Study Photography

The AIPP does not recommend any specific educational institutions to study photography in Australia but for an individual to become a student member, they must be studying photography at an educational institution which is an accredited higher education institution, or a registered training organisation and must offer at least a Cert IV in a photographic program.

Studying photography is not only exciting, it will also open doors to a wide number of career opportunities, including becoming a professional photographer with a studio or working for yourself as well as photojournalism, wedding photography or fashion photography.  The AIPP’s student membership is aimed at those taking their first steps on the path to a photography career.
