Led by: Mr S Granger

Exam Board: AQA

What will I be studying?

Photography is an exciting and creative course. You will complete a series of projects, learning to use a digital camera and editing software to turn your ideas into images. This is an excellent course for students who are creative but struggle with more traditional artistic techniques such as drawing and painting. You will study other photographers’ work in order to develop your own style and will produce a portfolio of work that is worth 60% of your final marks. In Year 11 you will complete a task set by the exam board which will include a ten-hour examination; this will be the final 40% of your marks.

This is an intensive course and will require a lot of work outside school time.

What can I do afterwards?

Photography will teach you skills that you can use in a range of Arts careers such as Media Studies, Graphics and Art and Design. Photographers can find work in a variety of different industries such as newspapers, magazines, fashion, film, television, books, and web design. Photography is also used in industry, medicine and advertising.
