Photography at Carnegie Centre

Mrs. M. Bevan and Miss K. McGill

Art and Design Photography is a unit comprised of a major practical portfolio and outcome/s to be based on internally set themes and subject matter developed from personal and/or given starting points.

Work undertaken within the unit will be internally set, internally assessed and externally moderated. Work will be selected, evaluated and presented for assessment by the student. Evidence is required of how the student has met each of the assessment objectives.

Photography gives learners the opportunity to follow a course which encourages creativity, sustained investigation, experimentation, design and making as a means of developing technical and expressive skills, extending experience and personal response, as well as developing imagination and critical, reflective thinking.
Thus learners will have the opportunity to develop a wide range of essential skills required for further and higher education, as well as employment.

The internally assessed, externally moderated Unit 1 ‘Portfolio’ encourages adventurous and open programmes of study that promote purposeful exploration, experimentation and opportunities for productive personal expression.

Areas of study include: 

  • Documentary photography

  • Photo-journalism

  • Studio photography

  • Location photography

  • Experimental imagery

  • Installation

  • Moving image: film, video and animation.


Work is not limited to one area of study.
