Students undertaking the Photography Major sequence in the Bachelor of Arts will learn basic techniques and practices of photography, using analogue and digital technologies at Level 1. At Level 2, students can select from a range of units that cover professional analogue and digital photographic formats, ambient and artificial studio lighting, documentary and narrative storytelling as well as advanced darkroom and alternative techniques. Students are strongly encouraged to experiment, research and develop their own conceptual and aesthetic sensibilities and to draw on their interdisciplinary studies. At Level 3, students refine their photographic technique and focus on developing individual style with a focus on folio preparation. Work undertaken at this level provides a strong basis for postgraduate studies and professional practice. At all levels of the Photography Major Sequence students are supported to produce  exhibition-quality work, using industry standard equipment and workflow and are encouraged to maximize opportunities for interdisciplinary installation and collaboration.
