This LCF course allows you to study fashion photography as both a practical and cultural discipline. The course is academically rigorous, with exploration of analytical and critical approaches to photographic imagery, together with the study of the ideology, politics and context of fashion. You will learn the technical skills of photography, including digital image production and manipulation, whilst exploring images from haute couture to street style, from advertising campaigns to designer look-books, from art gallery to shop window, and from fanzine to glossy magazine, and you will analyse and critique global style and the fashion industry. Industry-led projects form part of the course, and you will experience location and studio shooting, working in teams with stylists, make-up artists, model agencies and art directors. You will graduate as a professional and original image maker. You will be based in Lime Grove in Shepherd's Bush, just west of Holland Park and Notting Hill.
