Course summary

**Studying Photography at Roehampton means that you’ll be on the doorstep of London’s vibrant creative scene, with some of the world’s leading magazines, agencies, studios and galleries within easy reach.**This option includes a foundation year to give you the academic grounding and skills you need to succeed on the main degree.While developing your photography and technical skills, you’ll become adept at using 35mm film cameras, film processing equipment, DSLR cameras, medium and large format cameras, and studio and location lighting. You'll learn to use all the relevant software packages, including Photoshop and Capture One, as well as developing digital darkroom skills and practical skills, such as project management, presentation and problem solving.On campus, you'll have access to all the state-of-the-art media facilities housed in the brand-new Sir David Bell media building, including studios, processing equipment and Mac suites.On the theoretical side, we’ll explore contemporary and historical photographic practices and their diverse uses in cultural fields such as journalism, fine art, fashion, editorial, advertising and web design. You'll learn about the relationship between photography and disciplines such as cultural studies, anthropology and philosophy; and become familiar with the work of key theorists and practitioners involved in the ongoing development of the field, such as Roland Barthes, and Broomberg and Chanarin. Central to the course is the development of your own portfolio of work. For the past seven years, final-year students have exhibited their work at Free Range in Brick Lane, which provides an ideal platform for exposure, as well as opportunities to meet vital industry contacts.We offer opportunities to explore career options, so you can assess your choices, evaluate your strengths and weaknesses, and learn how to present an excellent application. There are also opportunities to undertake a work placement.Taught on our south-west London campus, on this degree you will have access to many opportunities for work experience through our Careers Team, and access to face-to-face and 24/7 online careers support, whether you choose to live on campus or commute to us.**This course offers all students the option of a one-year paid work placement, to boost your employability even further. If you choose this route, you will take the placement following year two of the main degree, and then return to complete your degree. A placement year is the perfect opportunity to gain valuable work experience, to build on the career skills we will teach you on this degree. The connections you make on the placement will improve your career prospects further, and equip you with the skills you need to secure graduate-level employment.**
