Part Time Advanced Course
The 10 month Advanced Photography Course is aimed at individuals who are already technically proficient and would like to create a focused body of work, and smaller projects around a particular theme or concept. The course teaches practical and theoretical development of concept and narrative, exploring a critical approach to image making in our local context. By engaging a variety of research processes involved in the building of a contemporary visual narrative, you will reflect upon the use of photographic technique to create and express meaning.
The course includes modules on Portraiture and Landscape Photography, Critical Photographic Theory, Visual Culture and Literacy and Professional Practice. The course outcomes include an exhibition at Through The Lens Collective, or an exhibition publication.
