Photography can document an experience, represent a brand or business and act as a form of creative expression. Within the workplace, photography has a key role to play and having the knowledge and know-how can help you stand out from the crowd. From website content to social media marketing and from designing printed materials to email newsletters, it’s important that your photographs are a professional representation of the brand.

At this free taster session discover what makes a good photograph with an introduction to composition and experiment with a range of digital techniques to produce some creative images on location. Whether you’re working with a limited range of equipment or have access to a camera and editing software, this session is adaptable to the current climate and is inclusive of all.

This FREE taster will enable you to find out more about the Photographic Techniques SUCCESS module, how it could benefit you and talk to the tutor about your expectations and needs.

Our free tasters are standalone, non-accredited sessions that will allow you to find out what studying these subjects at a Higher Level would entail and where gaining these qualifications could take you. Completion of a taster could also result in financial support towards a qualification at Level 4 or above.
