Multi Award-Winning Training Modules

Interactive. Intuitive. Inspiring.

Many online photography courses provide students with downloadable PDF’s and call it “online learning”. We call it boring. At iPhotography™ all learning materials are interactive, up-to-date, intuitive, stimulating and designed to be fun!

This is just one of many reasons why we were recently awarded as WINNERS of the ‘Fastest Growing Eduction Provider’ and ‘Fastest Growing International Business’ categories at the Fast Growth 50 awards. And probably why we have been selected as finalists for ‘Best Content Provider’ at the prestigious Education Investor Awards for the third year running.
