Photography A Level is a specialist course exploring the deep craft of Photography. It involves work in black and white and colour photography. Your work will also use both digital and darkroom photography and there will be computer-based work as well as handmade development work.

 

Students also have opportunities to work in video, film, installation and animation. You will study the work of other artists, designers and photographers, including work from primary sources during visits to galleries and museums.

 

Our Photography course gives you the opportunity to develop a personal and structured approach to project work, by exploring ideas and the work of other photographers. You will also develop your critical faculties, in both practical and written work, and acquire a high level of composition and presentation skills. There are many careers open to students with a photography qualification, including professional photography, journalism, arts administration, advertising, fashion, television, communications, art direction, interactive design and teaching.
