BA (Hons) coursesCommercial Photography

Interviews and Portfolios

Interviews are an opportunity for you to demonstrate your commitment and self-motivation and to discuss aspects of your chosen course.

You will be expected to display an advanced level of photographic skills and an appreciation of contemporary commercial photographic practice and its professional context.

Portfolios should exhibit work that evidences good photographic skills, creativity, self-motivation and contextual awareness.

What we look for

We look for students who have clear focus and ambition, who have already demonstrated an interest in photography and wish to channel that commitment into a course that will give them the opportunity to realise their potential as commercial photographers.

As well as a well-developed portfolio, you will need to be able to demonstrate evidence of research (for example through sketchbooks, essays or progress diaries).

We like to see a combination of photography skills, creativity, strong individuality and clear focus within the students’ work.

We also expect to see strong sketchbooks that evidence not only project development and a commitment to photography, but also a diverse range of interests that have helped to inform student work.
