Photography

MAJOR

Overview

In the Photography program you will learn the basic techniques and practices of photography, using analogue and digital technologies. Explore a range of units that cover professional analogue and digital photographic formats, fundamentals of natural and artificial lighting and photographic storytelling. In creative studio units, students are strongly encouraged to experiment, research and develop their own conceptual and aesthetic sensibilities and to draw on their interdisciplinary studies. Towards the end of your major sequence, you will learn to refine your photographic technique and focus on developing individual style for folio preparation. This work provides a strong basis for postgraduate studies and professional practice. You will be supported to produce exhibition-quality work, using industry standard equipment and workflow and are encouraged to maximize opportunities for interdisciplinary installation and collaboration.
