BA (Hons) Fashion Photography at the Rochester campus encourages students to learn, think, and create within the widest possible definition of fashion photography. Students are encouraged to establish a sustainable photographic practice in the creative industries, graduating with experience and practical business knowledge alongside advanced technological skills. We have a professional environment encouraging independent learning and approaches both experimental and savvy to the working of the industry. Fashion photography has developed from a way of selling clothes to a dream-work of narratives that can trouble as well as inspire, generating desire and shock alike. This course offers ways to approach fashion photography that enable understanding of and navigation through this complex form of image making.
