Courses

Take stunning photos, become a professional photographer, or start your own photography business.


Our home study courses offer you the flexibility to complete your assignments when it is convenient for you. You can work at your own pace and spend as much or as little time on an assignment as you need.

Our Classroom-based courses cover the same material as home study, either every other Saturday or one evening a week. It’s up to you. Whatever option you choose you’ll receive the guidance and support of our expert tutors.

I absolutely recommend the course for anyone who's serious about progressing their interest or love for photography and wants to formalise what they're doing with education. Having the ability to work with tutors who are in the commercial world and getting feedback has been really constructive.

I would definitely recommend this course to everyone who's interested in photography. The course is a massive benefit to me because it allows me to have a flexible life. I can make an income and continue to work on my passion.

I chose this course because it gave me the freedom to learn at home and at my own speed. I had great communication with the tutors all the way through the assignments. I've noticed a big change in my photography and it feels really great to graduate.

It's very hands-on and practical. I've just grown as a photographer and have started taking bookings - I've done several weddings. Without the course I would definitely not have gone down the road that I did.

Shelley Costello
Graduate

I've learned so much and the pictures I'm taking now are so much better than what I've taken over the last 25 years - it's great. You can learn enough to start a career from it and my aim is to build a business.
