WHAT WILL THIS COURSE DO FOR YOU?
This course is different to many others, because it goes well beyond just teaching you to take photographs. It is an "experiential based" learning program; designed to get you involved with the photography industry as you study. The industry is changing faster than ever; and will continue to change; and for ongoing success you need to become "connected" and remain "connected", so that you see and adapt to recent changes, and ongoing changes as your career moves forward.
This course would be close to two years of full time study at most
colleges; however, under our system you may fast track it or take it
slow. Some may complete it in one year, while others may take many years to finish the course.
To give yourself the best chance of success in this industry, a
substantial course (around 1500 hrs or more) together with experience,
is what is needed.
