What we're about

This monthly photographic club at the College of Digital Photography (www.codp.co.za) is for all who share the love and passion for photography. It is the ideal way of staying in touch with your photography and other like-minded people, where we will help inspire and motivate you to keep on photographing and growing as a photographer.

Each month covers a fascinating technique of photography, videography or editing. Occasionally a guest speaker pops in, to share their amazing experiences and images with you. Meetings are held on a monthly basis at CODP's Saxonwold and Fourways and campuses.

The aim of the club is to allow photographers to share their images, meet like-minded people and exchange their photographic knowledge. Anyone is welcome to join this monthly meeting at each CODP campus and no experience is required but please note that space is limited so you need to RSVP to 086 11 74686 (PHOTO) or photo@codp.co.za. Whether you are a past or current student or merely want to meet with like-minded people, then the Imagination Network is a great way of making sure you get the camera out and start photographing!

The College of Digital Photography offers part time photography courses from beginners courses to advanced courses.
