FAQs

Our Bali bootcamps are designed to take your foundational skills, either from the digital bootcamp or prior personal experience and then take it to the next level. While attending the digital bootcamp first is recommended it's not a requirement if you already have some photography experience, and if you enroll now in the November Bali Bootcamp you'll complimentary access to the digital photography bootcamp (worth $1950) so you can browse the lesson before you arrive as a refresher. If you would like help figuring out if you're skills are at the right level for the Bali bootcamp, just reach out to our team and you can chat with a course advisor or one of our lead instructors, Tina or Emilio.

It's a structured 8-week program where you have dedicated lessons and activities each week - each week new lessons unlock, and once they have been unlocked they stay open forever. All the lessons are available on-demand (so you can watch them any time of day) and if you fall a little behind you'll have plenty of opportunities to catch up. We understand life happens, and our team are here to support you every step of the way.

It will require a minimum of 6-8 hours of your time per week to complete the course, and these hours can be entirely suited around your schedule, there is no set times or days needed. 

While we recommend joining a set cohort for the full experience of learning alongside a global community of peers, if you want to get started right away and prefer to have self-paced instant access to all 8 weeks just reach out to the team and we can set you up with an instant enrollment for the digital bootcamp.

One of the most important parts of our digital bootcamp model is the hands-on support provided by mentors. We have numerous challenges for support and every single lesson includes a practical activity that you can share with the mentors for one-on-one feedback. We also have weekly Q&As where you can ask questions specific to your needs or to go more in-depth in the content offered. It's the most hands-on, supportive program of it's kind and one of the things our alumni rave about most in their reviews.

And in our Bali bootcamp with a 1:4 ratio of instructors to students, so that you have all the one-on-one attention you need to thrive.

Our digital bootcamps are so much more than an online course, and worlds away from DIY learning on youtube. They are in-depth, comprehensive, and practical. They go beyond surface level knowledge to share insights into the entire professional workflow and client process that most people never share.

We consolidate absolutely everything you need to learn into one program so that you don't have to waste time on videos that overlap or contradict and fill in all the gaps so that you are ready to launch your own business. And we support you with personal feedback & accountability every single step of the way. For a full explanation of how we're different, scroll down to the video below titled 'So much more than an online course'.

You have access to all the course materials (videos, templates, resources, etc) for life. After the bootcamp you stay part of a private alumni community for all of our photography bootcamp students. We'll continue supporting you through the community, where we encourage you to ask for help, share your wins, etc and we'll continue to share updated tips, tricks and resources.

We regularly update the course materials and you'll continue to receive all of those new lessons and resources as well.

In the event of exceptional circumstances preventing you from attending or completing the 8-week immersive, our team can transfer you to another cohort at no additional cost.

For each of our bootcamps, you can choose to pay the tuition in full upfront or pay a deposit and the balance in interest-free installments. Our payment plans are customised to suit each student, so for more details send us a message via live chat or email hello@instituteofcode.com to discuss it with a course advisor.

Yes! As soon as you enroll (either with a $250 deposit or paying in full) you will receive instant access to the pre-coursework inside our custom-built learning hub, where you can start learning right away! We have over a dozen tutorials ready for you to start learning right away even before your bootcamp start date. You'll also have instant access to the discussions, community and mentor support.

Our photography digital bootcamps is a zero-to-hero and you don't need any previous experience. We have tutorials and support starting from the absolute beginning through to advanced skills and building a successful business. Most of our past students had no previous experience when they joined the program, but even if you already do have some experience there is still plenty to learn.

For our Bali bootcamps, these are advanced programs so some previous experience or past attendence in our digital bootcamp is required. If you aren't sure if it's the right level for you, then reach out to our team via live chat and we'll help you figure it out.

Generally speaking unless you already consider yourself an expert in the technical skills and have built a profitable photography business with a steady flow of clients, there will be plenty of content for you to learn.

Students often ask if they need to own a manual camera for the photography digital bootcamp and while it's definitely recommended, it's not required - 95% of the lessons could be completed with a phone as your camera and you can focus on the other aspects of photography (like composition, lighting, posing, etc). Of course if you decide to pursue a career in photography you will likely need to invest in professional equipment at some point, but we walk you through that in the gear guide lessons and a full set-up can be as little as $500. Since you have lifetime access to all the course materials, some students choose to focus on learning the skills first, and then investing in gear in the future once they are ready to start landing clients.

For the advanced Bali bootcamp a camera is required, but if you don't have one we can help you to rent one for as little as $100 for the duration of the bootcamp

Yes! The business module makes up almost a 1/4 of our photography digital bootcamp, and we also weave this topic through the entire course - with practical case studies, examples, and walk-throughs. We provide all the templates & resources you need to hit the ground running and start your own creative business (no cookie-cutters here, we teach you how to find a niche and business structure that works for your unique circumstances) and we give you one-on-one feedback for your own 12-month digital strategy.

And of course for our advanced accelerators - the Business of Photography bootcamp & the Bali Bootcamp business skills make up the majority of the course.

Indonesia is official open to tourism again, and the only requiment for entry is to either be double-vaccinated (no time limit, and no need for a booster) or to have a medical excemption letter from your doctor as to why you aren't able to be vaccinated. There is no quarantine or covid test required for entry. Citizens from 72 countries are able to enter Bali with a Visa on Arrival for 500,000 IDR (or the equivalent of $35 USD) without needing to apply for a visa in advance. You can view the full list of countries and requirements here.

We know that some of you are concerned about whether right now is a responsible time to be travelling internationally, but as out team has lived on the island throughout the past 7 years we can confidently tell you that there has never been a better time to travel to Bali - and the balinese people are excited for tourism to return to the island, especially given all of the jobs it provides. We hire at least 90% local staff for our bootcamps, and support local businesses in every way including sourcing all the fresh fruit & vegetables for the bootcamps direct from local farmers.

Bali has an vaccination rate of over 90%, and most people also have some form of natural immunity from the various strains of covid that have been present here so Covid is no longer a major threat to local populations or visiting guests.

We'll be officially launching this course very soon, so if you want to be on the waitlist send us a message on live chat and let us know that you're interested! If you enroll in the 2022 Bali photography bootcamp, you'll receive free access to the business of photography bootcamp worth $2450.
