Course summary

Our exciting and vibrant new FdA Photography programme, is built upon the years of existing good practice to be found in the Arts and Media Department at Cornwall College Camborne. Photography is a popular, challenging and competitive subject. As such our new programme has been designed to ensure our graduates are tenacious, flexible and excited by the new opportunities that are available in photography and are fully aware of the niches that can be carved within the creative industries. To ensure a dynamic student experience, as a FdA Photography student you will be located within the existing BA (Hons)/ FdA Art & Design Practice studio spaces, sharing a range of facilities including an HE Common Room. You will also enjoy your own subject specific teaching areas, including a photography studio and dark room facilities. Smaller teaching groups are a positive element of the programme, ensuring you receive the expert attention that you need to become a successful photographer. However, the programme cohorts will be large enough for you to collaborate with fellow students and undertake group projects. Opportunities will exist to support you if your interest lies in photo-journalism or contemporary fashion, or if you wish to develop specialisms in the use of either digital or conventional photographic technology. Photography specific visits and trips will take part throughout the programme as part of the curriculum. Location photography shoots in Cornwall, in both countryside and coastal regions, will also form part of the programme. Upon completion of the FdA Photography, subject to interview, you can choose to progress on to the BA (Hons) Art & Design Practice (top-up degree) programme at Cornwall College Camborne Possible Career options: Freelance Photographer Photojournalist Camera Operator Re toucher Fine Art Photographer Picture Editor Fashion Photographer Stylist Production Manager Moving Image Editor Studio Manager Sports Photographer Commercial Art Gallery Manager Brand Ambassador/Sales Promotion Executives Multimedia Specialist Commercial Photographer Community Arts Worker Forensic Photographer Advertising Art Director Wildlife Natural History Photographer Marketing Assistant Web Editor Cornwall College University Centre offers a unique and fulfilling university experience with small class sizes, allowing for personal attention from tutors and a strong sense of community among students.
