Photography has the ability to reach a global audience presenting information concisely that can delight, educate, express a view or record a fragment of time. Our degree is designed to prepare photographers for professional roles in a wide range of specialist areas. We live in a visual age and photography, in all its forms, is at its core. Virtually everyone has a camera and therefore has the ability to take, post and view photography. The capacity to transcend this basic ability and communicate concise visual statements that engage audiences and represent meanings becomes possible through your participation on the course and our careful guidance. Our Photography degree offers a pathway of visual self-discovery leading to a professional career in this dynamic industry. We offer a supportive, market-aware environment in which you can explore different photographic genres such as documentary, editorial, advertising, portraiture, architectural, landscape and fine art photography. We aim to develop your knowledge of contemporary photographic practice, including digital media, as well as the more traditional photographic processes. Your wider study of visual arts theory will help develop your visual language and understanding. We’ll encourage you to explore, evaluate and draw inspiration from historical, philosophical and cultural influences and think critically about your own work and that of others. We’ll also focus on helping you to develop career-relevant skills. Creativity, technical knowledge, problem solving, time management, sales, marketing and customer care skills are all essential for success as a professional photographer.
