Spacious facilities

Since its creation in 1985, Spéos has always had a remarkable equipment–space–student ratio, allowing the students to hone their skills under ideal conditions and favoring a maximum of practice time, essential element of the learning. The school offers 18 studio sets at Spéos Paris.

In 2017, the school also expanded considerably with the creation of Spéos L’Annexe, a vast new space located at 5 rue Bouvier in the 11th arrondissement (formerly Rainbow Color Photo Lab), right next to the historic headquarters of the school, rue Jules Vallès.

Top equipment

The school therefore has many spacious studios, all very well equipped: Phase One cameras, Foba, top-notch flashes. These studios are not only intended for teaching within the framework of the courses, but they are also available to students for their personal practice outside of class hours (except for students in the Magnum, first year and 5-month programs).

Students have access to Spéos’ modern, up-to-date and high-quality equipment. They learn about the different types of essential equipment and tools for a photographer and learn to use the 4×5 format camera. The school is equipped with Apple computers, Eizo calibrated screens, projectors, studio lights and equipment and a large selection of props to help stylize each photo-shoot.

Students also have the possibility to borrow photographic equipment on a daily basis: the school lends out quantities of flash kits, sound kits, video kits and telephoto lenses to work outdoors, evenings and weekends included.

Accessibility of premises

Spéos has developed a policy of welcoming and including people with disabilities. Odile Adrian is the Disability Officer for all the school’s services. She will welcome your request and endeavour to provide all the solutions and adaptations required to ensure that your course runs smoothly.

Access to the school for people with reduced mobility: the premises are accessible on the ground floor and are equipped with access ramps (on request). We recommend that you contact the secretariat before arriving at the school to ensure that you receive the best possible welcome and assistance.
