Use your creative talents to begin a career in photography

Apply your creativity and learn the technical skills required to produce outstanding photographic images.

The Certificate IV in Photography and Photo Imaging is the perfect introduction to build the creative and technical skills you need as a photographer. This course has a strong mix of art and commercial based subjects, developing both digital and analogue skills including digital image capture, studio and location lighting and access to our black and white darkroom facilities.

Our course is endorsed by the Australian Institute of Professional Photography (AIPP) and is delivered by experienced teachers who are current practitioners in their field, either running their own photographic practice and businesses or working in industry. Our teachers inspire and support our students to create a portfolio in a range of styles.

Chisholm Institute’s focus is on quality facilities and links to industry partners to provide stimulating and strong technical and creative expertise in the photography field. The program is supported with workshops, excursions and photography industry visits including the The Ballarat International Foto Biennale and participation in national competitions such as the Head On photography festival.

Full time: 2-3 days per week


Please note that, due to the COVID-19 pandemic and social distancing requirements, to continue your learning journey, this program will be delivered remotely where possible.

Participants will be required to engage with learning material online and via video conferencing software rather than attend classes. Refer to our COVID-19 Online Service Standards for details of minimum technical requirements and support available. While it is expected that the course duration will remain unchanged, it may be necessary to extend the completion date if circumstances change. Chisholm will be monitoring the situation closely and inform of any changes if the duration of a course is extended.
