Year 11 Photography, Video and Digital Imaging

Currently we offer this as a 100 hour elective course.

This elective course offers students the opportunity to develop professional skills in digital photography. Students develop a professional portfolio and investigate studio photography, action and motion photography, product photography, digital media design, video editing and stop motion animation. As part of the course, students will undertake specific location shoots to enhance techniques. Students will build a solid portfolio of work.

It is a rigorous course with a strong theoretical component with a focus of contemporary and postmodern artists studied.  Students produce images of a high technical and aesthetic standard as well as understand the theoretical underpinnings of the subject.

"Photography is an art of observation. It's about finding something interesting in an ordinary place … it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them." Elliott Erwitt
