Honestly, I'm pretty sure everyone knows just how key it is to take beautiful photos in today's world. We're living in an age where pictures don't just say 1000 words anymore... they pretty much say it all. So it's super important that your photos say exactly what you want them to.
If you’re an aspiring photographer, or just someone who loves communicating through image, then you know that we live in a world where everyone takes photos so it is very important to distinguish yourself by being consistent in the quality of your photos. That’s where Montreal's Dawson College comes in.
Knowing how to take quality photos is an art in itself and learning how to take these photos can be expensive at times. But Dawson College offers a full-time, tuition-free (for Quebec residents), Commercial Photography program at night where you can learn to shoot like a pro.
Yeah, you read that right. Tuition free, as long as you're a resident of Quebec!
