The MA Photography course aims to be at the forefront of commercial creativity and innovation. Photography at NUA has gained a reputation for its work in the field of advertising, fashion and editorial photography. The MA Photography focuses on developing a commercial practice and has been designed to equip students with the professional knowledge, contextual understanding and the high level of skills demanded by the rapidly developing photographic industry. Photography at NUA is strongly linked to industry and works closely with some of the most respected photographers and professional bodies, including the Association of Photographers.
MA Photography at NUA is primarily practice-based, focusing in particular on creativity, ideas generation and the physical and conceptual production of high quality images for commercial output. The course focuses on the increasingly complex areas of commercial photographic practice, digital image capture, and careers within associated disciplines. The developments of entrepreneurial and professional practice skills are important components of study, and the course aims to support students who aspire to become successful commercial practitioners. MA Photography students work in the inspirational environment of a converted 12th century monastery, fitted with contemporary studio spaces and industry-standard digital facilities.
