The Photography course has many similarities with Art GCSE, however students focus specifically on Photography rather than a range of different media. Photography students learn about the development of photography in the past and apply their creativity to a range of different techniques and skills. Photography also helps students improve their communication skills, understanding how others communicate with them and how they can effectively communicate their own ideas with others. As in Art, students develop personal qualities such as confidence, initiative and resourcefulness.
Both Art and Photography are excellent courses for anyone who wants to work in the world of design, architecture, interior design, film work and stage set design, fashion, beauty, hairdressing, ceramics, a jeweller, landscape architect, fashion stylist, furniture designer. They also complement greatly any student who is interested media and journalism, including online journalism. The list goes on!
