Are you passionate about photography? Would you like to develop your skills to a professional level? This course gives you an advanced practical understanding of photography. You will learn the fundamental techniques, as well as being able to specialise with a range of optional units. Have a look at an online magazine produced by our students: https://www.joomag.com/magazine/18percent-april-2016/0025720001457143022 The first year delivers an intense programme which builds your skills across a range of areas. This combines the traditional values of professional practice – such as fine printing, studio management and critical analysis – with the modern necessity of full digital workflow. In the second year, you will select units to suit your individual skills and interests, with a key element of the second year programme being the specialist practice module. You are able to consolidate skills built from year one to support a specific interest or pathway in photography such as documentary photography, commercial photography, digital photography, analogue photography or any other proposal that meets the module criteria. At the end of the course, you will have a comprehensive portfolio of printed work alongside a digital platform representing their work, such as a web page or blog. It is expected that you will have participated in an off-site exhibition and will have designed and self-published at least two books. All of the projects are underpinned by an element of critical research and analysis. For every 10 credits, students should engage with around 100 notional hours of learning. This will be approximately 30% direct learning contact, 70% independent student learning.
