Level 2 Photography (PHO202)

PHO202
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: R. Hatcliffe

In a technological-savvy generation that uses photography daily on social media it’s not surprising that the subject has become popular within the creative industries. Level 2 Photography will teach students the conventions of photography and how to develop a series of ideas influenced by established photographic artists as models of best practice. Students will experiment with processes and procedures and be guided through researching, exploring, generating and clarifying their own ideas. There will be two internal assessments based around photographic conventions and developing ideas and a two-panel external folio towards the end of the school year.
