School for cinematography? in General Discussion Posted November 2, 2015 I live in Australia where there isn't a lot of film work, so having a film education would make you more employable. I want to be a cinematographer, but there are no cinematography courses so I thought that if I studied a Photography degree, these skills could be transferable? What do you think? (I don't want to study an overall film degree because you must be a writer and I am not)! I've attaches a photo of some of the degree units.
