Who are we...
Getpix Creative College has a consistent aim to educate our students, so that they can go out into the market place with their chosen profession as confident, creative, knowledgeable entrepreneurs.
We pride ourselves on small classes with individual attention.
We teach students to become photographers, graphic designers, makeup artists, videographers, sound engineers, body painters, fashion designers, tattoo artists, film makers, interior designers, digital marketeers and gaming developers. We start right at the very beginning so students can grow steadily and firmly in their dedicated path to success.
Our youngest full time student was 13 years old. He completed his 1 year photographic course at GETPIX while being home schooled for high school in the afternoons – talk about his dedication! Most of our students have just completed their matric - but you do not need matric or any subjects or grades to study with us, neither do you need any set subjects. Artistic people require passion and dedication for their chosen career.
Our tertiary school branches are based in Benoni, Sandton, and Roodepoort in Gauteng, Durbanville in Cape Town and Vanderbijlpark in the Vaal Triangle. We will continue to grow. Our dynamic instructors are all active within their industry of expertise.
Our college offers studies for 1 year courses in Photography, Graphic Design, Makeup Artistry, Fashion Design, Film Making, Interior Design and Sound Engineering. Videography, Game Design, Body Painting, Tattoo Artistry and Digital Marketing courses are 6 months. Online or correspondence courses as well as part time courses, are other options of study.
Some students complete a one year course and continue with a second course. Why? Because, so many of these courses work hand in hand. The more you know, the less you have to pay someone else to do a job - knowing more increases your earning potential.
We teach you the industry standard Adobe software: Photoshop, Lightroom, Illustrator, InDesign, Premier Pro, and After Effects, along with hands on practical experience to understand how this software will enhance your artistic vision.
Workshops, outings and tours all form part of GETPIX studies.
Whether you are looking for a gap year to learn a creative skill or maybe you are wanting to make your creative choice your profession, pop in for a coffee and a chat or attend one of our open days. Meet our current students and ask them what they think about studying at GETPIX and how they are making money, marketing themselves.
