Photography Level 2

The Photography UAL Diploma Level 2 provides an introductory experience which will help you to develop practical and research skills, improve confidence and learn about progression opportunities in the photographic industry.

Your studies will provide you with a basic introduction to a broad range of traditional and digital photography techniques, working with moving image and location and studio photography. With access to a photography studio and darkrooms, you will learn through experimentation using a broad range of 2D and 3D processes.  Projects will help you to gain a contextual understanding of art and design and support you to make and articulate personal connections and interpretations. You will have the opportunity to improve your communication and presentation skills through taking part in group activities and student exhibitions.

The course will enable you to make informed choices with regard to a career in the Creative Arts sector. As part of the course you will also engage in GEM and GAP activities to develop your English, maths and employability skills in order to enhance your progression to the next level of education or to employment.
