This course is perfect if you want a creative grounding in taking photographs and exploring the art of displaying images on the page, both digitally and using more traditional methods.
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.
