Langara College in Vancouver, British Columbia offers a very extensive photography certification program geared toward freelance photographers wishing to hone their skills or start to specialize. I just noticed that this fall, starting in September, there’s a 12 week class focused on food and beverage photography taught by two professional food photographers. Each Saturday morning, students spend 3 hours doing coursework and labs, with weekly photo assignments and access to professional level equipment (including a 4×5 camera). Class tuition is $479 CDN. For more information (including a week by week class schedule), see the Langara College website.
