What is the Course about?
In addition to Higher Photography the main purpose of this course is to provide you with the studio experience that you will need to take you forward to further study or commercial Photography.
You’ll be designing light set-ups and putting them to use, preparing subjects and controlling every aspect of the shoot, not just the camera. The units included are:
- Photography: Basic Camera Techniques (F8KH 12)
- Studio Photography: An Introduction (FR2D 12)
- Photography: Portraiture Skills (F51P 12)
You will also gain some experience in digital post-production techniques and organisation in the unit:
- Digital Photography: Workflow and Creative Manipulation (FR2H 12)
This course is essential if you are serious about continuing your studies, and potentially building a career, in Photography.
What do i need?
Preferably you will be sitting or achieved your Higher Photography at the time of completing the course. If you have your own camera equipment this would be an advantage but not essential.
If you have a keen interest in Photography your application would be considered. Other than that, a good eye and desire to stick lovely things in front of it.
Once your application has been approved by your school, we will contact you to ask you to send to us between 8 – 12 images showcasing a variety of your Higher Photography or similar work which, along with your personal statement, will form the basis of our selection process for the course.
How will i be assessed?
Project based, continuous assessment.
From here you could apply to University Photography degree courses around the country or better still join us full time to study HNC and on into HND.
