Do you think you’re good at Photography? The ubiquity of the smartphone may have given most of us the opportunity to take a half-decent picture but there’s more to being a photographer than pointing and shooting.
At Harrodian, we view Photography as both a technical craft to be learnt and a serious art form capable of generating work with serious meaning and aesthetic content. We encourage students to bring the same application and concentration to their use of cameras, lenses and imaging equipment as an artist might to his paint and brushes.
Students take the OCR A Level Photography course. Please visit the OCR Website for full details or see the Harrodian Sixth Form Prospectus.
The course introduces a variety of photographic media and processes, ranging from the traditional to the digital. As well as mastering photography techniques students are required to study the work of other photographers as part of the course and to produce a sketchbook in which they document and record the development of their own work.
For more specific year-by-year information, please refer to our Curriculum Handbooks/Information Booklets.
