Diploma of Photography

About the course:

In this one-year intensive program, students learn a wide range of photography practice skills and techniques from fine art and photo documentation through to advertising and commercial photography. Photo-techniques from analogue to the latest digital imaging are covered. Small class sizes and one-to-one teaching allow students to rapidly forge their creative direction. The program is dedicated to image-makers and artists interested in developing their work, building their technical skills, and engaging in classes that help them to understand their work in relation to the images that shape our contemporary culture.

Students gain exhibition experience within the Latrobe College Gallery. The course enables students to go onto degree level study or to work immediately as a photographer. Students also have the opportunity to participate in accredited study trips to New York, the Venice Biennale or Berlin.

The CUA50915 Diploma of Photography & Photo Imaging can be completed in one year of full-time study. Study load is three to four days per week. Part-time study is available. Students interested in a mix of visual art and photography may choose the Diploma of Visual Art Photography stream.
