Our intermediate photography course takes learning to new horizons.

You may have already completed the ‘Discover Photography’ introductory course and wish to build on your skills, or have the existing knowledge to start your studies at the next level.

Learning in our modern resource areas, our experienced tutor will provide you with exciting opportunities to experiment and develop your photographic skills in areas such as digital photography and creative image making.

You will focus on different areas of photography, and our industry professionals and academics will share with you a different aspect of photographic practice each week, including camera functions, equipment, colour and work flow management, studio lighting, portraiture and still-life photography, whilst developing your own creativity and ideas.

Utilising industry standard photographic equipment, you will begin to appreciate the controlled environment that photographers use. You will have access to various lighting and portable flash equipment, as well as ancillary photographic equipment. You will also be introduced to image post-production platforms, such as, Adobe Lightroom.

Demonstrations will explain how to ‘get the best’ from your photographic and imaging equipment, whilst there will be ample opportunity to discuss your images and techniques with fellow student photographers.

Project based, supported study, followed by a final informal critique, will help you evaluate your work and look at further study opportunities or professional practice routes.
