma in professional photography, a 3 months duration intensive course, a 1 month duration evening course in foundation, and various weekend workshops in portraiture, fashion, advertizing , food, travel, and documentary photography.
We also offer one on one mentoring sessions on various topics.
