I had been a hobbyist for 6 years and finally decided to professionally enter the field of Visual Arts but first I needed an understanding of the technical aspects involved, industry infrastructure basics, along with a touch of history of photography, to build a strong foundation on which to build my career. So I set out towards finding myself a reputable Institute which was one daunting task!
In this day in age, the academic/vocational education market is flooded with photography courses of all sorts, and managing to find an affordable, deeply informative and thoroughly professional Diploma Program was no easy task. However, the solution came, to me, in form of The Photography Institute; with help of a highly knowledgeable & extremely supportive tutor, I was able to embark upon my journey towards becoming a Professional in the field of Photography & Post Production. I couldn't have been happier and more satisfied with my choice in the program.
Not only have I gained skills & confidence with every module that I passed, I am already starting to comprehend my strengths better and am able to take informed decisions in what direction to move forward and what niche best suits my style and skill set.
A great Chinese Philosopher Lao Tzu said "The Journey of a thousand miles begins with one step" and years from now when I look back I shall be ever grateful and proud that The Photography Institute was my stepping stone to realizing one of my life's fondest desires...to share a part of me with the world and build a career for myself doing what I love - Photography! Thank you PI.@fatimaclicks
As I didn't have much time to sit down in a class to listen to lectures, this course really helped me out with that. In the beginning, I didn't think I could benefit much from an online course. But the interaction between me and the tutor really made a difference. It was easy to communicate with my tutor, not only module's related, but photography as a whole.
My friends and family said they can really see me grow as a photographer since taking this course. I'm now thinking of how to market myself, rather then just taking photos.
For those of you who really love photography and want to learn more, but have limited time, this course will work for you. Trust me, it did work for me. So go ahead, sign up, you will look at photography in a totally new angle, or should I say, you will look at light in a new way. As they said, photography, is painting with lights.
I would really like to thank everyone who made this course possible.
A fun and rewarding course!
The Photography institute provided me with the knowledge and understanding to be confident in my photographic career.
This course is a fantastic way to learn from the basics of photography all the way to the business side of photography. I found it to be a rewarding challenge, which paid off greatly for me.
Having your own personal tutor answer any questions or concerns was very helpful. Each module and assignment gave me plenty of insight into the topic at hand and although often challenging I didn't find any of the modules to be impossible.
One of the major benefits from this course was the increase in work I received due to what I had learnt.
Whether you are looking to start a photographic career, or just wanting to take up a new hobby, The Photography Institute in my opinion, and through my own personal experience, would have to be one of the best choices you could make.
Thank you to The Photography Institute and my tutor for a great learning experience.
The Photography Institute's Online Professional Photography Course has been an immense challenge and inspiration to me.
I have seen my photography skills improve dramatically over the duration of the course along with my confidence and knowledge too.
I thoroughly enjoyed the personal tone of each of the modules and the comprehensive assignments - although challenging, they were always applicable. The criticism and feedback from the tutors was fair and honest and I learned just as much from them as I did the modules throughout.
It's a well rounded and informative course that is very enjoyable. The Professional Photography Course has turned a passion of mine into a skill for my new career.
I love art and creativity, and this course has provided me with a well-planned steer toward becoming a better photographer. I would like to thank George for sharing his professional knowledge and the helpful support team for making this journey such a pleasant learning experience.
The course has a myriad of articles and engaging activities from understanding exposure, creative techniques for composing different types of photos, to interesting assignments that put what you learn into practice. Speaking from experience, things just get better each step of the way with the culmination of earning the Diploma.
On top of that, assignment feedback provided by George has been both insightful (based on his personal experience) and encouraging. The thing I find that sets this course apart from the rest, is the personal mentorship along the way and the genuineness with which everyone at PI brings demonstrates.
Thank you once again to the team at PI for a job well done and making this so worthwhile. I highly recommend this course to any keen photographer.
This is a course that I would strongly recommend to anyone and everyone who likes to capture moments in their lives through a lens.
I like photography as a hobby and even after searching for hours for more information on the internet about photography, I found there were no proper guidelines and the information was very confusing. After I took up this course I was suddenly back on track, everything was covered comprehensively in this course.
My tutor was fast in response and very professional in his guidance, it was great to work with an industry professional.
Thank you PI and all the staff who have helped me achieve my goals.
The Photography Institute was a god send to me. After admiring photography for many years it was great to find a course you could do online at your own pace and with no pressure.
Being in full time work, it would have been hard for me to do a course in photography at college, so when I found this course I grabbed the opportunity with both hands.
The personal tutors are a great help right from the start, recommending books and giving you advice and being there throughout the course to help you.
The modules are very in depth and beneficial covering a whole range of different areas in photography. The assignments are marked honestly and the praise and constructive criticism received helps you fine tune your work. The final assignments really help you find the field of photography you would like to pursue.
Before this course my knowledge of photography was very basic. Now I'm taking shots that are improving all the time and it's all backed up by a vast amount of knowledge I have learnt from this course.
I have friends who spent two years at college doing photography courses and they are amazed at what I learnt in the space of these twelve modules.
This course is great for anyone wanting to learn about photography whether it be just as a hobby, freelance or professional it helps lay a solid foundation to the fantastic rewarding world of photography.
I would recommend The Photography Institute to anyone. It was certainly one of the greatest things I've ever done.
