This major is only available to students undertaking the Bachelor of Visual Arts degree program.
The Photomedia major focuses on the still image and teaches fundamental techniques such as digital and analogue photography; studio lighting; computer manipulation; and other experimental techniques. It also teaches aspects of video production and public and community art. Students move beyond core photographic competencies and are introduced to the other skills they need to be fully-rounded image-makers in the twenty-first century. Students have access to well equipped colour and black and white darkrooms, a professional lighting studio, a student gallery for exhibitions of art works, generous student work spaces, and specialist research facilities, such as an inkjet research facility for wide format printing on a variety of materials. Graduates go on to be practicing visual artists and photographers, to undertake further study and higher degree research; to work in galleries and museums; to train as teachers or lecturers; to set up their own businesses; or to work in the printing, design and publishing businesses.
Students who complete this major will have the skills and knowledge to:
- demonstrate skills and knowledge of the practices, languages, forms, materials, technologies and techniques in photographic art.
- apply relevant skills and knowledge to realise artefacts and forms of creative expression.
- develop and evaluate concepts and process by thinking creatively, critically and reflectively.
- work independently and collaboratively in a workshop environment in response to project demands.
