Subject

Photography

This course offers opportunities to engage with diverse and innovative approaches to fashion image-making. It will develop your knowledge and understanding of the lens-based fashion industry and encourage an experimental, creative approach to produce visually striking photographs and films.

Our vibrant and collaborative learning environment will promote the exchange of ideas, and offers ‘hands on’ industry experience in the form of live briefs, publishing and exhibition opportunities, educational trips and commissions. Collaborating with students across the University and with wider creative communities locally, nationally and internationally is supported.

Your programme of study is informed by current and emerging industry contexts and practices, and you will work with highly skilled practitioners and specialist tutors, responding to exciting projects and briefs that develop your creativity, professionalism, preparation for the work place and offer real-life learning opportunities.

The course integrates creative practical projects with analysis of historical, cultural and social contexts of fashion image-making and you will be encouraged to take an experimental and questioning approach to your practice. We invite internationally renowned speakers to give an insight into current industry practices and offer opportunities to engage with external practitioners. In the past our students have been on study visits to Paris, Milan and New York, plus day-trips within the UK. Course related educational visits/trips experiences can take a variety of formats including physical and virtual.

Modules

Year One — You will focus on the development of your creative potential through a range of briefs and tasks that integrate the acquisition of technical skills with ideas and concepts. You will be introduced to fashion image-making practices and gain an understanding of the roles of extended creative teams. You will be introduced to lighting techniques and work in in a range of locations. An introduction to both the ‘still’ and ‘moving’ image as used in a variety of contexts will be explored to raise awareness of the importance of context for image production.

Year Two — You will experiment with moving image, and digital technology alongside still photography. Experimental and innovative approaches to briefs will be encouraged. Collaboration through the management of creative teams will be an essential requirement and there will be a number of opportunities for this. External links with industry will be developed through employer engagement activities, live briefs and industry-facing projects enabling you to be able to recognise potential progression routes and career pathways within the fashion industry.

Year Three — You will continue your practice to build an extensive portfolio, and contribute to the end of year show. You will identify future career paths for progression into industry and prepare an appropriate portfolio of work to enable this. Establishing industry contacts and opportunities for external collaborations/live briefs will enhance the range of opportunities available upon graduation.
