About the Level 3 Digital Photography Certificate

If you have an eye for photography and want to turn your hobby into an exciting and fulfilling career, the Level 3 Certificate in Digital Photography could be the key to your success. This online qualification has been designed to enhance your skills, maximise your creativity and give your photos the boost they need to advance from amateur to professional. All you need to get started is a good quality digital camera, access to image editing software and a quiet place for home study.

This distance learning course is made up of eight modules. These units cover everything from close-up shots and shutter speeds to landscape, portrait and wedding photography. The course should take approximately 128 hours to complete, but at learndirect we understand that life can get in the way of our courses. The good news is that our version of home learning is flexible, so you can work at your own pace at a time that is convenient for you.

Who should study this course?

This course has been designed with budding photographers in mind. Whether you are a complete novice, or you simply want to improve your existing skills, this certificate could take you to the next level. This qualification is also perfect for individuals looking to make a living from their photography.

Participants will not need any prior experience or qualifications to enrol on this course. All we ask is that you have a desire to learn, the motivation to study from home and a flourishing interest in the art and practices of photography.

What happens after the course?

By the end of the course, you will be able to effectively organise composition, adjust exposure and work using different levels of lighting. You will also be able to use digital image editing software to enhance your photos and make the most of your work.

If you enjoyed studying this course, you may consider going on to study at a higher level. There are a range of A-level, BTECH and foundation photography courses on offer across the UK. Those who wish could even go on to study photography at university level.

Alternatively, you could choose to enter employment right away. Professional photographers are often self-employed and once you start to build up a portfolio, you will find it easier to secure work. On completion of this course, you should have plenty of work to impress your potential clients. Potential photography based careers include:

  • Wedding photographer
  • News and magazine photographer
  • Photojournalist
