Visit the official programme website for more information

Overview

The course is founded on the assertion that commercial photography is a powerful form of mass communication that potentially connects with an audience of millions. The course offers an exciting combination of art and commerce and comprises of three highly practice-focused units. This is to allow the production of substantial bodies of work that could become an exhibition or publication.

The Commercial Photography course is designed for ambitious photography graduates, or experienced photographers who wish to develop their knowledge and expertise in order to reach the very top of their field. We look for students with a passion for the subject and who are willing to take risks, and in doing so push themselves to new heights.

Course Outline

MA Commercial Photography students will be able to engage with a breadth of creative practices including advertising, fashion, editorial, documentary and fine art photography. Using still and/or moving image, you’ll define your own visual identity and then identify an appropriate audience to ensure a successful and profitable career.

MA Commercial Photography offers the opportunity to study in the genres of advertising, fashion, editorial or documentary photography, whichever genre you choose to pursue will define your experience of the course.

In each genre you’ll develop a comprehensive understanding of techniques and knowledge relevant to that specialism, combined with a critical awareness of developments in that area of professional practice.

The course will encourage students to make industrial links and live projects as part of their MA study. This may include students working very closely with external organisations to achieve a highly creative postgraduate level outcome and possibly make industrial links that continue far beyond graduation.
