I know the basics of photography. How can Seamedu’s photography course benefit me?

Seamedu School of Pro-Expressionism’s digital photography course is designed to help you transform from a beginner or amateur photographer to an expert. The photography program offered in Pune covers everything – from the fundamental principles of photography to advanced concepts and practical applications. The course is split into semesters to help students advance from the basics to the nitty-gritty of the subject.

Whether you have some or no knowledge of photography, this course can enable you to become a proficient, industry-ready, and highly skilled photographer. Apart from these benefits, you also have access to some of the most reputed industry professionals in the form of faculty members, exposure to industry-standard equipment and software (Photoshop, Lightroom, Bridge and Capture One), and lots of projects to help you practically apply what you learn in the classroom.

What are the courses available at the photography institute based in Pune?

Seamedu’s Pune campus is home to aspiring photographers and creative youngsters who dream big. In Pune, the institute primarily offers two comprehensive photography courses :

  • The degree program - Bachelor’s degree or BA in Commercial Photography
  • The diploma course - Diploma in Commercial Photography

The degree course in photography is a three-year-long program (split into six semesters) that you can apply for after completing 12th grade or its equivalent in any stream. It is designed to equip students with the right set of skills, knowledge, and technical proficiencies required to enter the industry.

The diploma program, on the other hand, can be completed in just 12 months. Again, the prerequisite for this course is the same as above.
