This course is designed for students looking for an experimental, creative and critical environment in which to engage with photography.
Year 1 looks at fundamental photographic principles and practice, and you will develop an awareness of photographic practice within the creative industries. You will gain practical and technical skills to enable you to apply tools and methods to a defined problem and will work with others as members of a group. You will learn to research visually and analytically and evaluate your work with tutor guidance. Modules cover darkroom, studio and basic principles of digital imaging.
As you progress to Year 2 you will develop a detailed knowledge of major theories relating to photographic practice, and a deeper awareness of social and ethical implications for the photographic industry. You will negotiate activities with tutors, and will be able to analyse, synthesise and evaluate work more independently.
In Year 3 you will become more confident in identifying and defining complex visual solutions and have the freedom to define your own area of practice. You will apply appropriate knowledge and practical skills to produce your own body of work. You will be able to initiate, manage and critically evaluate your work and that of others, and demonstrate an informed knowledge of contemporary professional practice and the issues and debates that provide a context. The year ends with a public exhibition of portfolio work.
