“What I like about photographs is that they capture a moment that’s gone forever, impossible to reproduce”
Photography is as much about the art of storytelling as it is about the creation of images and on this course, your creativity will grow to truly inspire your work.
You will be guided through that process by our team of award-winning Photography lecturers, with impressive career backgrounds and a passion for the craft of Photography.
This one year, full-time course is for you if you want to develop a career in photography or to progress to a related higher education course.
