South Africa is a place that is filled with beautiful natural landscapes. Every corner of South Africa is beautiful including Lisbon Falls, Oribi Gorge, The Valley of Desolation, The Dolphin Coast and The Cederberg Mountains in the Western Cape. When you live in such a breathtaking country like South Africa, learning how to do photography becomes a must.


There are many famous photographers in South Africa such as Kgomotso Neto, Kutlwano Mogotsi, Kgotso Michael Aphane and Andile Buka from whom you can take inspiration in the landscape as well as portrait photography. These photographers have earned popularity among the public due to their unique photography skills. If you want to become one of these awesome photographers and rule over the photo industry of South Africa then you need to take photography classes without any delay.


Often people have the skills to pursue photography as a profession but what they lack is grooming and recognition of this skill. By joining photography classes one thing will be clear – you will get to know how good you are with the camera and also how much more improvement you need.


If you want to become a professional photographer but are not sure if it’s worth it in terms of income, then you will be glad to know that the average income of a photographer in South Africa per hour is R360 and R136,684 per year. Yes, you can make that much money by learning how to do photography.


Now the problem is, who will teach you the necessary techniques and tactics of photography? Who will inform you in South Africa all about the latest lenses and DSLR cameras? Who will explain to you what the difference between a landscape and panorama picture is? The answer to all of these questions is addressed to a home tutor or tuition center that specializes in teaching photography to beginners as well as professionals. Therefore, we have collected all these home tutors from the biggest to smallest parts of South Africa for you so that you can find a tutor that is most suitable to you in terms of distance, tuition fees and convenience.
