The world is moving towards a more creative spectrum and the world’s leading educators to economic research authorities, from the Harvard to the World Economic Forum, all agree that the top skills needed by future professionals include creativity. When working in various industries in the future, being creative and innovative will be considered one of the top traits that the business world will look for.

How does this translate to the talent market? What does this mean to young professionals who are creative, yet need to discover their place in the business? How will one acquire skills that will support work across industries and learn to think creatively?

This course focuses on photography, recognising the art form as one of the most diverse and demanded professions out there today. The course is designed to meet the needs of young students interested in experimenting with the lens and even possible careers in photography, amateur photographers and even young professionals looking to iron out their technical skills and aesthetics to step things up.

For those who are working in different industries this will be the perfect opportunity to touch on more creatively intense aspects and understand the basics of conceptualization, artistic expression, critical analysis and colour theory. The study experience that this course promises is to help young people focus their creative explorations with the camera for work and professional practice in the twenty first century.
