Cameras and photo-processing software continue to improve, making it seem easier to take professional-looking photos, and this is even more evident with the latest cellphones. "You press the button, we do the rest" was Kodak's tagline in 1888, and that vision has continued to develop with new technology and take over. Automated snaps are a good stepping-off point, but there is far, far more about photography that is open for you to explore.
Aside from the major question of what to photograph (something we address in depth in our intermediate-advanced level courses) there are these considerations:
Our photography courses and workshops will help you find your own balance between the technical and creative sides of photography - the science and the art - 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 vision and 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'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.
