NCEA Level 2 Photography
Teacher in Charge: Mrs M. Malcolm
The work developed for assessment for both internal and external assessments will be project based investigations around themes. These themes will centre on various photographic conventions and use a variety of interesting established artist models to help guide students to a successful body of practical work in each unit.
In this course students will learn to use a Digital camera with manual controls. The course is taught in a Fine Arts context using professional artist models as a method of study and a means of developing a body of original works in series towards assessment. Students will also be taught Digital Photography and Photoshop manipulation, for beginners or advanced students.
Career pathways include Journalistic Photography, Fashion Photography, Advertising, Television and Film Production, Design Pathways and Fine Arts and Portrait Photography.
