Photographic and Digital Media

Years 9 and 10 Photographic and Digital Media (PDM)

Currently we offer this as a 100 and 200 hour elective course.

In this elective course students are provided with the opportunity to create a comprehensive photographic and digital media portfolio. Portraiture, landscape, still life, photojournalism, film, animation are just some of the genres and technical media areas students work in.

Students will explore the practice and work of a range of Australian and international photographers, designers, filmmakers, videographers, digital artists and animators to inform their own practice and recognise how it is situated in the context of the artworld. Such experiences provide opportunities for students to establish their intentions as photographers and digital artists and to develop their own practice and to make different kinds of photographic and digital works that reflect various concepts and techniques.

"There is one thing the photograph must contain, the humanity of the moment." Robert Frank
