Photography is a career that could take you in many directions – from the commercial to the artistic to the academic – with each path looking for photographers with a unique way of interpreting our communities and environment.

On this course you’ll learn the core practical skills and techniques you need to produce professional-standard photography, from developing your ideas and understanding your audience, to solving creative problems through collaboration and individual practice. Working with our industry-standard equipment and facilities, you’ll be given a choice of pathway including still, moving, digital, and analogue images, creating projects built around themes like identity, place, documentary, and fictions. You’ll also get the opportunity to work with professional clients on live briefs and enter international photography competitions.
