Photography (with Foundation Year) - University of the West of England

Images are everywhere. Studying photography enables you to understand the language of images and develop your 'visual voice' to communicate effectively and with confidence. Becoming a photography professional opens doors to a wide range of careers within a global landscape of creative industries. BA(Hons) Photography offers a vibrant, collaborative environment, modern facilities, supportive workshop instruction and expert input, all underpinned by theory and critique. Explore traditional tools and the latest technology in our production and fabrication workshops. Work across all areas of the discipline, from editorial and documentary to fashion, advertising and fine art. Work to briefs set and assessed by external individuals and organisations, including photographers, filmmakers, publishers, clothing labels, 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, National Portrait Gallery and the Tate.
