I knew very little about photography when I started the course, but as I worked through the modules, my knowledge and skills grew. This course has pushed me out of my comfort zone, and it was the best thing that could have happened to me.

Melbourne, VIC

I chose the Diploma over the Certificate as I was looking for a career change, and the Diploma offered more business content as well as photography content. Looking back now, it is amazing to see how far I have come.

I had already taken some photography courses before, but never anything so complete and so objective. Everything about photography has never been so demystified and at the same time with a clear, almost everyday focus.
