Why Choose Photography?

More photographs have been taken in the past year than were taken in the whole of history beforehand.

This staggering fact makes it clear just how much this medium has become an integral part of our culture; with photography being so prevalent, a broad working knowledge of the subject is invaluable for anyone with an interest in working within the creative industries.

As well as scientific, commercial, fashion, portrait photography and photojournalism, the photographic student is well equipped to venture into broader fields such as graphic design, magazine production and work within film/television.

Students studying photography at ECC gain a thorough understanding of many aspects of this exciting, fast-paced medium and its history; from chemical based darkroom processing and manual film cameras, to digital editing techniques with industry standard software. You will leave the A Level course with an understanding of photographic image making which will fully prepare you for degree level education.
