Student Testimonials:


“I really enjoyed the opportunity to work with a team in a simulation for a fashion shoot (as well as having the process modeled for us first). To be able to have a stylist and a make up artist, along with a knowledgeable experienced assistant in the studio was great.”
- Jamie, UK

"It’s the IFF team that made this whole process great. I have learned a lot, both in class and outside of class. This class is definitely life-changing for me!”
Angela, USA

"I feel like my photography improved more after two weeks with Piero than in the previous years in college and any other schools and courses. I loved the fashion teacher’s classes and her enthusiasm. She is definitely the best person for this subject."
- Gabor, Hungary

“I really enjoyed the whole course. We had enough time in our outdoor lessons to have alone time to wander around, while afterwards we were given tips and advice about the photos we took. I think the lesson is just perfect”
- Vincelle, Philippines

Central Location in Milan:

Photos of Istituto Italiano di Fotografia, MilanLocated close to the heart of Milan, Istituto Italiano di Fotografia is near the Brenta-Corvetto zone within an urban context characterized by schools, former factories and laboratories.

Not far from Porta Romana, and only 6 subway stops from Duomo, this location allows for proximity to the city center, while at the same time it is distant from traffic. Overlooking a small park, this location is ideal for a school, a hotbed of talent and factory of ideas.

Conceived for the world of fashion and design, our school building is in fact conceptually suitable to host a Photography School.

Home to Jacaranda Studios and originally part of a former industrial Pirelli building, the seat of IIF (which exists on two floors with a total of approximately 700 square meters) presents an iron structure of the early twentieth century, in which materials such as glass and wood give rise to an ideal backdrop for photography.
