Certificate IV in Photography & Photoimaging

This qualification has been superseded by the Department of Education, Skills and Employment and will change in 2022.

You can still apply for this course and you will be supported to transfer into the new qualification once it becomes available. This may result in changes to the course structure, content and fees.

This certificate is focused on students gaining highly practical photographic skills with a strong emphasis on collaboration, professionalism and hands-on industry knowledge.

You will initially study all areas of photography in the Certificate IV and upon successful completion, advance to areas of specialisation in the Diploma of Photography and Photo Imaging.

The one-year Certificate IV is designed to reflect the role of individuals working as photographers’ assistants. You will learn to apply a broad range of skills in lighting, image capture, enhancements, manipulation and output.

Upon successful completion, you are encouraged to apply and advance into areas of specialisation in the Diploma of Photography and Photo Imaging. This is also a one-year qualification, where you’ll produce highly professional folios of work both on location and in studio and gain technical skills to plan, carry out and evaluate photo imaging services.
