This course offers opportunities to engage with diverse and innovative approaches to fashion image-making. It will develop your knowledge and understanding of the lens-based fashion industry and encourage an experimental, creative approach to produce visually striking photographs and films.
Our vibrant and collaborative learning environment will promote the exchange of ideas, and offers ‘hands on’ industry experience in the form of live briefs, publishing and exhibition opportunities, educational trips and commissions. Collaborating with students across the University and with wider creative communities locally, nationally and internationally is supported.
Your programme of study is informed by current and emerging industry contexts and practices, and you will work with highly skilled practitioners and specialist tutors, responding to exciting projects and briefs that develop your creativity, professionalism, preparation for the work place and offer real-life learning opportunities.
The course integrates creative practical projects with analysis of historical, cultural and social contexts of fashion image-making and you will be encouraged to take an experimental and questioning approach to your practice. We invite internationally renowned speakers to give an insight into current industry practices and offer opportunities to engage with external practitioners. In the past our students have been on study visits to Paris, Milan and New York, plus day-trips within the UK. Course related educational visits/trips experiences can take a variety of formats including physical and virtual.
