Photography A level at Hills Road Sixth Form College

Course description

Gain an informed understanding of the photographic art form and the world around you.

Why choose Photography?

Studying photography will give you a greater understanding of the world we live in, and your place within it. You will be encouraged to explore subject themes that you are personally interested in to ensure that you are always on a creative journey that is meaningful to you. We actively encourage individual ideas and experimentation with one to one discussion and feedback taking place during lesson time. You will have one main teacher. However, there is flexibility for you to try a range of methods of working, and the staff operate as a team to share knowledge and to support you. All the staff are practising artists and have a wide range of specialist interests and expertise.
There is also opportunity to take part in a number of local study visits and one abroad. Recent destinations have included Naples, Venice and Paris.

We have a wide range of resources available including:
- Photographic studio and location lighting equipment
- Range of film and digital camera equipment
- Digital editing computer suite
- Photographic darkroom

The course is essential in preparing you for degree level study, but it is also ideal if you have a love of photography and wish to develop your own skills further. No previous knowledge is required for this course, but a keen interest in the subject is a must!

"A level Photography has been a great opportunity for me to constantly experiment and push myself. I am always learning new things and improving each week. I am excited to see how my work progresses." Emily Rogers
