Our foundation course will give you a strong grounding to experience life through the camera lens to advance your studies to degree level.
You’ll learn all the essential photography basics - how to use a variety of cameras, both digital and film, how to make creative images, work in a studio and on location, and how to print your photos to a high standard.
In addition, you’ll explore historical and contemporary photographers and images to encourage you to develop your own style and flourish as a photographer ready for year one of the degree course.
Former students have gone into a range of photographic careers, become freelance photographers, curators and editors and some have secured solo exhibitions in art galleries just months after graduating.
On this course you will...
- Develop your photographic and editing skills while experimenting during workshops and outdoor activities.
- Work with students across the creative arts, collaborating on projects and exploring new mediums.
- Be taught by industry experts with experience working freelance and within creative organisations.
- Have the opportunity to exhibit your work publically alongside the work of classmates across the arts.
