6 MONTH PROGRAMME
No qualification is required to do any of the courses. All the courses are part time courses and are designed for the enthusiast and hobbyist photographer.
No photographic experience is required to do the following courses:
To do any of the advanced photographic courses you first need to complete the Fundamentals of Digital Photography course. If you feel you are proficient in photography and would like to move on to an advanced course without doing the Fundamentals course, then please contact us on 086 11 PHOTO or email@example.com for advice.
To do the "Photoshop - Advanced Elements" or "Photoshop - Advanced Techniques CS" course you first need to complete the Photoshop - The Essentials course.
If you have a Compact Digital Camera then we recommend you begin with the “Discover Digital Photography” course.
This part time photography course is designed for complete novices and will give you a better understanding of your camera and the world of photography. You will learn how to capture amazing photographs using your digital camera.

If you have a Digital SLR camera then we recommend you begin with the Fundamentals of Digital Photography course.
The Fundamental of Digital Photography course is a part time 5 week course designed to teach you all the basic principles of photography. These will help you take full control of your camera and help you make the correct choices to immediately improve your photography. You will be required to complete assignments on the course and go on an early Sunday morning outing after Lesson 4.
We have recently launched the "Fundamentals Express" course, which is a condensed 3 week version of this course.

To do the “Discover Digital Photography” course you need either a Compact Digital Camera or a Digital SLR camera.
The courses are all part time and run once a week for 1 to 5 weeks, depending on the course. Most of the courses have a high practical ingredient, where you will be required to complete assignments in your own time. Some of the courses have a weekend outing, usually on a Sunday - please check those details on the relevant course information pages.
On all the courses you will be provided with comprehensive, full colour course notes, which support what is taught in class.

You do receive a certificate at the end of the course, but please note that this is a certificate of attendance and completion of the practical assignments. It is not a formal qualification.
We unfortunately do not offer private courses for individuals. Due to the practical nature of the courses, we have found that your learning experience is far better when you are in a group of like-minded people. A big part of your learning curve is to see and experience what the other students have done.
