Course Description

The course is ideal for school or college students who are interested in photography or who might wish to use photography as part of their studies.

Analogue (film) photography experience is not necessary and an understanding of Photoshop or editing skills is useful but not essential.

On this course, you will:

  • explore the city through photography using digital and analogue cameras
  • learn how to edit your photographs using Photoshop
  • make a short zine of your work.

What will you gain?

By the end of the course, you’ll be able to demonstrate that you’re competent in photography and editing your work.

You’ll also have a set of images and photo zine to enhance your portfolio.

Where you'll learn: You will be based in the School of Art and Design on the City Campus.

You’ll find full-size photography studios and comprehensive Mac editing suites with software for photography editing including Adobe Creative Cloud.

You’ll also have access to our library to use outside of your short course; whilst you can’t reserve or take away books, you are welcome to use them as a resource for research and referencing.

Level: Open to all

Entry requirement: You should have an enthusiasm for photography and the arts, and an interest in developing your creative and technical skills.
