A word from the Principal, Paula Rutherford
Each year, GETPIX Creative College continues to grow. Our growth is small and incremental. We commenced in November 2007, 11 years ago, with part time courses only. To date, we have taught in excess of 1 980 students.
Our first full time, one year course, started in 2012. This year 17 full time students registered, across 4 different full time courses. We have had students also attending from Natal and Mpumalanga.
I would like to thank my staff and instructors for their enthusiasm, professionalism and dedication to our students.
We would like to congratulate all of our students and wish everyone, a 2019 to be remembered as one of growth and positivity.

Fashion Photography Week
This month our photographic students completed a module on Fashion photography. Their module comprised of Lay Flat, Studio and on Location shooting. Flat Lay fashion takes time and a creative person to successfully portray garments and accessories in a pleasing manner which will excite prospective buyers. The on location shoot was a joint venture with models from Vaal Tech. Samba and his friends took a 4 hour train journey to Benoni. Wow, they really were prepared. Each GETPIX student was paired up with a model using The Observatory as their backdrop with natural lighting. The images show how much fun everyone had and the level of our students talent 9 months into their photographic career. Our fashion studio shoot was a collaboration with fashion designer William De Beer. Pikkies garments were flawlessly designed and the models carried his line of clothing to perfection. This time students used studio lights to achieve their images.
