Frequently Asked Questions

Course enrollment duration varies depending on options selected on the checkout. Pick longer duration if you’re slower learner or on busy schedule. Good news is that the lessons and assignments do not have any set deadlines, so you have the freedom to complete the course at your own pace and time.

On average, it takes students anywhere from 10 to 15 weeks to complete the course, though you can also take a break if required and continue the course from where you left off once you are back. Some students take more than 12 to 18 months for completing the course. Don’t worry if you picked a shorter duration and it’s expiring soon. Extensions are available for unlimited time.

We recommend a camera with manual or semi-manual functions, such as Shutter Speed Priority and Aperture Priority. It does not necessarily have to be a DSLR, as several compact cameras now offer these modes. If you are unsure about which camera to choose, please do not hesitate in contacting us with the name and model and we will be more than happy to advise you regarding its suitability for the course.

A tripod will provide the support for getting steady and clear shots for night and long exposure photography, as required in a couple of assignments. That’s the only equipment you will really need.

The course has been specifically designed to teach students the techniques required to get perfect photos straight from the camera, without the need for post-processing through software. Black & White conversion is an exception, though, as we recommend our students to use software for this purpose instead of the in-camera feature.

Freely available software, such as Picasa or Gimp, should adequately serve the purpose. You can also use Windows Live Photo Gallery as it offers a range of image editing features.

There are a number of reasons why you should enroll in Proud Photography’s course. Here are the top 5:

  1. Price The price of our course is one of our strongest points. Most photography courses, both online and offline, usually cost hundreds of dollars. Our courses start at as low as just $3.80/week, which is suitable for all budgets.
  2. No Deadlines – All the assignments and lessons in our course do not have any set deadlines. You have the freedom to complete them at your own pace and time, within your enrollment period of course.
  3. Personal Support – A personal instructor will be assigned to you after you enroll in our course. The instructor will assist you throughout the course and provide constructive feedback on your assignment photos, and also answer any questions or concerns you may have. With Proud Photography, you get feedback within 2 days, as opposed to other online courses that take several weeks to respond.
  4. Industry Acclaim – Our courses have been ranked and reviewed by a number of major photography sites, such as Ephotozine.com (the largest online photography magazine in the UK) and Digital-Photography-School.com. Their praise and appreciation serves as a testament to the quality of our course.
  5. Money Back Guarantee – If you do not note any improvement in your skills or are unhappy with the course, you will get your money back. We trust ourselves to deliver what you expect. For you, it’s a win-win situation and there is nothing to lose!

Since our courses are not accredited formally by a renowned photography association or organization, we can afford to go way below the prices of our competitors. Therefore, this makes Proud Photography a popular choice amongst many. Our students usually prefer top quality photography education rather than formal certificates or diplomas. Keeping this in mind, Proud Photography has been formed by a group of professional photographers whom deliver education of the best quality, and individual feedback throughout the course.

More importantly, we help you get the results you always desired: significant improvement in your photography skills. If you are looking for formal recognition or qualification, the prices of an accredited photography course go well above $1,000!

To keep the integrity of the course intact, one has to follow the learning path accordingly. Topics cannot be skipped around. After all, we cannot cater to students asking basic questions in advanced lessons just because they decided to skip the beginning of the course.

No. Since each course is completely independent, the topics do not overlap – that is, unless you have reasonably strong basics or previous photography experience. If you are a beginner, then the Proud Photography Online Course is the right place to start

Absolutely! In our online school of photography, your time or location does not affect your eligibility to join. As a matter of fact, we have thousands of students from countries around the world, and you are welcome to be one more of them.

The Certificate of Completion is not a formal qualification, but akin to an informal award for successful completion of our course. If you are seeking formal qualifications or certifications, expect to pay over $1,000 for accredited courses.

The courses are delivered directly to your browser. Our courses are not available as hard copies and not sold on DVD or CD either. The reason for this is simple: we want to provide you an interactive environment online, where you can communicate with your instructor as well as other students.

This way, we can address any issues or problems our students face immediately and provide valuable feedback on the work they submit. Proud Photography prefers maintaining high education standards and ensuring individual success instead of just taking your money, handing you a DVD or CD, and forgetting about you!

We believe no DVD or book can deliver the results you desire, and neither can they answer your questions or give you constructive feedback. We take great pride in providing you all this via our online photography courses. Our lessons are printable, so you can keep them with you for reference.

You should be prepared to shoot and work a lot as the course is not only about watching or reading. The learning material is delivered in the form of text, sample images, interactive activities and videos. Then, you will be asked to do a series of exercises and assignments, which will be checked and graded by your personal instructor who you can contact through our messaging system, whenever you need assistance.

You will also receive constructive recommendations and feedback to improve your photography skills. We will closely monitor your progress and answer any questions you have in a timely manner to help you become the pro photographer you want to be. So, if you face any problems or need help, remember – your instructor will always be there to help you out.
