Capture your future

    Online Photography Courses

    These online photography courses are suitable for beginners and intermediate Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop users allowing you to fit your learning around your lifestyle and busy schedule.

    Work at your own pace to earn your online photography certificate and interact with your teacher and other students as part of a shared online learning experience.

    The courses provide a combination of image editing examples and step by step projects from internationally recognised author and Adobe Ambassador Mark Galer delivered in one of the leading classroom interfaces, with Cyndi Briggs (Lightroom) and Mark Derbyshire (Photoshop), both experienced online educators.

    As a student of a PSC online photography course, our teachers are committed to assisting you in your learning throughout the course.

    Online Courses


    Q: “Is this online course a degree?"

    A: Photography is a creative medium that requires face to face learning to optimise the outcomes, both technically and visually. For this reason, PSC does not offer a photography degree online, nor any of its Diploma or Advanced Diploma programs. However, the two cleverly customised online courses that do achieve high levels of success at PSC are our Creative Photoshop Skills Course and our Lightroom Essentials Skills Course.
