Benoni (Head Office)
Situated in the residential area of Farrarmere, Benoni, This is the head office and central booking line for all tuition. Our studio is used for the monthly Studio course, Wedding course, model portfolios, animals, snakes (you name it, we have photographed it) and is also available for rent, on a half day basis, equipped with the necessary lighting and backdrop requirements. We have plenty of safe parking within the grounds both at the front and at the back of the property. The gardens and water features lend themselves to the practical break away sessions that form part of each and every photographic course and compulsory for the well earned coffee and homemade muffin break and chat!
After constant requests, to open further branches, Getpix opened a 3rd branch in Parkmore, Sandton. Set in these vast tranquil grounds of the Field and Study Centre, close to Sandton City, Getpix offers Beginners and Intermediate Photography courses. In addition, we offer Photoshop for beginners and advanced users. Our courses run during the evenings and on Saturdays to allow new students the opportunity to study at a time which is convenient to them. This venue provides a ‘Place for the Soul’. It is located next to the Braamfontein Spruit and the stables which allows our students the opportunity to put into practice, in each lesson, what has been learnt in theory in class. The history of the land on which the Centre stands – The Farm ‘Driefontein” - can be traced back to 1859 when land transactions were first formalized by the Government. It was 280.558morgan in extent with the Braamfontein Spruit running through it. In 1888 it was divided into 9 portions. It had subsequent owners but in 1937 Philip and Emma Arnold bought approx. 40 acres and with the help of some labourers, built the stately, current house themselves. The Field and Study Centre, close to Sandton City, currently offers many varied part time courses ranging from language tuition to pottery, etc. Set in these vast tranquil grounds, Getpix Creative College offers 1 year and part time courses in Photography, Graphic Design, Photoshop and Make Up Artistry. Our part time courses also run during the evenings and on Saturdays to allow new students the opportunity to study at a time which is convenient to them. Getpix offers part time and full time tuition at teh Sandton branch.
