Canon Imaging Academy

An expensive modern camera will probably give great pictures but undoubtedly draw snap judgments. The camera will not do the job all by itself. A nice shot requires talent, technical knowledge and a photographer’s eye.

This week, LIFT brings photography lovers a cool place: photography-Canon Imaging Academy (CIA) (i-Qlick Company’s building, 146 Preah Sihanouk Blvd, Phnom Penh)

CIA offers a large selection of photography courses to choose from: Basic Digital Photography, Landscape Photography, Outdoor Lighting Portrait, Photo Journalism, and Fashion Photography.

According to Keo Dararatha, a CIA marketing Executive representative, “the company was created because many people thought a DSLR or a modern camera could get them nice shots. In fact snapping a nice photo requires a lot of technical knowledge about photography”.

“Two courses have been open to everyone without age-limitation for 5 months,” he says.

Every course has its own specialty and helps all participants develop technical skills with exposure, aperture, shutter speed, adequate choice of ISO, focal length, lens perspective and composition.

“Our students have the opportunity to work with professional and highly qualified Khmer and foreign photographers,” says Keo Dararatha.

“Not only do students learn about theory but also directly shoot outside the classroom. Upon graduation, they all get a certificate”.

“With the variety of topics and the many different approaches we tackle, each specific course is designed to bring students the means and skills to respond to the job market’s current needs and adapt to contemporary trends. Students in photojournalism will then work as photojournalists”.

Tuition fees mostly depend on class content. All courses, however, do not exceed $100,00.

To learn more about photography and photo design, go directly to i-Qlick and sign up for a photography course.
