Community

Our community is a place for visual storytellers.

The Academy

BECA is the first realized project for a private academy with photography education in the country, which partners with the world-famous EFTI – Centro Internacional de Fotografia y Cine in Madrid.

The Academy stands behind the belief that photography is not just a mechanism, a technology, or a tool, but a deep reading of the world around us and a visual language of each author.

We strive to be a unifier of the contemporary photographic community in Bulgaria and to provide new opportunities for training, realization and development of talented artists.

Last but not least, the Academy aims to be a source of inspiration!

Photography is not a talent, we are not born photographers… But we can learn! I believe that with the right guidance, anyone motivated enough can become an exceptional author.
