DPC was founded in 2010 by Danie Bester, one of South Africa’s foremost Fine Art Photographers. Danie has been lecturing extensively on photography throughout South Africa and has earned the reputation as one of the country’s top photography educators with a natural ability to teach. Over the years, Danie has gathered a team of world class lecturers with varied specialist skills to serve the photography community.
DPC has since become one of South Africa’s top photography institutions. We present an array of photography courses and genres; covering basic photography aspects for beginners to more sophisticated topics aimed at advanced and professional photographers. We believe in small group dynamics and focus on individual needs. Class presentations follow a hands-on approach and our courses offer more practical class time and excursions than any other photography school in South Africa. Students get access to online student platforms where they receive ongoing support and photo critiques; even after they completed their courses.
