In this course you will study a range of themes working from still life to the natural world and experimental imagery. You will combine practical creation of your own images with critical studies of the work of photographers throughout the past century. You will develop and improve your knowledge and ability to take and enhance imagery digitally and in some cases using conventional wet photography. The majority of the course is taught on Apple iMac computers incorporating the use of Photoshop CS 5.1, although all will get the opportunity to work in the darkroom.
As with all the Arts disciplines, it is expected that the A/S student will work alongside students following a full A Level and will take an exam if not following the full A2 course. Students are encouraged to become independent in order that they develop into inquiring, resourceful and independent students of Photography.
A portfolio of A Level Photography can give you the opportunity to pursue degree level courses in photography and/or lens based media.
B grade in Art and Design at GCSE.
C grade in English at GCSE.
If Photography, Graphics or Art have not been studied to GCSE, an interview with portfolio may be required.
Possession of a good quality digital camera is expected.
