Certificate in Photography


Duration: 3 months 3 days in a week

Do you have a passion to observe things? Do you feel that you have a unique way of imagining and interpreting things around you? If capturing pictures to make the image extraordinary is your dream then photography is the right career for you. Photography, an art form that requires a good eye and aesthetic sense, backed by technical expertise has traditionally been viewed more as a hobby than a serious profession, but it does go beyond the act of simply “taking a picture”. Prospects include employment in portrait and commercial studios, newspapers, magazines, television companies, broadcast companies, advertising agencies, and much more. Blending art and aesthetic can prove to be an extremely satisfying, and at the same time, a lucrative career. The course is suited for anyone who wants to take photography as a hobby or a career choice.
