Commercial Photography

On this course we aim to develop a visually expressive generation of fashion, documentary, editorial, portrait and advertising photographers. The course aims to provide a wide range of undergraduate students with the opportunity to develop a specialist career in photography, by nurturing technically proficient and professionally astute photography students as they mature into critically aware creative decision makers. The commercial world relies on powerful imagery to give news stories and brand messages impact, and you could be a part of it. Our students go on to create images for international magazines and newspapers, picture desks, ad agencies, fashion houses, and more. You’ll gain a broad understanding of photographic practice and theory as we guide you towards a career in the creative industries. You’ll graduate confident in the creative and critical visual language needed to work with teams in your chosen field. Employment prospects are very good – even before you graduate. In recent years many students have won commissions and been published while still on the course. Whether it’s socially concerned documentary or dramatic contemporary fashion imagery, commercial photography has the ability to communicate its message. On this course we aim to produce the next generation of visually expressive, fashion, documentary, editorial, portrait and advertising photographers. We’re looking for people who want to push creative boundaries, challenge industry perceptions and set the agenda for future generations of commercial photographers. You’ll gain a broad understanding of photographic practice and theory as we guide you towards a career in photography and the creative industries. You’ll enter the industry confidently, invested in the creative and critical visual language needed to effectively collaborate within your field of practice.
