In our Diploma of Photography and Photo Imaging, you’ll learn about the commercial, artistic and technical aspects of photography.
Endorsed by the Australian Institute of Professional Photography (AIPP), this course gives you practical hands-on training with a strong emphasis on innovation, presentation and technical proficiency in photography.
All of our teaching staff are practising industry professionals – so you’ll be learning from those who know what the market wants. (You could even be taught by a former NASA photographer, no joke!) Plus, it means a swathe of industry connections for you to reap the benefits of.
You could even deliver a real-world commercial photography project for a major shopping centre – all before you graduate. Imagine how that could look in your folio!
Gain exposure to a broad range of photography so you can find what you love and make it your own. You’ll study advertising, editorial, portraiture, wedding, documentary, fashion and fine art photography. Plus gain core skills in drone photography, videography, digital compositing and retouching, and design business practices so you can thrive in the digital age.
By the time you graduate, you’ll be able to pursue a career in photography and work in a number of professional capacities. You could work in creative agencies or marketing, as a freelancer, or at the helm of your own photography business.
The next intake for this course is March 2021.
Please note, there is no 2020 intake.

HOW RACHEL LANDED HER PHOTO ON THE COVER OF A NEW YORK MAGAZINE
Rachel Canale made a name for herself in the photography world when a photo she took for a uni assignment made the cover of New York’s PROMO Magazine (pictured).
“Once I saw the outcome I knew I had to submit the images to a magazine, they were the best I had done before and they were unique,” says Rachel.
