We like how the course spans over seven weeks, which gives you enough time to process and practice all that you’ve learnt. We also like how useful acquiring photographic skills is - what you learn in class you can apply in the real world - as a hobby or as a vocation. 
We love how you learn about the technical aspects and explore the creative side of photography - a perfectly exposed image is still a bad image if composition is not considered.
Great for those who like to capture the daily happenings of life through photographs.

The Details
We live in a digital age where one can’t escape the mass of images circulating social media platforms. 
Images are everywhere you look. They’re a necessary accompaniment to any new’s article, and, on their own, photographs are worth a thousand words. We also use them to record every minute of our lives - our glorious holidays, those momentous and unforgettable memories, even documenting what we had for lunch that day (a cheese and pickle sandwich if anyone’s interested). They also promote awareness and bare the stark truth about the world's problems, while also exposing the diverse natural beauty of our universe. 
That being said, there are so many ‘wannabe’ photographers out and the truth of the matter is that you can’t just use a filter on Instagram and call yourself a professional.
If you love taking photographs but are more often than not disappointed by the end result  - it’s over exposed, the flash makes the image lack depth, it’s blurry, the quality could be better - then we suggest that you take a 7 week photography course to refine your raw talents. 
Global Photographic are offering a 7 week basic and intermediate photographic course. 
The course comprises of five 4 hour tutorials, one 4 hour practical and one assessment. During this time, you’ll cover a wide range of topics that’ll help you perfect your photography.
