Graduates often establish their own business in areas such as portraiture, advertising, architecture, fashion and events photography. Some also find employment as assistants, still- and moving-image editors and production managers for established businesses.

You'll explore a broad overview of the basics of digital photography, including equipment, software, and practical uses. We'll discuss different types of digital cameras, from phones and tablets to digital SLRs, all of which offer a wide array of photographic options. We'll also help you decide what type of equipment fits your needs and provide you with hands-on exercises that let you explore the areas that interest you.

You'll start out by learning about the many features and controls of your DSLR and look at the lenses you need for the kind of photography you enjoy. Next, we'll explore exposure controls. You'll learn about metering, exposure compensation, managing aperture, shutter speed, and ISO. You'll find out how to use these features to get the right exposure for every shot.

We'll then turn our attention to flash photography, managing camera controls, photo files, and even working in manual mode. With these skills, you'll be able to take your photography to the next level. Finally, the course explores high dynamic range photos and how to master those difficult and tricky exposure situations.

Through the expertise of its skilled teachers, who are talented professional photographers themselves, this full-time, tuition-free, two-year program equips its students with valuable knowledge in countless areas of photography. Bonus: As these are evening courses, you can still maintain your job while pursuing your studies.

Dawson's Commercial Photography Program allows you to discover your own area of expertise by exploring a variety of aspects such as advertising and editorial illustration, portraiture, catalogue photography, architectural photography, fashion photography, and industrial photography. Post-production techniques will help you bring your images to a truly professional level.

Next to the high-speed handpiece, the digital SLR camera could be considered one of the most productive pieces of equipment in a dental office. The goal of this course is to enable the general dentist to implement high-quality digital photography into their practice. Stop wasting time on clever analogies to help patients understand their condition and simply take a picture. A patient cannot want what they cannot see, and a simple photo could open the floodgates of potential treatment. But why is it so often underutilized? Do you struggle with achieving a consistent standardized photo? If so, this course is designed to ease some of those frustrations while bringing back enjoyment in taking a good photo and gaining better production. High quality digital dental photography will help increase case acceptance, promote good laboratory communication and develop your esthetic dentistry portfolio.

Los Angeles based, Dawson studied photography at Brooks Institute and found himself shooting for the music and entertainment industries after a short stint as an assistant. One of his passions had been landscapes, and, when he started to show this work to potential clients, they suggested these landscapes would make very convincing backdrops for cars shot on the road. So in 2007, Dawson began shooting cars for editorial and advertising clients, while using his continually growing library of backdrops to lend these shots a defining atmosphere.

Séan learned photography formally; however, unlike most photographers, he developed his craft in order to fulfill his visual ideas, not as an accompanying aspect of learning photographic technique. He began taking photos at seven years old with a borrowed family camera. At nine, he started using a 110mm disposable camera, but was quickly dissatisfied with his images, which he felt were washed out. This was especially problematic since, even at that early age, Séan was interested in the visual quality of black skin. At ten, this aspiration for an improved image led to the purchase of better equipment and the desire to learn darkroom technique so as to control the process.

At the RPS, we want everyone to enjoy photography irrespective of your age or technical ability. Whether you use a smartphone camera, or have an arsenal of sophisticated equipment, we can help you develop your practical and creative photography skills.

We start by meeting a very talented and exciting photographer, Lucinda Grange, an award-winning adventure photographer, currently based between New York City, Zurich and North-East England.

The resulting incredible imagery inspires us to think outside the box when it comes to our images, and we can't wait for you to hear from her.
