Why study Photography?
Photography is an important form of visual communication. Imagine a world without it and you will realise just how widely photographic, and particularly digital, images are used in a range of sectors and industries, from advertising and printing to broadcasting and film making.
Photographs are widely used in our everyday lives to capture important events, people, places and situations. We also use them to help us to understand the world around us and to express our ideas, thoughts and feelings in an artistic way.
