Architecture & real estate photography course in Perth

A Perth based Architecture and Real Estate photography course • 7 hrs • iconic Perth buildings ■ residential homes • outdoors • small groups • detailed notes • $390


The digital camera is now considered an essential tool for estate agents, architects, designers, professionals and travellers who take interior and exterior photos of buildings.

This practical, hands-on course will steer you through the essential tools needed and the technique required to shoot quality, dynamic, creative and emotive shots which portrays your client's property in the best possible light. Great photographs of properties and the ability to turn a drab, unappealing property into something attractive for prospective buyers adds value to the property and enhances your business professionalism. For travellers and lovers of fine architecture, you gain the skills to bring back evocative, memorable images of places you have stayed or visited.

The course will also appeal to photographers needing to learn more about flash gun techniques and shooting under a wide range of difficult lighting conditions. Many of our course students just love still life photography and shooting architecture. In this course they will learn from how to shoot a Jacobean country home, classic Georgian terraces, Cotswold cottages, Italian villas, Greek tavernas, Turkish mosques, Canadian log cabins and closer to home prime beachside Cottesloe/Swanbourne residential houses and apartments.

The Code Lime Photography Smartphone photography course encapsulates the motto 'the best camera is the one you have with you.' The Smartphones in our pockets have officially replaced every other camera out there. Over 90% of the population create images on their Smartphone. This punchy, informative, creative course will cover the strengths of Smartphones in composition and lighting, catering to their natural advantages.

The pet (dog) photography course covers the gear and technique needed to take great shots. It requires a fast, trained eye to capture the action using varying depth of fields, shutter speeds, freezing and capturing motion and incorporating the right light and composition to create a great image. Animal photography is challenging, rewarding and highly satisfying. When you nail a great shot you can feel justifiably proud. We also cover Smartphones as they are seriously good at capturing action, Slo Mo and short video clips.
