Photography

UWE Bristol offers students the opportunity to develop a creative photographic practice from a broad-based programme of activity, through to a specific and identifiable visual style. At its core is the development and resolution of strong creative project ideas in both still and moving imagery. This key attribute enables our students to take advantage of exciting opportunities in contemporary lens-based media. The course team embraces a holistic attitude to photography, enabling students to follow their developing aspirations in any number of fields.

Bristol is one of the most vibrant and creative cultural cities in the UK and a great

place to study. It also provides excellent opportunities for work experience and employment. Our students and alumni work in diverse fields including editorial, fashion, fine art, advertising, movie stills and medical photography, working with prominent employers and institutions such as the BBC, The Daily Telegraph, Sunday Times Magazine, The Tate Gallery, The National Portrait Gallery, Eye Magazine, Magnum Photos, French Connection, Vogue Italia, Vue Represents, The British Journal of Photography, Aardman Animations, Encounters Film Festival and The Martin Parr Foundation.

Our students and graduates are successful in both national and regional awards including; D&AD, Magnum Graduate Award and Taylor Wessing Prize.
