Welcome to Photocourse NZ, at Photospace, 37 Courtenay Place, Wellington New Zealand.
The modern digital camera is a creative visual tool par excellence. If you've recently splurged on a decent camera - a DSLR or a nice mirrorless camera - recovered from the post-purchase trauma and have shot some good-looking pics on Program mode, you may be left thinking, "This is cool but I want to find out what this thing can really do / get more creative with it / learn to photograph the world the way I see it."
Well, our photography courses & workshops will help you unravel the heady stuff, take full control of your camera and understand how all those technical functions aren't there just to bamboozle you - they have creative purposes.
We help you find your own balance between the technical and creative sides of photography, and show you how to develop your photographic eye so you can capture and create images that are visually strong, technically sound, impressive, personal, and uniquely your own expression.
We've been teaching photography here since 1999. Our beginning, intermediate and advanced photo courses and workshops are based on practical assignments and hands-on experience to help you understand both the aesthetic and technical sides of photography. And we even teach film-based photography and darkroom processes - developing and printing your own black and white photos!
Benefits of Photocourse NZ photography courses and workshops:
We will help you become a better photographer and get more enjoyment and fulfillment out of this popular and ever-advancing medium. Also, what we teach will give you a good platform for future full-time tertiary study and/or professional photography, and publishing and exhibiting your work. A number of our students have gone on to achieve success and fulfillment in various fields of photography, and some have gone on become full time professionals.
We've held group and solo photography exhibitions at Photospace Gallery as a result of our intermediate-advanced courses - PC3 and PC4 - and some of these students have gone on to have solo exhibitions at other galleries and venues.
Our courses are popular and group sizes are limited, so please book early or you may miss out. We are happy to discuss your requirements and offer advice before you book. Deposits are required to confirm places on all our courses and workshops.
