The School of Photographic Imaging (SPI), established in 2000 by Amateur Photographer and What Digital Camera magazines, is joining forces with Nikon UK to expand its portfolio of distance learning courses.
The SPI is the UK’s most highly respected provider of leisure photography courses and offers inspirational home study programmes designed to transform keen enthusiasts into accomplished amateur photographers.
The Amateur Photographer Diploma in Photography teaches students how to become better all-round photographers and take pictures of a high technical and artistic standard. The Introduction to Digital Imaging for Photographers gives students the necessary skills to capture and process their digital images to a high level.
Damien Demolder, chair of the SPI and Amateur Photographer’s award-winning editor, says: “We're absolutely delighted that Nikon UK has agreed to become a partner for the SPI. Together we will be able to reach even more students and guide more enthusiasts through some of the difficult steps on the way to mastering this immense subject. Nikon UK already has an excellent reputation for training its customers and we hope that the Amateur Photographer and What Digital Camera SPI will provide a valuable and significant addition to Nikon's programme.”
Jeremy Gilbert, group marketing manager at Nikon UK, adds: “We are delighted to be part of the SPI and give photography enthusiasts continued support as they develop their skills and take their photography to the next level. With their knowledge and expertise we are confident the students will benefit a great deal from the Amateur Photographer and What Digital Camera tutors.”
