WHAT IS OPI & HOW DOES IT WORK?
The Online Photo Institute (OPI) delivers great photography courses over the net. You work with your own personal photography mentor (yes, a real human being) who will help you to get your photography to the next level.
Our courses are developed by Phil Davison, who worked as Programme Manager, Course Coordinator and Facilitator for the Southern Institute of Technology from 2001 to 2013, making Phil one of the most experienced teachers of creative work by distance learning in the country.
How does it work?
The courses are all available form the menu at left. There you’ll see the courses we have available. You can view the start of each course as well as a sample of the entire course. All the courses are available to subscribers – see the ‘Subscribe’ link in the top menu.
To subscribe you can pay by Pay Pal or credit card (using the Pay Pal site).
As a Standard Subscriber you get full access to all the materials, and you’ll work by yourself at your own pace to master photography.
As a Premium Subscriber you’ll have access to all the same materials but you’ll be in constant contact with Phil who will act as your personal photography mentor.
As a Premium Subscriber you get to work with your own personal photography mentor. A real human. Someone who will critique your images and tell you what you need to do to improve your photography.
It’s affordable. We use a stripped down business model that means we focus on communication with students, and we don’t have a plush corporate office or other extras that don’t contribute to making the student experience as good as possible. Check out the prices – they are less than half the prices of many of our competitors.
You can work at your own pace. Unlike most other university based courses, you can take as long as you like on each assignment.
It’s hands on. You have some theory to read, and then you have a practical assignment that will give you a chance to learn-by-doing.
We have a ten day money-back guarantee: within the first ten days you can get a full refund.
Assessment is optional. If you want you can submit work to our examination panel, and gain certification, or you can just do the courses and not worry about certification.
The course is brought to you by people with extensive experience in teaching photography by distance learning.
We actually enjoy photography, and teaching photography!
