What will I learn?

This diploma will give you a broad base of generalist photography and photo imaging knowledge and experience. Interweaving theory and practice, you will gain skills in using software, such as Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Lightroom and Adobe Premiere, and equipment, such as DSLR cameras, studio lighting and video rigs. You’ll explore both still-image and video formats and learn real workplace procedures, so you have the confidence to manage many types of photography projects from start to finish. With exercises grounded in industry practice and access to studio spaces, you can refine your skills and experiment with different techniques. Guided by lecturers who are professional photographers, you’ll identify and explore your own personal style.

Career opportunities

The work you produce will help build your professional portfolio to impress clients or potential employers. Combine your expertise as a photographer with your passions and interests to build a career in photography for advertising, documentary, wedding, food, portraits, fashion, architecture, or beauty, at an agency, in a studio or working for yourself.
