Whether you are interested in a traditional portrait type role, or are keen to work in a newer channel like social media, photography and images have never been more relevant.

The sky’s the limit with photography. This is your chance to get started in one of the oldest but also most exciting areas of creative training. You’ll get all the essentials of digital photography, from lighting and setting up a shoot all the way to post-production of your images. If you’re looking to get started in photography, or take the next steps towards further learning in digital photography, this is the course for you.

What you'll learn

We’ll kick things off by introducing the latest in digital photographic equipment, before showing how composition and design can bring your photography to life. Taking you through the various genres and their specialised approaches (including studio and location, food, sport, portrait, still life and product photography), you’ll see how lighting and shooting techniques differ by genre, and how choosing the right approach for each shot guarantees the best results.

Using post-production tools, you’ll learn different photo formats and how editing techniques can dramatically improve the visual impact of your photos, before we spend the last module building your own portfolio of work.
