Starting in September 2021 and running until December 2021, through a blend of studio and location work, darkroom, lighting and photographic theory workshops, this course will certainly get your creative juices flowing. This course will get you thinking about how photography can be used as a creative expression to reflect the current world we live in. Plus you will get to create a new or refresh your portfolio of work be it for your own use, exhibition or for industry recognition (BIPP or RPS distinction awards).

What do I need to apply

To do this course you should have... 

You will need a basic understanding of photography – a working knowledge of a camera or simply the camera on your mobile phone.

You will need to bring with you:

  • Camera equipment (when required)
  • A portable hard drive (not USB stick) formatted in xFAT
  • Your enthusiasm and imagination

You will also be expected to have expected to either have a ‘Flickr’ photography account or be prepared to open one to facilitate group discussion of your work (instructions on how to open such an account will be given).

Course content

Course Content 

Your workshops and activities will be facilitated by Patrick Denis. Working in a small group you will work at your own pace, exploring your ideas and developing your photographic skills. There will also be an opportunity for peer coaching and critiquing.

This course isn’t to be thought about in the traditional sense. Think of it as access to an open photographic resource. The course will be split into two 10 week blocks. The first 10 weeks is £180 and the second 10 weeks is £200. That works out at around £20 per week!

With access to a huge range of equipment including lighting, studios, production and post-production systems, you really can take your photography knowledge to the next level.

Each week you will be set exciting assignments to really get those creative ideas flowing. There will be workshops both in the studio and out on location and you will cover how to use different lighting systems, different camera formats, and different production and post-production platforms.
