What are photography courses? 

Perspectively, photography courses can be characterised as short academic lectures intended to inspire and build your confidence in the art by exposing you to the various technicalities, approaches, and methods of photography, allowing you to gain more experience and further improve your talent. 

Through regular workshops and group assignments, you will also be taught several key aspects of basic photography, such as how to: 

  • Properly use a digital camera, set-up its controls, and menu systems
  • Save and edit digital images on a computer
  • Take original and artistic photographs

Additionally, through structured Q&A’s with certified tutors and expert photographers, you will also get the opportunity to inquire and learn more about these techniques (and plenty of others) before trying them out for yourself!

Why take up a photography course? 

Whether you aspire to be the next Steven Meisel, want to pick up that expensive DSLR camera that you got for Christmas, or simply want to learn how to take better Instagram photos when on holiday, then these photography courses are picture-perfect for you! 

With great emphasis on fieldwork and experimentation, photography courses are packed full of fun and creativity. From group photography tours to individual assignments, these photography courses could potentially bring you a step closer to a new and exciting career, or even more importantly, intensify your passion for the art!

What will you learn throughout these photography courses?

Applying to one of these photography courses comes with heaps of benefits that will surely enhance your skills and interest in the field. Through detailed individual attention and guidance as well as plenty of hands-on experience, tutors will help you to build confidence and improve your work through constructive criticism and tips, allowing your skills to prosper and shape you into becoming a better photographer.

Moreover, you will also be given the task of undertaking a number of important projects which will continue to help improve your photo-taking skills, primarily through employing a more creative control over your camera (i.e. manual settings), rather than automatically letting it do all the work. Similarly, you will also be encouraged to get used to working with difficult conditions involving light and stability, which will also end up helping your confidence and abilities.

By the end of the course, you should therefore be able to successfully:

  • Utilise your camera’s settings and functions
  • Use all of the equipment needed for any type of photography session
  • Take appropriate photographs for given projects
  • Understand and use your camera’s settings to take high-quality manual photographs
  • Provide constructive feedback on your own as well as other peoples’ works
  • Edit and/or enhance photographs using tools such as Photoshop

When asked to give advice to people who are interested or planning on getting into photography, but are struggling to start, professional photographer and teacher Paul King asserted that:

"It depends if you want to do it as a hobby or as a profession. If you want to do it as a profession, you need to be able to handle the technical side extremely well and be confident with the business side of it. You also need to have an almost limitless creative way of thinking and the ability to reinvent yourself. To do it professionally you have to be really thick skinned, really tenacious, and prepared for really hard work. If you want to do it as a hobby, it’s much easier; just enjoy it and take a lot of pictures."
