You will enrich your creative practice and develop further knowledge and skills through the exploration of photographic practice and culture in a flexible and supportive environment. We pride ourselves on our 'smaller is better' motto - small class sizes means more one-to-one support and interaction, and the relationship students build with our international networks sets them up for success.
Photography Studies College is recognised as one of the leading photographic educational institutions in the world.
Join us at the Home of Photography Education.
Our campus is the culmination of extensive international research and planning and provides a specialised contemporary learning environment with purpose built facilities.
Our lecturers are leading professionals highly respected and connected in the photography and image making industry. We offer an extensive international mentor program.
You are immersed in practical, hands-on learning environments that mirror professional practice. We provide fantastic student to teacher ratio in smaller class sizes.
Our photography course delivery includes interactive classes, workshops and practical participation. Both face-to-face OR real time study via Zoom provide the same level of teacher guidance and support.
This program introduces an innovative and cutting-edge curriculum targeted at practicing photographers, graduates, professionals, curators and artists seeking the freedom to pursue their own work in a supportive environment (face-to-face or remotely.)
The program's delivery model is designed around blocks of study and ongoing, regular sessions over an 18-month period.
With intensive periods of seminars, workshops, and esteemed visiting lecturers - the program is designed to produce results in a constructive and rigorous environment.
As a Master of Arts Photography student, you will be taught and supervised by leading photographers, artists, academics, curators, writers and publishers from around Australia and the world. You will also be supported with regular one-to-one meetings with one of our international mentors, drawn from the world's leading photo agencies, galleries and publishers.
Establishing your project: This semester lays the groundwork of the program, and establishes a platform for the development of the practical work in your studies. You will be given the tools and opportunity to experiment and test new ideas, contexts and directions, both conceptually and technically.
Expanding your practice: in semester the growth and development of your practice is supported by seminars, workshops, regular reviews and feedback. Further in-depth theoretical exploration of the contexts, themes and narratives that inform and support your work will be applied.
The final semester brings your practical and conceptual progress together. A final public professional presentation of your work will be supported by a written element, that situates and contextualises your outcomes.
During your Master of Arts Photography, you will draw on expertise from a range of artists, curators and photography professionals.
