Course description

Coleg Sir Gâr - Carmarthenshire College has an established reputation for facilitating the creative development of art and design students. This new course has evolved in response to contemporary art and design practice, culture and industry. This is a broad course encompassing the fact that photography spans both professional design and fine art practice. The course encourages creativity and develops your photographic, visual and technical skills based on your interests. It will introduce you to the diversity of photographic and creative techniques (digital and silver-based) used for commercial and personal practice. Throughout the course, students will develop a personal strategy for developing a career through photography. Students will be given opportunities to explore areas such as digital photography that recognises the new digital literacy in visual language for the professional photographer. Learners will use cameras as capture devices for studio and location imaging for editorial, fashion and advertising clients and develop creative image editing skills, whilst also learning retouching and digital delivery. Additionally the Welsh landscape will reflect the cultural values of traditional and contemporary imaging in Wales. This will encourage and enable you to look at the Welsh landscape as a site of change from the social, historical, industrial and the beautiful. Your practice is supported by an integrated theory programme enabling you to work confidently and professionally within the context of photography. The School of Creative Arts provides a friendly and supportive environment for students to explore their options and develop their individual style and potential.

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
A few years ago graduates from this subject were having a very hard time but things have improved a lot thanks to our active media, film and photographic industries - much the most common employers for this group. The most common jobs are in the arts — as photographers, audio-visual technicians, operators and designers, as directors, as artists and as graphic designers. Training in presenting sound and graphics is useful in other industries as well, so you can find graduates in journalism, in advertising, in business management, in events management and in web design and IT. Be aware that freelancing and self-employment is common in the arts, as are what is termed 'portfolio careers' — having several part-time jobs or commissions at once.
