Studio Photography Course


We now offer a follow-up photographic training course on Studio photography. This course will provide the student with the necessary knowledge and skill to setup the equipment in a Photography Studio for different scenarios, either it be a portrait shoot , model shoot or for family photos.

The course consists of 10 Modules complete with applicable practical exercises, presented at our premises. We prefer to spread the lessons over 13 weeks in order to give the student enough time to practice and master the acquired techniques  from each lesson. A Practical assessment (Module 10) will be done at the conclusion of the course in order to test your competency.

Beskikbaar in Afrikaans.

The course is also available on DVD with email support for distance education. The Distance Education package consists out of two DVD's:

  • DVD 1 - Theoretical Lessons in Microsoft Word format

  • DVD 2 - Practical demonstrations of each module in the form of Video Clips.
