    Photography Course

    Has anyone here done a Photography Course with a qualification at the end of it?

    I am interested in doing one if anyone can suggest any to me.

    It is not for career purposes, just to give me something to do and for my own satisfaction.

    Re: Photography Course

    I did some one day courses,(each course lasted 10 weeks) but it was just to learn photoshop so not really photographic skills.
    It also came with tests and an exam at the end of each course gaining a Qualification at the end.

    I really enjoyed all the courses i did and learned lots along the way so i would recommend them if you have the time,these things tend to push you out of your comfort zone which is always a good thing

      Not sure about qualification at the end but check with the local university / college as they sometimes do short courses. Dee did a 10 week, one evening a week course at the beginning of the year

        I have not done a course myself but I know people who have. They tend to fall into two forms so perhaps you need to decide which type would suit you best.
        The two types are :- course dedicated to understanding and improving camera skills or image image processing. The other type is the academic course which focuses on the political, scientific, artistic and social outcomes from photography and its possible influence.

          I am interested in a post processing course i.e Photoshop. I have looked at the courses (day or evening) around me here and cannot find one that fits the bill. I am not very interested in an online or video course but one where I can sit in with others.

            Thank you for your replies.

            A bit more info:

            I have already done a Photoshop course at my local school.

            I was thinking about the SPI Diploma but the website at http://www.amateurphotographer.co.uk/school-photographic-imaging says 'The School of Photographic Imaging (SPI) has now closed.'

            I am interested in doing something online.

                We (my wife and I) did BTEC Digital Photography (Level 1) at the local college - we learned a lot and made some friends. We'd both like to do more, but time / funds restrict that.

                  Not a course with qualifications at the end, but may be of interest to some
