The programme offers an in-depth view into commercial and editorial photography with an emphasis on professional practice and the achievement of a strong portfolio. The interaction of technical theoretical and creative aspects of photography is central in the delivery of the programme, with the focus of keeping up to date with the rapidly evolving photographic industry.

Students learn actively through workshop-based teaching in our studio and darkroom. The learning is further enriched with a range of study visits to museums and galleries. Students benefit from a variety of teaching styles by inspirational lecturers that have professional experience as photography practitioners. This is a programme designed to meet the needs and expectations of students aspiring to work in the creative industries.

During the course you will build on your knowledge by studying eight units. The broad variety of units will provide an abundance of opportunities to discover the area of photography you are particularly passionate about. You will explore practical aspects of photography and will acquire extensive skills in studio lighting, industry based digital postproduction, analogue photography and black and white darkroom printing, which will enable you to produce impactful photographic images. The theoretical units will provide a historical and cultural framework that will inform your understanding of photography in a wider context.

The practical units will be delivered in Chelsea Centre, while part of the theoretical units, as well as tutorials will be delivered online using Microsoft Teams. Teaching takes place in small groups through lectures, practical workshops and regular 1-1 tutorials.
