Open University Online Course

Digital photography: creating and sharing better images

Digital photography: creating and sharing better images

This 10 week online course, which has been developed with the Open University (OU), is designed to give you the ability to create and share high quality digital images, together with the necessary basic skills if you would like to tackle The Royal Photographic Society Licentiate Distinction (LRPS) in still photography.

It is suitable for the beginner and does not assume any knowledge of photographic techniques or digital photo-editing skills. It will also appeal to those who want to top up their skills.

Successful completion of the course will lead to the award of the RPS Certificate in Photography.  The certificate is free to members of The Society who have completed the course and for a small fee to non-members. Members will also be entitled to attend a free Distinctions Advisory Day.

The RPS are offering membership at the Student rate of £55.00 per year for those who have enrolled on this course or within 8 weeks of completing it (please sign up via the RPS website as a student member and provide us with your OU enrolment details as proof).  If you are an existing RPS Member you may be entitled to a partial refund, please contact the Membership department to discuss this further.

"I have just passed the TG089 Digital Photography Course and I have thoroughly enjoyed it.  Thank you for allowing students, including students like myself from overseas, to study photography and become part of a great community of fellow photographers via the Royal Photographic Society." S.K., The Netherlands

 * The course is available worldwide and costs £200. 

Registration is now open for November 2020
