Student Spotlight

  • This course has honestly changed my life. I gained not only experience but also confidence in my photography to take the huge leap of leaving my job and starting out on my own as a professional photographer . THANK YOU IOP!

    Johan George Carinus Professional Diploma in Photography
  • I enjoyed how the course takes you from a total beginner right through all the photography skills. Feedback throughout the course was great, and it really helped develop my skills further, as only following the feedback when I went back and looked at the photograph could I see little errors, which helps development.

    David McGuire Professional Diploma in Photography
  • Very proud to be and will remain within the IOP family. This learning experience is unique and I will continue to be part of the IOP Institute to keep learning and reaching new levels into my journey of photography. I say this loud and proud from the heart…..NO WORDS CAN THANK IOP ENOUGH FOR THE GUIDANCE AND LEARNING EXPERIENCE!

    Vince Piscopo Professional Diploma in Photography
  • Completing the Diploma in Photography course has given me so much knowledge of all aspects of making photographs. The tutor feedback was comprehensive, constructive and very useful for continued improvement. The course has made me think about why I take photographs and to care about my composition and end product. A great course. Thank you.

    Claire Hammond Professional Diploma in Photography
  • Absolutely fantastic courses and tutors. Will definitely be doing more courses with this amazing team. My passion for photography while doing the Diploma course has soared through the roof, everytime I take a photo I see a huge improvement and that's because of my tutor's advice and help when I was confused about a unit. So I recommend everyone to do a course, it's well worth the money.

    Samantha Pattison Professional Diploma in Photography
  • Very good overall course, covering essentials like cameras, lenses, technique, exposure, Lightroom, composition, aperture priority, etc, etc. 20 or so modules, and with each one you can submit images for tutor feedback, which is always thoughtful and respectful. Towards the end of your course there are three or four compulsory image submissions - portrait, landscape, etc. And for the Final Submission you are required to supply three images, Portrait, Landscape, and Free Choice. So, a good balance between taught modules and tutor feedback. Recommended.
