BA (Hons) Photography at Carmarthen School of Art, Coleg Sir Gar, is an established programme, designed to encourage creativity and develop photographic skills based on individual interests, while embracing a broad technical and conceptual approach that reflects the developments and trends of contemporary photographic practice. Combining new technologies with traditional working practices (digital and silver-based), supported by an integrated theory programme, this course enables learners to work confidently and professionally while developing a career in photography.
Individual student approaches are supported by lecturers; whose own practices are informed by a wide range of experience including documentary, editorial, fashion, commercial, fine art photography, publishing, and content creation. Our school provides a friendly and supportive environment for students to explore their options and develop their individual style and potential. Class sizes are small and tutor contact is second to none.
Key to our learners' success, we work closely with our students to develop their critical and entrepreneurial thinking, crucial to securing employment within the photographic industry, and this programme ensures that graduates leave with a broad professional portfolio, demonstrating personal identity, as well as transferable skills, enhancing opportunity and employability. Recent graduates have been recognised in a number of high profile awards, including The Taylor Wessing Award, Rankin, Bafta Cymru, Printspace Trajectory, The Association of Photographers and The World Photography Organisation; with commissions provided by the the National Museum of Wales / National Portrait Gallery / Y Senedd / The British Council / The National Trust / Ffotogallery, amongst many other successes.
