Photography provides a variety of opportunities to the commercially-aware practitioner. From fast-moving sports, photo-journalism, landscape, the natural world, promotional work through websites, magazines and brochures, to commissioned events such as portraiture, weddings etc.

FdA Professional Photographic Practice provides the opportunity to develop your photography/post-production skills alongside your awareness of opportunities within the sector and the necessity of self-promotional work through marketing, social media and portfolio development. Academic skills will be developed through contextual study of genre/individual practitioners and progression to level 6 is provided through BA(Hons) Arts Practice (progression route). You will concentrate on your portfolio development and will have the opportunity to exhibit your work through the college’s annual art exhibitions and other promotional events.
