Course Brief :

Beginning Soon ...

Like other traditional artistic genres, portraiture was radically transformed with the advent of modern art. Portraiture is one of the oldest and most practiced forms of photography and thus it constantly evolves and changes. This online and interactive photography course with photographer, Jashim Salam is designed to encourage you to really think beyond norm about how you approach the visual portrayal of your subject.

There are many stories and truths that a portrait can tell us about the subject present before the camera. Whether it be the classic approach by Yousuf Karsh’s celebrity portraits or the surrealist portrait by Man Ray, the contemporary portrait can reveal more than you’d first expect.  This online and interactive portrait photography course will lead you to think outside of conventions - use space, light and your subject’s environment, bringing out confidence and imagination to create compelling portraits.

Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:

  • Different visual approaches in Portraiture
  • Understanding personality and spirit of the person in Portrait
  • Understanding light and use it to enhance your portraiture
  • Go beyond "rules" to portray subjects more creatively
  • Importance of developing a relationship with the subject
  • Developing story through portraiture


What you will need:

  • A camera – either digital or film. (Mobile camera such as iPhone also work)
  • Note, however, that all images must be digitized before uploading to the TCI site. This means, if you shoot film, you will need to scan it before sending your pictures
  • Lenses - I would recommend a selection of lenses if you have them - or a zoom covering 35mm to 105m. However, if you have one “standard” (i.e. 50mm) lens you can still achieve amazing portrait results and will be truly pleased with your results in this course
  • Self-motivation to get the most from this instructor-interactive course
