Photography serves as the alphabet for an international language that informs all types of global interaction. To study photography is not just about training as a photographer, but to learn to speak this new language with confidence and understanding, and to create a wealth of opportunities for yourself. With the unique language, you can tell a story and stir emotion in anyone, capture a moment that never will happen again, and discover the beauty in everything.
There are many benefits for photography as a career. There will always be jobs for professional photographers. It grants you the opportunity to be creative, to work with people, and to set your own work hours. Career opportunities include: commercial photographer, fashion photographer, magazine photographer, journalist and documentary photographer, creative agency photographer and many more.
The Advanced Certificate in Photography is designed to explore the development of the aesthetic vision of the photographer by artistic and technical growth, and enable the photographer to find his / her field of specialization.
