About the Course

In today’s visually sophisticated, but increasingly competitive and fragmented market, it is imperative for successful photographers to demonstrate a distinctive visual voice. This honours degree will provide you with the advanced knowledge and skills to effectively adapt to various ways of thinking and making photographic images. You will be guided through personalised mentorship and individual supervision, as you are introduced to practice-led research and research methodologies. Through intensive studio based research and workshop practice, you will develop creative autonomy and a more sophisticated understanding of photography to make significant cultural contributions. This degree is designed for students who have successfully completed a three-year degree in photography, and who wish to undertake a further year of study to focus exclusively on an individual project. The degree will also appeal to commercial photographers, artists, designers and other creative industry professionals seeking a more advanced studio practice in photography.
