"Unlock Your Creativity: Learn Fine Art Photography with these Advanced Lessons.

If you've completed our art photography modules and want to take your skills to the next level, our advanced workshops are for you. Learn fine art photography and explore the creative world of fine-art portfolio and exhibition photography. Our program will take you into the world of creating emotive artworks where storytelling, social commentary, and deeper meaning are essential.

In our advanced classes, we'll explore the full range of art attributes, including shape, distortion, colour, texture, and juxtaposition, helping you create a themed portfolio of exhibition prints that capture your artistic vision. Our advanced workshops consist of two courses: "The Next Level" and "Master Class," each comprising five two-hour lessons taught once a week.

These small, interactive, and workshop-oriented classes offer live presentations over Zoom and video recordings to demonstrate techniques, allowing you to easily learn fine art photography. Throughout the course, you'll develop conceptual ideas and unlock your creativity to reach new levels of exhibition art.

Note that our advanced workshops are an extension of our art photography modules and can only be attended by completing lessons one to ten. Join us to learn traditional art techniques like encaustic wax, metallic leafing, and ink, combined with heat and image projection, to create stunning art that will extend your artistic vision. Take the next step and learn fine art photography today!"

"

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?
 
To learn fine art photography from you was my sanity during lockdown!
 
Incredible experience.

Thanks again!

  • Do you offer this course online without having to attend a scheduled zoom class?
    Absolutely! In this comprehensive self-study program offered at the Art Photography Academy (www.artphotographyacademy.com), participants can embark on their art photography journey immediately without the need for scheduled Zoom classes. This unique course provides in-depth content, and participants have the flexibility to learn at their own pace. Moreover, they will be part of a dynamic online classroom with other students, fostering collaboration and community engagement. Additionally, participants gain access to an extended network of artists who have completed the course, further enhancing their learning experience. To complement the self-paced structure, I personally meet with participants on a monthly basis to answer questions and provide mentorship, ensuring a well-rounded and supportive environment for their artistic development.
  • Why is there a difference between the price of your live zoom class compared to the same course offered at the Art Photography Academy
    The pricing difference of approximately $100 between the live Zoom class and the "Getting Started in Art Photography" course at the Art Photography Academy is attributed to the enhanced structure and depth of content provided by the academy. In the academy course, while the core content remains the same, the detailed structure, absence of live teaching, and the incorporation of supporting videos and thorough explanations contribute to a more comprehensive learning experience. The monthly meet-ups for questions and mentorship further enrich the participant's journey. This additional level of depth and ongoing support reflects in the pricing difference, ensuring that participants in the Art Photography Academy receive a robust and well-supported educational experience, tailored to foster their growth and proficiency in art photography.
  • What platform do you use to teach this online course on?
    At the moment we are using ZOOM for live courses.
  • Is this course only taught online or do you still offer face to face classroom teaching?
    All of the Art Photography courses are taught online, either live over zoom or through our newly formed Art Photography Academy where you can enrol for a week by week, step by step course.
  • 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?
    We recommend either a DSLR (Digital Single Lens Reflex) camera or a digital mirrorless camera. The most important thing is that the camera has a full manual (M) mode which can easily be adjusted. If you do not have a camera yet and will be purchasing one before attending the course, we can help you with a recommended list depending on your budget.
  • I don't know anything about photography, but I would like to know how to learn fine art photography, is this a concern?"
    There no need to worry. The lessons are really simple and the course is taught in a step by step manner. Very often it is easier to teach a person photography from scratch than to change bad habits.
  • What happens if I miss a lesson?
    Ideally, it would be better if you could attend the course without missing a lesson. But we do understand that life happens. This course has recorded lessons for students who may have to miss a class. This is especially helpful for those who are interested in learning how to learn fine art photography, as it ensures that they don't miss any crucial information or techniques that are covered during the course. Catching up before the next module is presented ensures that students can stay on track and continue to build upon their knowledge and skills throughout the course. If you feel that you may need to miss some of the live sessions, rather consider doing the same course presented on the Art Photography Academy where you can learn at your own pace.
  • What if I find the course too basic?
    As the course goes through to an intermediate level this rarely happens. Usually by the third lesson people who have prior knowledge of photography learn from the content. So should you feel that the course is too simple for you, you would know this by the end of the second lesson. At this point you could move onto an advanced class free of charge, or get a full refund should you wish not to continue.
  • 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 zoom courses live. The course offered through the Art Photography Academy is pre-recorded.
  • Should I do this course before doing the Fine Art Photography or Landscape Photography course?
    If you do not have a solid understanding of the basics of photography, and you are not able to operate your camera in full manual mode with confidence, then it would be advisable to do this course first.

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."
