The best photography courses and facilities are right here at CIT! The facilities, equipment and studios at CIT are everything you need to learn commercial skills and produce a portfolio of high-quality work.

CIT photography students benefit from:

  • the opportunity to work on real industry projects for commercial clients
  • building a network of contacts in the industry and in complementary art and design fields
  • internship opportunities
  • participation in competitions and exhibitions to launch their work and profile as an emerging commercial practitioner.

Students can learn to specialise in areas such as fashion, advertising, food, travel, architecture, vehicles, documentary, wedding and portrait photography, and many of our graduates have become leaders in some of these fields.
