Based on over 50 years of experience in educating photographers and film makers, the programme is a careful balance between technical mastery, personal experimentation and creative development, giving you the best possible foundation for a successful career in photography.
You will work in fully-equipped studios, using large and medium format cameras. You will also have the opportunity to use the latest digital imaging software, alongside more traditional techniques for post-production work, thus increasing the opportunities for creative solutions to contemporary communication challenges.
You will undertake a wide range of projects, including professionally guided assignments, research into the industry, as well as the production of a professional style portfolio. You will also be encouraged to participate in national competitions such as those organised by The Association of Photographers, Fuji Film and the International Photo Imaging Education Association, in which the College has a highly successful record.
