Course description

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.

Modules

Year 1: Introduction to study in higher education; fashion photography; image construction; introduction to cultural and historical studies; capturing fashion; collaborative practice (fashion spreads). Year 2: Cultural and historical studies; fashion interactions; professional development (fashion photography); research methods for photography; future choices.

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
It's been a difficult recession for this subject, so unemployment rates are currently looking quite high overall, with salaries on the lower side – and recovery may be long and slow for these graduates. But even despite the figures, most graduates are working after six months, and 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 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.
