Pupils will explore practical, critical, and contextual sources that shape the work of historical and contemporary photographers. These sources will inspire and inform our pupils’ own creative responses.
Pupils at St David’s College will have access to school equipment and will be able to borrow cameras and other pieces of equipment. They will also have access to some of the more traditional darkroom processes and chemical techniques as well as the “digital darkroom” with the latest software and printers to bring their visions to life.
Pupils studying photography at St David’s College will develop a knowledge and skill set that will give them a grounding to prepare them for further study or life as a photographer. Areas of study include:
- Documentary photography
- Studio photography
- Location photography
- Experimental imagery
- Moving image: film, video, and animation
Work is not limited to one area of study.
