Photography at Aston Academy
Photography is one of the few truly universal forms of communication that crosses both social and cultural boundaries, and is apparent in many aspects of our everyday life. As an A Level Photography student you will be encouraged to explore your creativity and use your imagination, as well as being challenged in problem solving and to think philosophically about how and why photographs are created. You will also develop a solid skill set, becoming proficient in the use of Photoshop as well as Digital and Darkroom photography.
5 GCSEs at grade C or above, including Maths, English Language and Art and Design – if you do not have a GCSE in the Visual Arts, you will be expected to provide a portfolio of work which demonstrates your skills and interests.
