This is a highly practical, hands-on course in Photography designed to give the learner not only the ability to take and manipulate photographs but also to give them the experience of what it is to be a photographer. There will be many field trips and much practical work. There will be some early morning starts outside normal class times and some evening shoots. There will be at least one foreign trip - normally Edinburgh.
A portion of the year will be spent in the photographic portrait studio and learners will get to understand and operate studio lights and equipment. A number of genres of photography will be explored such as portraiture, landscape, documentary and street photography. As well as the practical, there will be an exploration of the theory and referencing to the work of other photographers.
