When it comes to deciding on your photography school, you may be asking what are the best online photography courses to choose?
We know it’s a difficult decision. With so many online photography courses, from free YouTube videos to University courses, how do you decide which course to study?
Perhaps it’s best to start with where you want to end up. What is your ultimate goal? Do you want to start a new career or just learn photography for fun and personal development? Think about the routes you have tried before when developing your photography skills. Have you attempted to self-teach? How did that go?
Think about a photographer you admire and why you find them aspirational. What is it about their photographic portfolio that inspires you?
If this seems like a lot of questions, well, it is! After all, if you want to invest your time and money in a photography course, you need to make sure it’s right for you.
We think that having real Tutors who look at your photos and provide practical advice will get you to that endpoint far faster than anything else. That’s why we offer more Tutor Support than any other online photography course.
Let’s look at an example:
The Open University provides a short 10-week online photography course. There are no personal Tutors and the only feedback supplied to students is at the end when you submit some images for a short critique.
The Institute of Photography ‘s flagship Advanced Diploma in Photography course offers the following:
- Two hours of live Tutor chat weekly.
- Eighteen marked assignments with personal and bespoke feedback on each assignment, including a portfolio Final Assignment.
- The facility to email your Tutor at any time for help and advice on both the course work and any other photography questions that occur.
- Private tutor chats can be set up if you are finding an assignment particularly tricky.
- An unlimited timescale for Tutor help. Even when you finish the course, you can still come back to us for help.
