This is a cutting edge professional photography course written by some of the best working photographers in their field. The aim of the course is to provide you with the knowledge and skills required for a career as a professional photographer or as a keen hobbyist. This is an up-to-date and comprehensive course covering every aspect of photography.
The Professional Photography Course is delivered online, consisting of 12 comprehensive modules and 12 corresponding assignments. The course is designed to be self-paced. Normally you would expect to be dedicating on average about 4-6 hours per week for 24 weeks. However, many students take up to one year to complete their studies because of family or work commitments.
Students have the opportunity to delve deeper into specific areas of interest in photography by purchasing Advanced Modules. These are similar to short courses and are specially formulated materials to challenge motivated students to achieve more.
