In Burgundy, 350 km from Paris, the students of the Professional Photography Programs have the unique possibility to visit the very place where the world’s first photo had been taken.

In the house of Nicéphore Niépce, a museum was created at the initiative of Speos, allowing them to discover the roots of their future profession.

A national heritage site preserved by Speos, the Niépce House Museum was awarded the prestigious label “Maison des Illustres” by the French Ministry of Culture in 2013.
