Key Stage 4

Course Introduction: Creative thinking and expression are incredibly important skills. Arts and culture now contribute £101.5 billion directly to the UK economy each year and experts believe that creativity will survive the automation revolution. Film, gaming and TV are just a handful of industries that rely on photography artistic talent. It is a subject that breeds independence, confidence, resilience and an appreciation that any question may have multiple solutions.

Course Outline: Photography GCSE (Art – endorsement) develops a focus on technical skills as well as students learning to express themselves creatively through the medium of photography. Photography is defined as the practice of producing images using light-sensitive materials or digital methods of development and the production of static or moving images. Over the three years the students will explore a wide range of photographic techniques and processes, such as portraiture, location photography, documentary, moving image etc. They will be introduced to contemporary and traditional photography artists and cultures. As the course progresses students will grow in confidence and become more independent and will begin to specialise in their chosen area.

Course Expectations: Students must be willing to work independently outside of school on projects. Students must set up photo-shoots in their own time out side of the school day. They need to be curious; collect interesting materials and visit interesting places to progress their ideas. There is an expectation that students can critically analyse work.

Progression and Careers: Students may go on to study A level Art or a similar appropriate qualification. Students could go into higher education or study a hands on apprenticeship. A career in photography could take many different formats; artist, freelance photographer, stylist, journalism, forensics, moving image etc. The options available for students with a creative background is ever growing with the new technologies available.  Go to the Student Art Guide website to view a list of over 150 careers, with 25 examples showcased in detail. https://www.studentartguide.com/articles/art-careers-list
