In this unit students are shown how the Photographic Studio is a constructed and stylised space separate from the external found world. The studio offers a potential for synthetic visualization plus an element of experiential and professional practice not found in other units. From its origins of portrait painting, through the post-war period of creative advertising and arriving in the contemporary tableau and psycho-dramatic style, studio photography is a technical and artistic discipline for students with professional and creative aspirations.

Topics in this unit include:
- The conventions of the portrait: formal, informal, experimental and nude.
- Lighting set-ups
- Lens and camera choice
- Still-life and table-top techniques

- Tableau and constructed space.
- The found studio.
- Genre recreation.
