Commercial practice is the driving force of Photography at NUA. We are a leader in advertising, editorial and fashion photography, areas which are rapidly changing with the shift to digital technology.
Creative briefs, tutorials, group critiques and lectures develop your understanding of photography as a medium of visual communication. There is a strong emphasis on understanding markets, the needs of clients and the importance of communicating with an audience.
Emphasis is placed on making a smooth transition into industry through professional guest lectures and industry seminars which include topics such as copyright, the changing nature of photographic practice and client expectations. We are one of the few photography degree courses in the UK with Creative Skillset accreditation.
The course focuses on the development of an individual approach to professional practice. You will develop your skills as an independent practitioner and build a body of work which is very specifically yours. This means that when people see your work, you stand out from the crowd.
