This useful and innovative course will nurture the skills, creativity, knowledge and ideas necessary to prepare you for a broad range of photography careers. You will be encouraged to think critically, take risks and explore your creative potential, with opportunities to experiment with analogue and digital photography, moving image, text or sound. 

You will receive creative opportunities fronted by us at Open Eye Gallery, one of the leading photographic institutes in the country. Our cutting-edge approach will engage you artistically to explore opportunities within community, education and public gallery sectors.
