The digital camera is now considered an essential tool for estate agents, architects, designers, professionals and travellers who take interior and exterior photos of buildings.

This course will steer you through the essential tools needed and the technique required to shoot quality, dynamic, creative and emotive shots which portray your client's property in the best possible light. Great photographs of properties and the ability to turn a drab, unappealing property into something attractive for prospective buyers adds value to the property and enhances your business professionalism. For travellers and lovers of fine architecture, you gain the skills to bring back evocative, memorable images of places you have stayed or visited.

The course will also appeal to photographers needing to learn more about flash gun techniques and shooting under a wide range of difficult lighting conditions. Many of our course students just love still life photography and shooting architecture. In this course they will learn from how to shoot industrial warehouses, classic Federation terraces, workers cottages, Italian villas, Greek tavernas, Turkish mosques - and closer to home - iconic Cottesloe landmark buildings such as The Indiana Tearooms, the Cottesloe Beach Hotel, local cafes, beach and lifestyle scenes and prime residential houses & apartments in Cottesloe, Swanbourne & Claremont

Refunds
We reserve the right to cancel and reschedule any course, due to inadequate enrollment, bad weather, instructor illness, or an 'act of God'. We also reserve the right to cancel any course if there is insufficient demand, especially if it means that our costs would be higher than our income. Please therefore do not leave it until the last few weeks if you are interested in a particular date, as you may find that it has been cancelled. As our costs for each training event remain the same no matter how many delegates attend, like any pre-booked tickets for the theatre, concert, flights etc, we are unable to give a full refund in the event of non-attendance, regardless of the circumstances. If withdrawal occurs within the 14 days before the course starts we will try to put you on an alternative date if places are available. Please note that we cannot be liable for any other costs incurred by yourself, so please check with us before booking any non-refundable accommodation or transport.
