Photography at Cardinal Newman Catholic School

Course description

In a multi-media world our understanding of visual imagery is increasingly important and can offer students a varied and rewarding future. Possible careers include fashion, medical and product photography as well as possibilities within new media. Students interested in a career in photography have successfully gone on to study further, at both foundation and degree level.

This course will guide you through the basics of photography covering both digital and darkroom techniques. It will allow you to approach your imagery in a variety of creative ways, utilising new processes and equipment developing perceptive and discriminatory responses to photographic themes. You will develop informed critical skills through class tuition, discussion and independent research. The work of photographers and their historical and social context is integral to the course and is studied both within the classroom and through gallery visits both locally and nationally. As the course progresses students become more independent and highly skilled, culminating in the completion of a rewarding personal project in Year 13.
