The digital photography revolution has provided photographers with enormous creative opportunities, but it can often be an isolated world spent staring at monitors and wondering how to progress to the next creative level.

This course aims to remedy this by offering photographers an accessible, supportive and structured environment that combines practical assignments with discussions and taught material that explore various aspects of photographic culture.

The course is ideal for photographers who want to do more with their cameras and discuss photographic culture with like minds. You might have recently rediscovered photography after a long absence and are looking to focus your enthusiasm; or have just made the step-up to using a dSLR and are looking to put it through its paces with a series of assignments designed to challenge and inspire your creativity.

Perhaps you're considering entering higher education and want to dip your toe into the water with a short course that will give you a sense of what it's like to produce photographic assignments on a regular basis. The course is not designed to teach you the technical aspects of photography - it is more focused on developing your ideas in a collaborative environment and giving you a set of photographic challenges to respond to. As such, you'll need to have a decent working understanding of the camera you use, and of using computers and photography software to import, tweak and present your photographs.

Each workshop will spend time looking at a particular area of photography - examining, discussing and contextualising the work of a selection of photographers. You will then focus on a practical assignment, and evaluate the photographs you have taken since the previous week. As the course develops it will be tailored to work around the specific photographic interests of the group, but some areas we'll be looking at are:

  • documentary photography
  • portraiture
  • street photography
  • everyday minimalism
  • night photography
  • landscape photography.

The end of the course will focus on producing an online exhibition of the work that the group have produced during the course.

At the end of the course you will have an expanded portfolio, a broader awareness of photographic culture in general, and a sense of some of the debates that have underpinned contemporary and historical photography.
