Course Overview

Turn your interest in photography into a profession by learning the fundamentals of how to get started in the industry. Through our photography course you’ll start by learning about the basic equipment you’ll need, as well as the different types of cameras and lenses. Then you’ll explore photography techniques and how to use lighting, colour, composition and design through to post production photography.

During our photography course you will have hands on assignments, completing theory-based training and going out into the real world to build your own portfolio in the field of your choice (fashion nature and wildlife, events, real estate, weddings, travel, etc). Starting your portfolio while studying will help at the end of your course when you’re either building your own photography business or applying for photographer jobs.

If you’re a hobby photographer and want to enhance your skills or looking to build your own business, this online photography course will not only give you the skills and knowledge to get started but the basic equipment too… we provide students with a DSLR Canon 3000D camera!

So if you don’t have a DSLR camera don’t let that deter you from signing up for the course because you’ll get one!
