This distinctive course builds on the principles and conventions of photography to explore contemporary image-making, using a variety of image capture, manipulation and processing techniques. You'll work with cameras, scanning, photogrammetry, CGI and computer vision, and learn key critical theory that underpins photography.
The course addresses those students with a curiosity in relation to expanded photographic and media practices, technologies, and contexts and who are seeking to produce a creative and resolved body of work using an expanded range of techniques drawn from current practice in photography and new media.

This innovative course offers a practical route into the rapidly evolving field of photography and image-making techniques. There will be an inter-disciplinary first semester, where you will work collaboratively with students studying media production, game design & development, and music & sound design to enhance your digital media production skills and to develop your ability to work effectively in a team.
From the second semester onwards, students will have the opportunity to research and experiment with different forms of photographic and other 2D and 3D image creation, as well as to collaborate with students on the other creative technology courses. Aligned with active research and drawing upon technical expertise within the School, students will be able to apply their creative skills and specialist knowledge to a wide range of related industries, such as photography, art and design, fashion, games, tourism, heritage, architecture, and health.
All the time you’ll be developing a portfolio of your own creative work and commercial commissions. Take a look at students’ recent work for some creative inspiration. They’ll be opportunities to showcase your work at exhibitions inside and outside the University.
