Last week Shutter Hub’s Creative Development Director, Karen Harvey, paid a visit to The Manchester College to talk about Professional Development with students of the Contemporary Photographic Practices FdA, Foundation Degree course.
This course is based exclusively on digital imaging technologies and is designed for individuals who have an interest in investigating digital media from a photographic standpoint. Emphasis is placed upon the development of professional working practices, complementing students' evolving skills as photographers.
The course allows the flexibility to develop a personal programme of industry-related study. Students are encouraged to access other digital technologies as part of their studies and to develop conceptual thinking, critical analysis, creative problem solving and technical skills. Students have access to the latest desktop computing technology, and a large digital photographic resource.
You can find out more about the course here.
Karen’s talk was well received, amongst other things, she talked about how to make the transition from the academic environment into the working one, as well as ways of promoting your work and setting yourself apart from other photographers, and the importance of sharing your ideas.
Apparently she even curtseyed at the end!
