Entry requirements

Who is it for?

The NCFE courses have always been well respected within the photography industry. This course is for those who have an interest in photography and is available to beginners and those with some knowledge who wish to develop their photographic skills further, for general interest, artistic pursuit or with a view to a career change. It is expected that you would own or have access to a digital SLR camera.

What does the course involve?

This qualification is aimed at those individuals wishing to develop an understanding of photographic processes and the photo imaging industry. The qualification will also allow learners to understand how to manipulate images and explore in detail one of the following areas of photography: dark room; studio; location; commercial; documentary; experimental and alternative processes.

Potential progression from this qualification may mean learners to progress into employment in the industry or onto further qualifications at Level 3 in creative subjects including photography, art and design, craft, animation and moving image production.

You will learn how to use all camera controls, working through a series of set projects, producing images and written work to satisfy assignment briefs, and build skills as you progress through the course. You will have access to industry standard software for image manipulation, and will also produce black and white images in the darkroom.
