Take each subject individually or select a range of units to broaden your horizons. Places are limited.
If you are considering enrolling in our certificate programme, you may want to try a workshop first. You will experience the school, our teaching style and passion, and can make an informed decision if this is the place for you to begin your photographic journey!
Please see the current schedule for dates (including the $40 early enrolment discount date / "Census Date")

Have you ever wanted to do street photography but have been unsure how to begin? This masterclass will dissect what street photography is to you, leading to practical work and an image review about a fortnight later.
The aim of the workshops are to allow people the opportunity to experience specialised areas of photographic study which they might not otherwise be able to complete for various reasons. The workshops are therefore shorter in duration and lesser in cost – often with modelling fees and equipment kits provided.
All of the teaching staff are practising artists in their own right and the Centre can therefore assure you of expert tuition. Just as with any other area of formal learning, workshops may not be for everybody, but they do provide an excellent venue to meet with other like-minded people and in a very comfortable environment.
Workshops & Conceptual Development
The CCP usually offers about eight courses in its Summer, Autumn, Winter and Summer schools. We also welcome your suggestions for other classes. Get a group together (6 to 10 is ideal) with an interest in any photographic topic, and providing our staff are available we can run a class for you. Look below for a list of sample topics.
The Summer, Autumn, Winter and Summer schools are a series of workshops set up to run separately from the formal classes that we run throughout the year. Participants usually learn very intensely over either a day or perhaps over the course of a week, however your more obvious learning often occurs further down the track after having completed the classes.
By their very nature, workshop topics are offered sporadically sometimes occasionally or even frequently according to demand, but they will certainly occur with your support. If you are interested in any specialised areas of study listed below please register your interest at the school for further information. Conversely you may wish to suggest a topic of your own for us to research for a future class.
Advice with the development of portfolios for entrance to art school or personal use will be given on an individual basis if requested.
