The Photography Course aims to train professionals with a glimpse into alternative reality and explosive potential: just click and you are made immortal in an instant. Professionals who communicate with photography are able to give life to images, ideas, concepts, information, stories and desires, transmitted at the exact moment when the gaze lands on the shot, without the need for any linguistic tools. The photographer is the narrator and interpreter of himself and of the projects that are commissioned.
With the advent of social media, photography is cutting out an increasingly important space within the web and therefore society. In fact, this course is ideal for those who want to study not only techniques but also post-production and the versatility of the product within a company. With this comes professional positions with career opportunities in advertising, publishing, the fashion world, food and events.
Australia is a demonstration of an extremely modern and technological country, looking for specialized roles. The professional photography industry is orientated at the digital world and demand is getting higher as it is influenced by the trends that have now spanned the country as the new lifestyle frontier and city of the future. For this reason, there has been a surge in recruitment since January 2017 but, to be sponsored as a photographer, one must have a degree in photography. This course is useful for understanding how this sector works in Australia and also for those who want to do a course that can be useful in a compatible field.
