ORMS 6-MONTH PROGRAMME SCHOLARSHIP

The Orms Cape Town School of Photography offers both full-time and part-time photographic courses. We have more than fifteen years of experience. We have a history of being a specialised school where lecturers are passionate and committed to their students.

The 6-Month Programme is a great way to gain a huge amount of theoretical knowledge and practical experience, while still being able to juggle having a part-time job or just being busy with the other parts of your life. The programme focuses on technical photography skills, together with the all-important image management, post-production and image output. You will complete this programme as a competent photographer, equiped with your comprehensive portfolio and ready to face the challenges of the photorgaphic industry.

The scholarship includes all course fees but excludes printing and exhibition work. The scholarship students will receive a 40% discount at Orms Print. There is also an opportunity for students to do part-time work at the school to offset the printing cost. (In general, one hours work is enough to cover a months’ worth of printing necessary for the course).

If you have any questions regarding the scholarship, please email Lauren@ormsctsp.co.za
