DPC was founded in 2010 by fine art photographer, Danie Bester. Danie has been lecturing extensively on photography throughout South Africa and has earned the reputation of being one of the country’s top photography educators. He recently received the AIA Grand Master Award for elevating the art of photography through his personal work as well as his extraordinary contribution to the photographic community in South Africa. Over the years, Danie has gathered a team of world-class, award-winning photographers, all specialists in their own fields, to teach a broad variety of photography courses.
DPC has since become one of South Africa’s top photography institutions. We present various 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 feedback; even after they have completed their courses.
