Photography at All Saints School

Course description

Students will be introduced to a variety of experiences that explore both chemical and digital photography. The exciting programmes of study offer the opportunity to learn the basics of photography whilst exploring a range of processes. The course is both challenging practically and intellectually. Areas of study focus on: portraiture, still-life, documentary, image manipulation, and fashion.

Students explore the use of cameras, lenses, filters and lighting, and gain an understanding of techniques related to the development and printing of photographic imagery. The study of photographers both past and present plays an important role on the course. The course is a two year programme of study. The first year is aimed at learning how to explore and develop ideas whilst exploring the work of a variety of artists and differing approached to the subject. At A2 the second year, students are encouraged to develop a more personal response. Each year is assessed on two units of work. The second unit of each year is an externally set controlled test.

The course successfully prepares students for direct entry onto a degree.
