UAL Level 3 Extended Diploma in Art & Design (Photography) — Overview
This route provides a dynamic environment for aspiring photographers to develop technical and creative skills, supported by a team of professional photographers with nearly 50 years teaching experience between them.
You’ll have access to some of the best photographic resources in the region, including industry standard digital and lighting equipment, professional studios and darkrooms, and will even have the opportunity to try underwater photography.
You’ll also benefit from regular visiting speakers, such as Tom Oldham and Nicholas White.

You will study traditional film and darkroom techniques alongside Adobe Photoshop and other software, gaining core and specialist skills in studio lighting for portraiture, fashion, still life and product photography.
You will also benefit from practical workshops in studio and location photography, experimental techniques and digital media.
