Summary

This 1-year, full-time course is for those who enjoy being creative and have a keen interest in capturing moments in time. Photography is woven into the fabric of our daily lives: from advertising images, through editorial and promotional photography, to professionally promoting yourself on social media. This course introduces you to the skills that you need to frame, edit and produce pictures that tell stories. We have highly skilled, passionate and practicing photographers who will guide you in your practical work and studies, enabling you to build a portfolio of work. You will be introduced to: • Digital photography and editing • Analogue photography and darkroom techniques • Studio photography • Live action/sports photography • Film and animation • Experimental photography, e.g. pinhole cameras and photograms • Contextual studies

What do I need to join?

You will need to show passion, enthusiasm, commitment and have a portfolio of work to show at interview. You will need 4 GCSEs at grade 3 (D) or above, English and/or Maths are desirable (but not mandatory), or a Level 1 Diploma in Art & Design with merit or distinction grades, and a proven record of attendance and engagement in English and maths.

How will I know how I am doing?

Project work is set with structured, achievable targets that are organised around practical assessment.

You will also discuss project work through group critiques, with verbal feedback from tutors and peers. Regular tutorials and reviews will take place with your personal tutor to discuss targets and progress.

Maths & English

A key requirement for obtaining many jobs is to achieve a good standard of English and maths. Therefore learners that do not yet have a GCSE grade 4 (C) will be enrolled on either a GCSE or functional skills programme alongside their course.

Employability

We have a working studio where learners produce images for various clients, helping them to gain valuable experience and confidence in producing images to a professional standard.

Work Experience

Students are supported to seek opportunities relevant to their specialism to experience a working environment, whether this is a live project set by industry, a creative competition or working for a local company.

What can I do next?

Level 3 Photography, Level 3 Art & Design or any other Level 3 course at the College, as long as a merit or above is achieved.

What are my career options?

A career in the arts is diverse and can include further study in photography, film-making or animation. You could find yourself as a fashion, documentary, portrait, landscape or wedding photographer or film-maker in the future. Many photographers become self-employed.
