This course will develop your knowledge and understanding of the lens-based fashion industry, and encourage an experimental, creative approach to produce visually striking images and films. Our vibrant and collaborative learning environment will promote the exchange of ideas, whilst supporting your engagement with a diverse range of fashion practices. Through the production of fashion film you will investigate the relationship of moving images to the photographic still image. You will deepen your knowledge of stylistic and aesthetic approaches within fashion imagery, and have opportunities to collaborate with designers, stylists, art directors, make-up artists and models to produce fashion images. We encourage you to take on new challenges and creative risks in response to briefs. You will be able to pursue genre specific areas of interest and be guided in the production of a portfolio that showcases contemporary fashion practices. You will have access to a range of industry-standard digital equipment and technologies, including 35mm, medium and large-format cameras, medium-format digital camera backs, digital SLRs and video equipment. You’ll use our fully equipped lighting studios, infinity cove, and specialist darkroom facilities. We have colour-film processors, film scanners, digital video cameras and edit suites, and Mac suites that feature industry-standard software. We invite internationally renowned speakers to give an insight into current industry practices and offer opportunities to engage with external practitioners. In the past our photography students have been on study visits to Paris, Milan and New York, plus day-trips within the UK.
