Photography is a great hobby, as well as a great, yet challenging, career. If you want to take it seriously you also need some practical and theoretical knowledge, which is provided by the range of online and classroom-based photography courses available throughout Australia. Now Learning promotes photography courses for professionals and hobbyists, such as short courses in digital photography, composition and lighting, TAFE certificates in freelance photography and associate diplomas in photography.
Photography courses can be completed separately or they can be combined with other courses, like travel writing (for photojournalists) or starting a small business (for those who want to open photography studios). If you’re going to pursue a career as a freelance photographer then you might want to consider adding some bookkeeping and administration courses to your qualifications; you’ll need more than a flair for photographing weddings or models to succeed in the cut throat industry.
Find photography courses no matter where you are in Australia, from Brisbane, Melbourne, Sydney and Perth to all of the small cities in between.
