This is a cutting edge professional photography course written and directed 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 and consists of 12 modules and 12 interactive assignments. The normal time required to complete the course is 24 weeks, although we will allow you up to 12 months if required. During this time you will be educated in all aspects of photography by George Seper; one of the top freelance photographers around. His vast wealth of accumulated knowledge is provided to you, along with the ways to apply this knowledge to the areas of photography that most interest you.
The business of photography is not just about award winning images. It can also be about the right picture at the right time. Newspapers, magazines and websites worldwide are constantly on the lookout for new and interesting material. The opportunities are enormous and always growing.
All the learning is done online in that when you enrol you receive a username and password, which enables you to log onto our secure student site. From there you can download your first module, which you could liken to your textbook as it contains all the information you will need to complete assignment one. Each module is approximately 60 pages in length and is full of detailed technical information delivered in a friendly, conversational manner that is easy to understand. The concepts are further explained by way of diagrams, images and examples.
Once you have completed your assignment (some are just theoretical, but the majority of assignments combine both theory and fun practical tasks) you then upload it onto our site for your tutor to mark. The tutors will give you a grade (out of 10) and a comprehensive evaluation of your work and ideas and help nurture and improve your skills each step of the way.
What makes The Photography Institute so unique is that throughout our course you have access to the safety net and guidance of the team here at Student Support, who you can contact 24/7. It is not simply a case of giving you a textbook and off you go - far from it.
You also have direct contact with your personal tutor who guides you closely through each step of the course, offering personalised and specific constructive criticism on your submitted work. If you ever have any questions in relation to your course or assignments, all you need to do is send your tutor a quick message and they will reply with an answer as soon as they can.
With this close tutor mentorship, you will feel like your tutor is in the same room as you, and all this can be achieved from the comfort of your own home. That is the beauty of our course, you can study when you like and at your own pace.
The tutors who work for us are not just teachers, but the best working professionals in their field. By drawing on their knowledge you will gain an edge that will help you realise your true potential.
We have a Facebook Group that we have exclusively designed for our students. This group contains thousands of our students from across the globe interacting with each other on all topics covered by our course. It provides a great opportunity for students to meet fellow students from all over the world, ask questions, share knowledge and experience, upload work, give and receive feedback, make new friends and talk everything photography!
The course is a good read with a balance of technology, essential techniques, foundational concepts and art. You’ll absorb it as if chatting with a knowledgeable friend. Be prepared for your tutor’s honest, articulate and constructive comments. The Facebook Group is also a great way to connect with 1000s of fellow students globally.
