We know our online photography courses are great.  Our students think so too!  Here is what they are saying…..

“What an enjoyable experience i had for the past 11 months. This diploma course kept me thinking about what sort of photographer i wanted to become. The assignments are great and at times were challenging but rewarding as well. Thanks to my tutor Deb, who would return my emails mostly on the same day. Very productive course, would recommend to amateur photographers who want to move to the next level. Thanks.”

Geoff Marchant


“I would highly recommend the course to anyone who wants to improve their photography skills and start to produce really professional images. It’s a course that enables a learner to work along at their own pace without pressure of assignment deadlines. This suits the part time or mature student.”

John Bradbury


“I finished my Diploma of Digital Photography Course with Online Camera Ed, and have taken the “leap of faith” and am now working as a photographer. I have done a few commercial jobs and have also sold some of my images. It is the best feeling, doing what I love and actually getting paid for it. It is early days yet, but it just feels so right. A big thank you to my tutor, Deb. I could not have done this without you. For anyone considering doing a photography course, Online Camera Ed is a great choice. Everything from the course modules to the video tutorials make learning easy. Someone is always there to help you, or in my case, push me a little harder or show me another way of doing things. I will miss you!”

Alex Palmer


“I knew very little about the technical side of photography. I just knew it was something I wanted to do. As I had not studied for a long time, I must admit to being a little nervous about signing up. After working through the first module, I knew I had made a good decision.

The online learning worked brilliantly with my busy lifestyle, and the assistance, guidance and support I received was beyond my expectations. I have recently graduated the course, and the improvement in my photography is unbelievable. Thank you Online Camera Ed. It has been an amazing journey, and one I will cherish.”

Learn Photography the easy way with our online photography courses. They are amazing. You can work how, when and where it suits you, with no timetables, no schedules and no deadlines. You are in control. There are no classrooms, and you are not locked into endless sessions on your computer. As you learn photography theory, you also take it outside with lots of exercises, tasks and practical photography sessions to bring what you are learning to life.  With Online Camera Ed, you can tailor your learning to suit your interests and apply the photography skills you are learning to subjects you choose.  Combine your learning with family outings to interesting locations, dinners with friends, bush walking adventures, gardening, sports and other fun activities.  Start your journey into the world of digital photography today.

Photography education is our business and that is exclusively all we do.  Whoever you choose to study with please go with a specialist provider of photography education.  This is so important. We have a number of current and past students who have previously enrolled with establishments that teach everything from bricklaying to popular mechanics as well as photography and these students all tell us how they felt let down by these places.  Photography is an area that requires full devotion from the student plus their tutor and the education provider and you shouldn’t accept anything less.  We don’t deliver courses by pre-recorded video with poor student to teacher interaction but rather we teach you and we set exercises within each learning module to help you consolidate what you are learning and this in turn prepares you for the assessment at the end of each module.  At the end of your course and with all competencies achieved we award you with either your official Diploma or Certificate both of which contain our seal plus we also supply you a full course transcript which lists the things you have studied and the marks achieved. These things actually mean something and are much greater value than a Certificate of Completion which is virtually useless. Look for these things with any provider you are contemplating studying with.

At Online Camera Ed no-one is left behind.   So please consider these things when you choose your course and provider and we wish you all the best in your photography education.

So to help you out please read on.


We offer two different online digital photography courses.

Certificate of Digital Photography Course


– A “keeping it simple” course you can do with any camera and learn how to take better images.  We give you a basic overview of how cameras work, keeping the technical jargon to a minimum. This course can be done with any type of camera.  Starting with a basic understanding of the digital image, we focus on working with light and colour, looking at style and perspective, common problems to avoid and composition tips you can use to make a huge improvement in your images.  Of course, no digital photography course would be complete without a session on Adobe Photoshop. FIND OUT MORE….

Diploma of Digital Photography Course

12 MODULES – 10 Core modules + 2 Electives …. Allowing you to choose what you study.

– An in-depth DSLR camera course that gets your camera out of program mode.  Learn how to think like a professional photographer and take creative control of your images. From digital photography basics right through to advanced techniques used by professional photographers, this course has it covered.  We will have you freezing the action, blurring the movement and controlling the depth of field in your images before you have even finished Module 2.  Photography is “painting with light”, so you need to understand light and colour and learn how to use each to your advantage.  Add in a little training in style and composition and you are ready to take a close look at some of the photography specialties.  We start with the “people-free” arenas including travel photography, landscape photography, nature photography, food photography, architectural photography, night photography, urban photography and macro photography.  By this stage, you will be flying, ready to take out your people skills and tackle the studio, portrait photography, sports photography, fashion photography, wedding photography, real estate photography, photojournalism, HDR images and so on.  Of course, no online photography course would be complete without a session on Adobe Photoshop.  Master the “must have” photography skills.  As your journey unfolds, you will have started to put together your portfolio and will be developing a style and confidence that is shining through in your images.   FIND OUT MORE…
