Upgrade from an enthusiastic amateur photographer to an aspiring professional. Learn how to make money from photography whilst experiencing incredible photographic platforms in Africa

This popular course aims to provide aspiring photographers with the opportunity to ‘ break into and make it’ the competitive world of wildlife and travel photography. Over the course of a month, students will accompany Africa Media photographers on expeditions throughout the Garden Route in the Southern Cape of South Africa at the same time building their own professional photographic portfolio.

The program includes tutorials and practical training on such aspects of photography as: setting up your own business; how to make enough money to start and keep going; how to market yourself and build your income streams in the field you love. This training, coupled with the practical experience of shooting within various wildlife and travel platforms, will enhance your career prospects. Some benefit from receiving credits within their schools or colleges.

Truly inspiring

In the month I spent as an Africa Media intern, I met and stayed with some of the most amazing people I've ever met. The staff is not only knowledgeable about their craft, they're passionate. They truly care about each and every one of their interns. Their attitudes toward their job and toward their life were absolutely inspiring and I think anyone would be lucky to spend time with them.
