Labs Youth Career Program is designed for high school students who wish to gain hands-on experience in the creative industry and to learn about the commercial photography industry and professional production processes. During this program, selected students from our educational partners will attend workshops, field trips and lectures at Labs School, where they will gain an overview of the different roles within the industry and have the opportunity to experiment with and immerse themselves in these roles. From a photography assistant to a studio assistant, a lighting assistant to a digitech, this program introduces students to the ecosystem of the fashion and photography industry.
The curriculum for this program consists of classes in lighting, studio and photo assistance, production, equipment handling, working in a team, set etiquette, etc. Each class is a hands-on workshop that consists of skills training workshops and photoshoots. The ultimate goal of this program is to equip students with the fundamental skills for a real job in the photo and creative industry.
