Photography AS/A Level at Finchley Catholic High School

Course description

In an image-dominated society, this course shows you both how to take effective photos and analyse the imagery that surrounds you every day. The course covers the history of and current practices in photography. It experiments with Digital photography, and encourages the transformation of photographs into pieces of art. The course develops critical skills and contextual awareness to aid the production of your own portfolios. The AS is mainly practical, while the A2 also requires more substantive research and written analysis.
The course will appeal to artistic individuals with a desire to explore culture, society and identity through the execution of photography; individuals who love to create, experiment, communicate visually and use their imaginations as a tool. Besides photography itself, there are many careers in which these skills are assets, such as design, marketing and art direction.
