Subject

Photography

This course is unique in the sense that potential candidates may approach the study of photography with no previous experience within the medium, subject to relevant entry requirements. It could provide a cross over from other artistic backgrounds and we encourage an individual approach and links to industry and professional practice.

We provide instruction, demonstration, guidance and personal tuition in the practical application of photography. The course incorporates commercially driven aspects of the photographic industry with an artistic and analytical approach. Included are technical seminars, workshops and demonstrations in practical application and theory. The core modules enable students to pursue specific pathways to suit their individual needs and aspirations.

The course consists of three years full-time study. Year 1 deals with technical theory and practice as well as critical theory. Students are encouraged to develop individually, as appropriate to their ambitions. Year 2 takes a more self-directed focus, allowing the individual to develop a specific style and approach. Year 3 sees the development of key skills and applications developed in previous two years with an aim to specialise and hone professional practices and culminates in a self-initiated final exhibition and the production of an individual portfolio.

All aspects of photographic practice are considered with both technical and theoretical application applied during the study programme. Emphasis is placed on the need to navigate the spaces in which photography operates on both commercial and artistic levels within contemporary image making.
