Creative photography and portfolio development
2. Course description The course is aimed at any local photographer who is competent at creating interesting images and knows how to use their camera but would like a clearer direction on how to take their photography forward - for example as a commercial photographer, serious amateur or photographic artist. Though a series of seminars, lectures, assignments and critical assessments, the course will give you freedom to find your own style and direction in photography and consolidate your technical and artistic understanding of what makes a good photograph. At the end of the year you will have built up an 'applied' knowledge of photographic production and post production and created your own portfolio of images. You will also exhibit your work at an end of year show.
