“Opened my mind to media in society, and improved my photographic knowledge through 10 very interesting lessons.” - Student Feedback
In the fast changing landscape of media into the digital age the photographic image has seen a resurgence in relevance. From DSLRs, mirrorless cameras to camera phones nearly everyone these days has a camera. It is a creative critical independent mind expressed in quality photography that makes certain images stand out over others.
During the ten weeks of this photojournalism course you will learn how to research, photograph, edit and create your own photo essay. We will be reviewing your progress each week in class and in the last week project everyone’s final work.
Developing your confidence whilst shooting for your photo essay we will cover important photojournalism theory including history; ethics; your rights; copyright; publishing outlets; fund raising and post processing/editing. During the course we will either have an industry/professional guest speaker and/or photograph a newsworthy event as an excursion.
If your passion is to tell a story and record history with your camera then this is your course.
