This course builds upon the foundations of the HNC course and the students are trained for entering the world of professional photography.  Course topics include Photojournalism, Documentary Photography, Fashion and Advertising.

The HND year culminates in the production of a professional portfolio showcasing the individual student’s preferred specialism within photography.  This can then be used to progress onto degree and honours degree study, starting a business or seeking employment within the Creative Industries.

HND Photography students have the opportunity to present their work at the end of year Exhibition which forms part of this Creative Showcase.  The exhibition is planned, designed, promoted and executed as a class group giving them valuable experience for professional life after they leave education.
