You can now turn your dream into a reality with SAE Creative Media Institute’s new Diploma of Photography and Photo Imaging. To celebrate the launch of their new course, SAE’s Melbourne Campus will be hosting a free Masterclass with celebrity photographer Jules Tahan.


With more than 20 years of experience as a photographer, Tahan has made a name for himself around the world for his skills in music, portraiture, lifestyle and corporate photography. He has sat behind the lens capturing many famous faces over the years, from the likes of Molly Meldrum to Guy Pearce. Offering insight into his craft, Tahan explains, “These things don’t happen by accident – there’s always a huge amount of planning that goes into making a shot look spontaneous. For me photography is a tool that allows me to communicate by getting a message across in the clearest and most visually arresting way. It’s a challenge that gets me fired up!”


The Masterclass is not only a unique opportunity to learn from one of the industry’s most recognised photographers, it also gives students a chance to find out more about the diploma and visit SAE’s state-of-the-art facility.


SAE’s Lecturer of Photography, Rikki Bunder, explains that the course is designed to give student’s real life experience and is open to anyone. “The Diploma is designed for anyone aspiring to work as a professional photographer in advertising, commercial, architecture, fashion, wedding, media and other diverse industries. With our focus on creative media, it will be ideal for anyone wanting to work as a photographer in the music and film industries,” Bunder said.


Students who enrol in the diploma will get access to industry-standard lighting gear and world-class facilities including a professional cyclorama studio and sound stage. To be eligible, applicants must present a simple portfolio demonstrating that they can use a DSLR camera in different situations and challenges.


The Jules Tahan Photography Masterclass will be held on Tuesday, August 23 from 1:00PM. The Diploma of Photography and Digital Imaging will commence in September at SAE Melbourne. Enrolments are now open. Visit www.sae.edu.au/melbourne.
