A Level Art & Design (Photography)

Duration: 2 years
Course Level: Level 3
Assessment: 40% Awarding Body, 60% College
Entry Requirements: Standard 'A' Level entry requirements apply
For this course you must also have a grade 4 in Art or Photography. If you have not gained a GCSE in Art and / or Photography you may still be accepted onto the course if you can produce a portfolio of work.

You will explore a broad range of processes and techniques, learning new skills in the traditional darkroom as well as our fully equipped, digital photo studio. You will begin by following a detailed introductory programme designed to teach you all the essentials you will need to unleash your creativity. You will also gain awareness of the work of many other photographers, artists and designers.

Your Course

Once you have gained a solid, technical grounding you will start to explore areas such as:

  • Portraiture
  • Still life and product photography
  • Documentary photography and photojournalism
  • Fashion photography
  • Experimental imagery
  • Multimedia and photographic installations
  • Moving image (video, film, animation)

You will learn about the visual elements photographers use in their work and consider the creative power of lens-based imagery. Challenges will require you to respond to issues in a very personal way. At all times you will be developing a deep understanding of cameras, lenses, lighting equipment and exposure techniques.

You will need to be committed to an intensive course of study and prepared to devote a lot of time to the production of high-quality work. This course can be taken alongside an ‘A’ Level in Art and Design.

Your Future
This course provides an excellent foundation if you wish to continue to study Art and Design/Photography at HE level. You might consider continuing your studies at Selby College on our HNC/D in Art and Design where you can take your photographic skills even further and reach a really professional standard of work.
