A-Level Photography (AS and A-Level Linear) AQA
Studying Photography at BSix

In this course, you will be introduced to a variety of photographic media techniques and processes, using both traditional and new technologies. This course will allow you to explore and produce work in areas such as:

  • Portraiture
  • Landscape photography (working from the urban, rural and/or coastal environment)
  • Still life photography (working from objects or from the natural world)
  • Documentary photography, photojournalism
  • Fashion photography
  • Experimental imagery
  • Multimedia
  • Photographic installation
  • Moving image (video, film, animation)

You will be assessed on your portfolio which you will build up throughout the course and will represent all the work you have completed and skills you have developed in each area of study. This will form 60% of your grade. You will also be assessed on an externally set assignment which will make up the final 40% of your grade.

You do not have to have studied photography previously, but in addition to our standard A-Level programme entry criteria you should have a C grade or higher in an Art & Design related qualification as well as a keen enthusiasm to learn and work creatively.
