Diploma of Photography and Digital Imaging

The Diploma of Photography and Digital Imaging focuses on your photographic development while refining your skills to either enter the photography industry or to prepare for further study. 

You will focus on digital workflow, photographic technique, colour management and studio lighting as well as taking a more creative approach to your imagery. While working on a range of industry-specific assignments, you also have the opportunity to produce a creative body of work reflecting your own style and vision. A further focus is working in the studio environment building on your lighting skills in preparation for industry.

Innovation is a key area to your photographic development in the course, and this is explored further. You also engage with how changing technologies influence the publishing of photographic imagery, including video and moving image content.



PSC is a community of experienced practitioners and educators with national and international profiles in the areas of documentary, photojournalism, art, commercial photography, photobook publishing, curation and photographic theory.
