About the Institute

The Photography Institute offers you the most advanced and comprehensive online solution to learning available today. Online education has quickly become the preferred method of study for people around the world, who are looking for additional skills to enable them to make more money, start successful careers, turn a favourite interest into something more rewarding or accomplish a personal quest for self improvement.

Learn in your own time, in your own home and at your own pace.

Distance learning programs have been available from a variety of providers for some time, although it is the interaction and immediacy of the web, which has revolutionised modern study methodology.

Our commitment to providing the highest quality training program has resulted in unique teaching and student support systems, which produce unparalleled results. Our students consistently produce higher quality work and achieve higher levels of proficiency, in a shorter period of time, than other teaching methods can provide. The continuing achievements of our students and the professional recognition and external validation of our programs is a testimony to the high quality of our courses.

The Professional Photography Courses offer you, the most advanced alternative to a conventional classroom, for the training of photography. We offer the most thorough online courses in photography that are available anywhere in the world, using the very latest online learning techniques.

Our courses bring you everything you need to achieve the success you desire.

Although some conventional schools run photographic correspondence courses as a sideline, we have specialised in teaching photography solely online. The days of corresponding via video or audiotapes, CD's or DVD's or paperwork through the mail is over. Our methodology gives the student fast access to his or her tutor via a specially developed platform, enabling a student - teacher relationship that is as close to sharing a conventional classroom as possible.

Discover your true potential now by taking the next step - enrol today and take your photography to another level.

The Photography Institute, your partner to a better and brighter future.

I started the Certificate course as a relative beginner. The course has guided me through a clear pathway of learning and how to apply them practically.
