Online photography courses in UK

  1. Hi
    Has anyone heard of the photography course 'Diploma in Professional Photography' by the Blackford Centre?
    I am not sure whether to enrol for this one as no one (even some well known organisations) seems to have heard of it.
    I am a DSLR user for just over a year now and picking up so fast that I only used my Canon 550D for one year before upgrading to a Canon 7D.
    If the Blackford Centre is no go, what are the NCFE courses like (Level 2 upwards) at local colleges?
    Thanks and Cheers

  2. Anna, it might be an idea to acquire the course plan and post it here for general inspection.
    Much depends on where you want to get to. Do you want to be a professional portrait or wedding shooter? If you do then the option of secondment is better than any professional qualification. If you want to be a fine art photographer it might be an idea to take some art school classes. For the dedicated the internet is a great resource.
     
  3. Hi thanks, there's two courses I'm
    looking at. They are:

    uk

    And the other one is:

    courses/become.htm

    What do you think of these? I also
    would like to work towards Licientate
    membership of the Royal Photographic
    Society.

    So which way should I go? I'm thinking
    I would like to specialise in sports
    photography at sporting events, I need
    to try my hand at other areas to work
    out where my specialism should be.

    Thanks.

    Cheers
