Edinburgh College Students
HND Professional Photography at Edinburgh College is designed to prepare students for the rigours of professional photography. The emphasis throughout the year is on professional attitude, attention to detail and the desire to satisfy the demands of the client rather than on personal expression.
The most impressive creative photography has always traditionally been linked to the creative demands imposed by commercial markets and here at Edinburgh College you will be asked to fulfil photographic briefs while developing fresh and original creative image solutions.
This course provides students with a unique opportunity to develop skills within their own chosen area of commissioned professional photography. It is a practice-led course which allows students to optimise their creative and technical skills and will provide them with the tools needed to enter a fast-paced, competitive industry.
The College has also developed important links within the industry; encouraging students to engage with photography professionals to give them real practical knowledge.
This course is unique in Scotland as it is accredited by the British Institute of Professional Photography as well as endorsed by the Association of Photographers. The BA Professional Photography course is validated through Gray's School of Art at the Robert Gordon University.
