IOP and Canon - Pixma Pro Printing Roadshow

Nothing can beat a print in your hands, and if it is a print of one of your own shots, then that beats everything! But printing is neither easy nor cheap, and this has always been the case. Is that not true? Not any more!

The Principal of the Institute of Photography always jokes that he used to have hair before he started trying to print his own shots! ICC Profiles, Perceptual or Relative Colour Metric, ppi, dpi, paper profiles; enough to give the calmest of people serious anxiety. But that was then, this is now... more >>>

Welcome to a new concept in Digital Photography Courses

The Institute of Photography are Ireland's only dedicated Digital Photography School. We were set up as a response to the need for specialised training in this exciting new area of photography. The explosion in Digital Camera ownership in Ireland in recent years means that many people are coming into digital photography with little or no formal training behind them. As a result we only teach digital photography, full stop

About the Institute of Photography

Our school is built on the philosophy of keeping the technical concepts simple so that our students can find it easier to understand and remember the key principles of photography and digital camera usage.

A unique aspect of the Institute of Photography Courses are the specially produced handouts. All of our notes are written in plain English and are illustrated with full colour photographs and drawings to show you exactly what you need to know. The handouts have all been fine-tuned in a classroom setting, so that each of our tips are guaranteed to work in the real world.

As trainers we realise that the human brain can only take in a little information at a time. Our specially produced notes are a key way to extend the amount of knowledge our students can retain. Not only that, but days and weeks later it is still possible to continue the learning process by simply re-reading the handouts.

Experienced Tutors
The tutors at the Institute of Photography know exactly what they are talking about. Not only have they long experience in teaching Digital Photo and Photo Software Courses, but are professionals in each of the areas they tutor in. They also have buckets of patience and good humour to boot!

Our Courses - designed to make photography easier
If you are interested in taking one of our courses please go to the List of Courses page, if you want to choose a venue that is nearest to you then go to the Course Locations page and if you want to see what the quality of the training material is like then go to the Sample Handout page. You can book a place on one of our courses by going to the Contact Us page.

Apart from training we also have a Photo Doctor page which might help you to figure out why a particular photo did not turn out the way you expected. This section has information and visuals to help you out free of charge. There is even a page showing some of the basic decisions you need to make before Buying a Digital Camera.
