Our Photography & Video Production diploma program teaches students the foundational skills of photography and digital video production, ensuring a well-rounded, marketable skillset that affords students job opportunities in both fields. Visual content creation is a universal, highly-profitable industry, and such content has never been in higher demand than it is today. As a Photo/Video student, you will be surrounded and inspired by other motivated, talented, and artistic students as you learn everything there is to know about a camera, and the countless creative things you can do with it.


Never before have we seen the corporate explosion of jobs in still photography that we are witnessing today. As the world focuses on generating more online content for marketing purposes, employers are seeking well-rounded individuals to create visually stimulating content to use on websites and social media. This activity draws viewers to the company’s website and in turn strengthens their SEO and search rankings, leading to higher sales. This demand for trained photographers is what is fueling the job growth in this exciting and fast-paced field.

Video is everywhere. Despite a lot of content being recorded on smart phones nowadays, careers are built on expertise in video production. Whether they dream of working in Hollywood films, online content creation, or commercial videography for local businesses, our students prepare for such careers through hands-on application of the fundamentals of moving images.

Students learn the entire process: pre-production scriptwriting, on-set video production, audio production for video, and post-production editing. Every hit TV show, major motion picture, or social media star has a crew of video production experts behind them; our students study everything they need to join that team, or create something entirely their own.
