Fine Art Photography Courses

TRANSFORM YOUR PHOTOGRAPHY INTO EXHIBITION ART

Check out our STUDENT SHOWCASE >>

These exciting advanced workshops follow from the previous ten art photography lessons and explore the creative world of fine art portfolio and exhibition photography.

Although taught in the same format as the previous course, these "advanced" lessons break away from decorative art into emotive prints where deeper meaning, social commentary and storytelling become essential. You will be shown how to come up with conceptual ideas and how to unlock your creativity into a higher level of exhibition art.

 

Attributes in the art such as shape, distortion, colour, texture and juxtaposition are now explored to their maximum, as students are mentored towards creating a themed portfolio of exhibition prints.

These advanced lessons are presented as an extension to art photography lessons and cannot be attended without completing lessons one to ten. 

This complete program also consists of two classes. "The Next Level" and "Master Class" each comprising of five two hour lessons, taught once a week. Classes are presented live over Zoom, and video recordings are screened to demonstrate techniques. Classes are small in size, interactive and workshop orientated.

 

Traditional art techniques like encaustic wax, metallic leafing and ink are combined with heat and image projection to create incredible art that is an extension of the artist's vision.

"

The only thing that has disappointed me about your advanced fine art photography course is that there is no advanced, advanced course offered to continue on this wonderful journey.
 
What am I going to do without your weekly creative input of creativity Martin?
 
This was my sanity during lockdown!
 
Incredible experience.
Thanks again!

Frequently asked questions

What platform do you use to teach this online course on?


At the moment we are using ZOOM




Is this course only taught online or do you still offer face to face classroom teaching?


This fine art photography course is now designed to be taught online and presents really well. Classroom taught options will only be offered once COVID 19 has run its course and it is safe to offer classroom teaching.




What is the difference between the content of the online course and a face to face classroom presented course?


The course content is identical.




How many students do you accept on a course?


We accept no more than eight students per course. We keep the class size small to promote interaction and enchourage mentorship and relationship.




What camera equipment will I need to do the course?


You can use any camera, but we recommend either a DSLR (Digital Single Lens Reflex) camera or a digital mirrorless camera.




What happens if I miss a lesson?


Ideally, it would be better if you were able to attend the course without missing a lesson. But we do understand that life happens. When a student is missing from a class, the lesson is recorded, so you will be able to catch up before the next module is presented.




Do you issue a certificate on completion?


On request, we would be able to issue a certificate of attendance on completion.




Is the online course taught live, or is it pre-recorded?


Martin Osner teaches the course live.




I have never done art and I cannot draw or paint. It this a concern?


Not at all. The camera is going to be used to do create the foundation of the artwork and mixed media techniques are really easy and fun. There is an artist in everyone, this course will open up doors that you did not even know existed.




I am an acomplished artist, will this course be of value to me?


If you are looking for fresh ideas, techniques and starting points, and inspiration then absoloutely.




Besides a camera and a computer, what other equipment will I need?


Firstly you will need a small work area. Then beside a camera, the following equipment is required. 1. A4 size inkjet printer. 2. A4 size laser jet printer (optional). 3. A4 - A3 size light table. 4. 2 x Study lamps. 5. Camera body cap that will be used for pinhole photography.




What software will I require to do the course?


We suggest you subscribe to Adobe Creative Cloud and sign up for the basic photographers package which will give you access to: (Approx $12 per month) https://www.adobe.com/creativecloud/photography/compare-plans.html?promoid=P3KMQYMW&mv=other 1. Photoshop CC 2. Bridge CC 3. Lightroom CC 4. Adobe Camera Raw CC Exposure software, previously known a Alien Skin is recommended but not essential. https://exposure.software/




What art materials will I need?


Only the basics;

  • Watercolour / Acrylic paint
  • Chalk pastels
  • Watercolour paper
  • Water pencils
  • Spray paint




What is the difference between the Getting Started and the Going Further Lessons?


Lessons six to ten are simply a continuation of the first five lessons.




Can I go straight onto lessons 6-10 without doing lessons 1-5?


It is not advisable as the course builds one technique onto the other.




What is the difference between these Art Photography lessons (1-10) and the Advanced Fine Art Photography workshops (11-20)


Art photography is a more decorative genre and fine art photography is more emotive. Art photography is generally suited for interior decor whereas Fine Art Photography is more appeals more to art galleries for exhibition.

SHOWCASE

" I so enjoyed the first six lessons, but I found the additional workshops very inspirational and challenging, but in a good way. Honestly, I did not realise that I was capable of creating such interesting work. Thank you to the class, you guys are awesome, and a big thank you, Martin, for guiding us through a creative wonderland! I will never forget this course."
