You’ll learn connections between image, colour, page layout, typography, design, plus how your work is perceived by a wider audience. You will work in our dedicated photographic studios, darkrooms, and iMac computer studios.
You can expect to also cover working with digital SLR cameras, studio and experimental photography.
