Course overview

A-Level Photography will see you develop the skills necessary to produce thought-provoking images, while you experiment with a range of methods and approaches.

Photography’s digitisation means that much more of the work is computer-based, but you will also work on graphic and mixed-media projects.

You will respond imaginatively to set briefs and express your individuality as you explore subjects like: Street Photography, Portraiture, Montage, Depth, Dimension and Narrative.

Entry requirements
