Welcome to Getpix Photographic School!
FULL TIME - 6 MONTH - PART TIME – ONLINE - COURSES
Getpix offers a comprehensive range of photographic, digital manipulation, videography and web design courses: Commencing with Beginners Photography Courses for the complete novice, progressing through to On Location Photography Courses, and onto Speciality Courses where we go out to photograph on location. Specialty courses such as Architecture, Landscape, Wedding and Studio Photography Courses are often a natural progression.
Many of our students wanting to change careers return to make their way through a succession of courses.
Our success to rapid progress is achieved with small classes, with a maximum of 7 students per class. Our students learn the theory whilst physically applying this in practical situations in genres such as Portraiture Photography, Landscape Photography, Action Photography and After Dark Photography.
Whether you shoot digital or film, use a compact or Digital SLR camera, shoot with Canon, Sony, Nikon, Fuji, Pentax or Kodak; where light & exposure is concerned our highly professional and fun loving instructors are there to guide and assist you in taking better images. Our instructors are not just instructors, but photographers in their own capacity.
Our Digital Manipulation Courses covering Photoshop, Lightroom, InDesign and CorelDraw are practical, hands-on sessions starting right at the beginning. No one wants to read the manual, but everyone wants to understand and just as importantly master these in-depth digital manipulation packages. You have the time in class to ask the questions that everyone wants the answer to.
Our passion is photography, and without exception, all Getpix instructors are exceedingly patient and handpicked for the job.
Due to the constant requests from our students, we host monthly photographic outings and workshops. You have fun, in safe environments, meeting likeminded people and grow as a photographer. Check out our monthly articles and newsletters with information and images from previous photographic outings, workshops, students, photographic competitions, travel excursions and projects both local and abroad. Try joining us on our photographic walks - it’s a host of fun, you use your creativity and your instructor is always there to guide and assist.
Our Head Office is based in Benoni, Gauteng and opened in November 2007. Our 2nd office opened in Durbanville, Cape Town in February 2010 and our 3rd branch in Sandton, Johannesburg in March 2010. To date we have trained in excess of 1600 students and the numbers keep on growing!
