Course Design- Practice makes a photographer perfect.
The course is designed in a way that suits student skill levels, objectives and the time they can spare for this course. Students have a choice of picking independent modules from the course, or all three modules together, depending on their existing skill levels. Each module will have four theory lessons as well as practical exercises that include photo walks and special events after college hours and on weekends.
Special Nikon DSLR offer: What’s even more exciting is the special offer from Nikon for students. Those without DSLR cameras can now purchase a DSLR camera kit and the three modules together at a special price.
With the launch of this course, MAHE Dubai is paving the way for a generation of photographers to document of the changing and evolving times and lives.
