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.
You'll work in fully equipped on-campus studios which include tethered Macs, industry-standard lighting and backdrops, a props store, product shooting table and changing room. Our comprehensive dark room features eight enlargers and printing and processing facilities. We also offer free equipment loans to students through our Media Centre so you don't need to worry about the cost of high-spec professional DSLR and analogue cameras and accessories.
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.
