Photography Level 3

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: R. Hatcliffe

Level 3 Photography will build on the skills and techniques gained at Level 2 and enable students to extend their knowledge of the conventions of photography and their practical knowledge. Students will be guided through generating an individually conceived theme and produce a body of original work based around key photographic artist models. A high level of creativity and personal investment is therefore required. Critical, reflective and creative thinking skills, independent approaches to problem solving and self-directed learning, essential for tertiary study, are promoted.
Level 3 Photography is a University Entrance approved subject.
