COURSE DETAILS
Photographs and images are, as everyone knows, part of everyday life. This wide ranging and innovative course will give you the opportunity to engage with the language of photography and imagery via a series of assignments specifically written to broaden your outlook. The list of potential subjects is almost endless, as are the learning prospects on this course. You will explore the full range of darkroom and digital techniques (including moving image and camera-less photography), giving you a thorough understanding of the possibilities of their uses. Alongside a technical understanding, research and experimentation is greatly encouraged. You will also explore the work of both commercial and fine art photographers, typically, through educational visits, live briefs and visiting photographers. We are intending to provide a range of work experience projects for students to gain valuable professional experience, these include local galleries Pineapple Black, Auxilliary Gallery and Psyche Clothing Store. The course will expand your imagination and skills through workshops delivered by industry professionals, whilst getting full support for progression into higher education and degree courses or the many varied roles within the photographic industry.
