PHO­TOG­RA­PHY is a pop­u­lar hobby but learn­ing a few tech­ni­cal skills can turn your am­a­teur pic­tures from plain to pro­fes­sional.

Open Col­leges’ Cer­tifi­cate in Dig­i­tal Pho­tog­ra­phy is de­signed for emerg­ing pho­tog­ra­phers look­ing to turn a hobby into a busi­ness, says Antony Cirocco, pro­gram man­ager (pho­tog­ra­phy).

“We show them how to put the power of cre­ativ­ity in their hands to pro­duce class lead­ing art through their pho­tog­ra­phy,’’ he says.

“You need to be cre­ative, in tune with pro­gres­sive vis­ual arts and ex­cited by work­ing with other peo­ple.’’

Cirocco says free­lanc­ing is “where all the ac­tion is”.

“Stu­dents learn en­try level busi­ness skills and all about the world of free­lanc­ing and as they de­velop through the course, they will build a pro­fes­sional port­fo­lio and the nec­es­sary busi­ness ac­u­men to de­velop their own busi­ness, mov­ing into the pho­to­graphic in­dus­try with con­fi­dence,” Cirocco says.
