BA(Hons) Photography is based in the city of Bristol, a vibrant arts and media community that will challenge and inspire you. The course offers a vibrant, collaborative environment, modern facilities, supportive workshop instruction and expert input, all underpinned by theory and critique. We’ll encourage you to transform your broad-based photographic practice into an individual visual style. On graduation, you’ll have a unique and compelling body of work for the marketplace. Work to briefs set and assessed by external individuals and organisations, including photographers, filmmakers, publishers, clothing labels, product designers, theatre groups, musicians and festivals. Attend talks from creative professionals and visit photographers' studios, agencies and picture libraries. Showcase your work to talent scouts and potential employers at the final year Creative Industries Degree Show and graduate with an impressive portfolio of work. Our graduates work in fields from editorial and fashion to movie stills and medical photography. Employers include the BBC, Sunday Times Magazine and the Tate. Past students have assisted photographers such as Martin Parr, Steve McCurry, Zed Nelson and Tim Walker, and have been published and exhibited in FT Weekend, Vogue Italia, Oh Comely, The Photographers Gallery, National Portrait Gallery and the Tate. Graduates have also established important collectives and exhibiting networks such as One Giant Arm, Loupe Magazine and Splash and Grab.
