“You don't make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved.” - Ansel Adams
Would you like to follow in the footsteps of Henri Cartier-Bresson, Vivian Maier, Richard Avedon, Ansel Adams, Julia Margaret Cameron, Brassai, Jaques-Henri Lartigue, Saul Leiter, Dorothea Lange, Don McCullin & William Henry Fox Talbot – Then perhaps you should consider studying AS Photography.
Photography is a wonderfully exciting course, which enables those interested in Art and Design to pursue another creative course. It can be seen as an extension to other art based courses which a student may wish to study or it may be the only creative subject which a student chooses to study. Either way there is enormous scope for the development of and the appreciation of Photography through this rich and varied programme. There is always an element of drawing within such a course but one should think of more ‘storyboard’ work or planning for a photographic shoot. So a student does not have to be a fine artist in order to study Photography. The course will support each student through their creativity and afford them the experience of both darkroom work and digital media. We are surrounded by photographic imagery through social media and the media more generally. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to develop your own style of image making…? The Photography course at the RHSB will support your individuality through creativity.
