Light & Composition at a Glance

Started in 2008, through academic publications, the university currently getting enrollments of over thousands of students each semester around the world, including undergraduates, graduates, and working professionals, who want to earn a bachelor, master, or doctorate degree but for whom a traditional university education simply won’t do.

From the most prestigious photography award, where we rank world’s top 100 photographers to university education, today, it has a widely read online university press publications with over 3 million of subscriptions. It is in fact one of the very first universities, where individuals can truly learn in independent of time or place, and on individualized pacing to earn their degrees and credentials that are credible for both academic institutions and employers. Out of all the universities in the world, Google has ranked Light & Composition as #1 university for B.F.A. in Photojournalism and #5 for B.S. in Photography.

It is Here, That We Are Changing the History of Art and Photography to What It Should Be

Light & Composition began because we had a vision to create a platform that showcased a genuine work of art in its purest form; to highlight the true essence of photography and its artistic side. By the time we put out our very first publication, the photographic world was already on the verge of change, where one started to feel very different from the experience of earlier generations. Photography transitioned from an object of learning about the world we live in to becoming an object of desire for dealers, collectors, and Hedge Fund managers. This provides a new scale of values for assessing the worth of a photograph and a reason to fight for its ownership.

On the other side of this visual art medium there is a different world. Where the boom of numerous image hosting providers are taking place, along with the various social media networks, which give people on mass the opportunity to share on enormous scales, and make people feel like photographers. There has never been a medium so widely appreciated and so eagerly exploited like the medium of photography. Ethics have taken a back seat since and that’s when we realized how important is to establish a firm ground for the purist form of photography for university level, and introduced ourselves to portray the world through the lens, using purist perspectives through our publications and awards. Back then, we never thought that Light & Composition would become what it is today. It is here that we are changing the history of art and photography to what it should be for this and generations to come.
