Photography at Brixham College

Course description

Photography has become so much a part of 20th Century living that we often allow the barrage of images to wash over us. However, Photography is an extraordinary medium, one of not just immediate and gratifying aesthetics but of meanings, codes and hidden messages. As students you are encouraged to learn ways to read them but we can, and do, become producers ourselves.

There are now few questions regarding the importance of media and lens-based studies and their relevance to preparing young people as citizens, consumers and as creative contributors to 21st century culture. At AS Level students will be introduced to a variety of experiences, employing a range of media, processes and techniques. These include: black and white film based photography and darkroom processes, digital photography, image manipulation and contextual studies.

At A2, students are required to build upon the knowledge, understanding and skills gained in the AS with greater depth of study
