To work as a Professional Photographer, the only “accreditation” you will ever need is a very strong portfolio of images and this is what we, at Bouncing Bulb Academy, will help you to build.
Our Courses and Workshops emphasise the importance of practice and if you are really passionate about photography, keep up the good work, and build confidence, in a very short time you will have what it takes to break in the business of photography.
We reserve the right to deny a certificate if you do not achieve the required standards.
Ideally, you would learn with your own camera because different models vary a lot. When buying a camera you have to think about the size, weight, design, etc…
We have DSLR cameras which you can use free of charge during workshop hours. Please confirm availability before booking the course.
Although any DSLR or Mirrorless camera will suffice for you to learn, we recommend that you talk to us before the workshop for guidance on buying the right stuff.
