As the world of photography evolves, so do our courses. Introduction to Photography is our cornerstone short course and the place to start your photographic journey.  Enjoy an updated, relevant educational experience to master the foundations of photography and explore your creative side under the guidance of an established photographer/lecturer.

We are also proud to offer this course perfectly adapted for online learning with small virtual classes and ample one-on-one time with your lecturer, but at a reduced rate! Learn more about this below.

 

In-Contact, On-Campus Option:

 

Our course caters to the enthusiastic beginner to intermediate level photographer and takes a varied approach to teach the fundamental concepts of Photography.

Through a combination of theory classes, online resources, supervised practice sessions, and assignments, students learn both the theory and practical application of photographic techniques to take stunning images. 

An introduction to visual literacy supplements the taught technical skills which, in turn, support the comprehensive lecturer feedback provided on submitted practical work. 

This combination helps the learning photographer to develop a sound understanding of the creative opportunities that accompany their evolving technical know-how.
