Orms CTSP online is moving!

Hi there! Thanks for visiting our online school. We are in the process of moving our courses to a new supplier to make them more interactive. Do not worry; your course is still available on this platform, and we will inform you when we move. I promise that you will enjoy the new platform.

You have a camera, but don't know if you have the skills

Everyone, including hobbyists, complete beginners who are just starting with photography, or intermediate photographers have more creative control than what they think. Online students have different needs from traditional students, and this is where our courses can help as they offer flexibility which can be beneficial to those with busy schedules. Online courses also allow you to study when it suits you best as opposed to being dictated by the availability of an institution or start date. 

If you are interested in photography, have a camera and want to learn more about it, consider enrolling with the online Orms Cape Town School of Photography. We have been teaching photography since 2007 and offer courses on all levels including beginner, intermediate and advanced classes as well as continuing education workshops.

“The camera gave me an incredible freedom. It gave me the ability to parade through the world and look at people and things very, very closely.”

– Carrie Mae Weems (American Photographer)

How to take better photos with your Camera

It's not always about the equipment. A few believe that if they buy a new camera they will be able to take better photos, or as we prefer it: to make a great image. Orms CTSP firmly believes that the photographer makes the image, and not just passively presses a button.

You can start now by joining Orms CTSP in an online course. Our courses are feedback-driven with assignments and practice material to guide students. Orms CTSP prides itself in assisting students tocomplete courses so that they can make work to be proud of, to print or frame for your home or for friends and even new clients. 

How does Orms CTSP improve your skills?

Online tutorials are bountiful so why not just use youtube.com? We make no claims being the sole keeper of photographic knowledge.

Yet unlike other static online courses, Orms CTSP focuses on curating quality courses, and that includes consistently improving and updating courses so that there is no "course decay" when new information, software, technology and topics become available.

 Like our contact classes, we keep the information relevant and up to date.

We engage with our students and strive to provide a similar experience that our campus students have. This includes the opportunity to showcase their skills.

All our online photographic courses include an opportunity to be part of one of our four annual student exhibitions.

Print your work

Our photographic courses include a 15% discount off printing and framing on completion. The discount is redeemed at ormsprintroom.co.za Once the work has been printed, you can have your work couriered to you.

Our certificates and micro-credentials are crypto-encrypted so you, and your potential employer can verify and review the skills learned.

Frequently Asked Questions
