Photography - Leeds Trinity University

Do you want to turn your passion for photography into your career? Photography is designed to develop your technical and creative abilities through professional practice. You'll develop skills in four key areas: professional photographic practice, collaborative project work, aesthetics and digital imaging. You'll explore photographic technique, and studio practice, learning how to process and edit images. You'll look at photography on location and how to professionally curate and exhibit photography, as well as how to promote and publish it. We'll also guide you through key legal, ethical and cultural aspects of photography, applying these to taking, editing, exhibiting or selling photographic images. Throughout the degree, you'll establish your skills in commercial and professional contexts by working with professional photographers. You'll complete professional work placements in your first and second year and you'll work with other Photography students, who will commission and edit work from you. In your final year, you'll have the opportunity to extend your professional understanding in our year-long Professional Learning through Work module, which involves working with an employer on a live photography project. You'll have the option to study abroad during your degree, spending time at one of our international partner universities that offer Photography degrees. By the time you graduate, you'll have had the chance to develop a professional portfolio that includes a range of creative, commercial and documentary photography, as well as the entrepreneurial and collaborative skills that will be attractive to a wide range of employers. **Placement opportunities** ​We are one of only a few UK universities to build professional work placements into every degree. You'll complete two professional work placements, which will give you the chance to graduate with up to three months' professional work experience without having to take a sandwich year out. You'll complete a five-week placement in your first year and a six-week placement in your second year. We'll work with you to find a placement that matches your career aspirations, using our extensive links with organisations in the commercial photographic sector. **Graduate opportunities** ​You'll be well-prepared for a career in professional photography, photojournalism, PR and event management, as well as a range of other professional careers.
