Photography

Photography involves using your creative and practical skills.

You can often pick up photography at A Level/Level 3 without having studied it as a GCSE subject.

There are lots of different types of photography; portraits and weddings, landscapes, still life, documentary journalism, fashion photography, experimental, multimedia and moving image.

On a photography A Level/Level 3 you will learn how to use photographic equipment such as; cameras, tripods and lighting. You will also explore traditional dark room processing as well as using digital technology such as Photoshop and Illustrator. You will also be using drawing and sketch books too.

Photography combines well with other subjects such as; art and design, media, graphics, and business.

As well as a career in photography, this subject can take you into careers in a range of creative areas from graphic design, web design, animation, advertising, games and film design, visual FX,  and art curation.
