Photography Course Content:
You will be introduced to the technical skills and theoretical issues that are fundamental to photographic practice.
Our aim is to build a specialist knowledge of photography and a broad understanding of visual culture.
We have an extensive range of equipment and facilities and you will be encouraged to freely experiment with these in any and all genres of the medium.
Your individual creativity and personal ambition are at the centre of our photography course's philosophy rather than an imposed ‘house style’.
The course explores contemporary photographic practice within a broad cultural context, and is underpinned by historical and critical approaches to the medium of photography.
The curriculum allows for a flexible approach to image-making in relation to both subject and resource, and you will be required to position and critically articulate your photographic work in relation to your audience.
You will be required to engage in a series of projects that address contemporary practice, challenge your creativity and provide grounding in studio lighting, printing and other photographic techniques.
The course also allows you to consider how your developed expertise might ultimately lead to professional opportunities.
