We’re looking 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.

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

Your Portfolio

Your portfolio should include work that evidences strong photographic skills, creativity, self-motivation and contextual awareness. As well as a well-developed portfolio, you’ll need to be able to demonstrate evidence of research (e.g. sketchbooks, essays or progress diaries).

We like to see a combination of photography skills, creativity, strong individuality and clear focus within your 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.
