The masterclass provides a chance to experience two contrary methods of photographic image making. Using studio lighting designs we explore the use of traditional large format cameras alongside high end digital cameras.

The workshops use an instant form of paper printing using darkroom developing as a means producing unique paper prints, whilst a contrary live computer tethering in an adjacent studio allows the photographers to see on screen results of their technique.

Contrasting contemporary and traditional methods of the review and testing process are at the heart of this masterclass. Good photographic practice requires precision and refined technique. These two controlled investigations provide an opportunity to use a variety of equipment, practice opposing techniques and to analyse the strengths of both practices, historic and current.


Students who complete a masterclass will be awarded a reduced offer of up to 24 UCAS points*.
