Course Description

Students will extend their knowledge of photographic practice within a visual art context. The main focus of this course is the production of a three panel folio submission. Students select an individual theme for study, based on their strengths.

Students will develop their ability to think critically about photography as picture-making and explore reasons why photographs are made and valued. Students will extend their skills in a range of processes and techniques including studio workshops, with an emphasis on digital photography and the use of Adobe Creative Suite software.

Students will be encouraged to enter the scholarship examination based on their internal assessment grades.
