A-Level Art and Design - Photography at Winstanley College

Course description

Our Photography course is designed to allow your creativity to flourish through a brief or theme. This can span across fashion, portrait, landscape, the built environment, surface pattern, and texture: there is no end to the possible areas you can explore.

Each individual’s project is tailored to incorporate personal ideas and interests and is devised with a specialist tutor in a supportive and enriching environment. Tutors have experience from industry and Fine Art backgrounds allowing you to access to a wealth of knowledge.

Throughout the course you will be submersed in various technical aspects of photography, including traditional darkroom practice, studio lighting, shutter speeds, apertures and ‘Photoshop’. You will visualise your work in a sketchbook to show your creative and technical development which will certainly lead to a portfolio of work you can be proud of.

Underpinning your ideas will be the engagement with artists, photographers and designers who inspire your imagination to create unique, exciting works of art. This will enable you to explore beyond the surface of an image interrogating its meaning, aesthetic and worth. Through critical analysis you will make informed decisions within your personal work that will evidence your increasing knowledge and skill of appropriate photographic processes and concepts to truly fulfil creative potential.
