Course Overview

A brilliant way to expose yourself to art is photography. When it comes to technical precision, it is one of the forms of art that requires the least amount of practice to become a beginner, while endless practice for perfection is like other forms of art. Besides, when elements of imagination come in, every amount of time and effort and contribution to various pictures interpret various wonders.

Alpha Academy brings the Online Photography Course for you to make your path ease. This course is filled with tips and guidance to fuel your capabilities in photography and become an expert photographer who can take great images with any camera. Find out how to connect with your inner imagination and the eyes of the photographer in the most creative way through stills. To sign up, you don’t need any related experience or preparation to engage in photography. You should clearly and actively stick to the instructions, and you will be trained in no time to become a master photographer.

No particular entry requirements for this course, existing practitioners or beginners are cordially welcomed to enrol in this course. It can be learned from any computer with an internet connection on a part-time or full-time basis.

Course Sneak Peeks

Career Path

After completion, you will get a recognised certificate of achievement which you can use as proof of your new skills. Also, you will be able to utilise the functions and features of photography confidently. However, you can opt for a stable, salaried position, or enjoy more autonomy as an independent contractor which means freelancing.


You will be asked to sit a multiple-choice online exam at the end of the course. Your evaluation will be checked instantly and automatically. The course will allow you to know whether you have been successful or not in no time. You will be able to order an Accredited Certificate of Achievement at an extra cost of £19 for a PDF copy and £29 for an initial print copy sent to you by post or £39 for both after you have completed the final test.
