The Digital 2 photography course in Melbourne and the Yarra Valley has been designed to impart a high level of proficiency to the serious amateur photographer or to someone considering a career in photography. It assumes a basic proficiency in digital camera handling and technical knowledge. Ideally you will have completed our Digital 1 course or be able to demonstrate a similar level of competency. You will be given a number of assignments to complete on the course which will be assessed via email. The group will be limited to a maximum of 10 people for a highly personalised training experience.

This course teaches you a set of skills to shoot at a professional level. You will develop your expertise in shooting catalogue, magazine and book style cameo and macro images, quality studio and outdoor portraiture and fine arts photography. Set assignments will teach you how to shoot under pressure in diverse circumstances. Although the key focus on this course is in upgrading your photographic technical and artistic skills, we also profile various camera systems to suit your individual needs. Your instructors are professional commercial, travel and wedding photographers allowing you to draw upon their depth of knowledge.

A series of workshops will cover landscapes, portraits on the land, wine and food photography, photo reportage, action, still life and more. places visited include Chandon Estate, Yarra Valley dairy, Coldstream, Train Traks, Yering Station, Yarra Glen and a few others!

terms & conditions

Paying for your course in full upon booking will confirm your attendance. Places are limited on all courses.

We reserve the right to cancel and reschedule any course, due to inadequate enrolment bad weather, instructor illness, or an 'act of God'. We also reserve the right to cancel any course if there is insufficient demand, especially if it means that our costs would be higher than our income. Please therefore do not leave it until the last few weeks if you are interested in a particular date, as you may find that it has been cancelled. As our costs for each training event remain the same no matter how many delegates attend, like any pre-booked tickets for the theatre, concert, flights etc, we are unable to give a full refund in the event of non-attendance, regardless of the circumstances. If withdrawal occurs within the 14 days before the course starts we will try to put you on an alternative date if places are available. Please note that we cannot be liable for any other costs incurred by yourself, so please check with us before booking any non-refundable accommodation or transport.
