Results are finally in, and everyone is thinking about where they are going to university, or maybe asking if university is right for them. And you know what? It’s the perfect time. A lot of people may be talking about pandemics and lockdowns and recessions, but you have an amazing opportunity right now.
Because it’s all a bit crazy out there, there has never been a better time to study and enhance your knowledge and skill set. Work towards employment, which you’ll be ready for in a few years time, and skip all the drama and stress of a slow market that exists today. For postgraduates, it’s even a good time to think about going back to higher education and growing your skills and qualifications.
Why study Media and Photography?
If you’re passionate about films or photography, a degree in Media and Photography disciplines could be the perfect fit for you. Believe it or not, there’s a lot more to all of this than just pointing a lense at something and hoping for the best.
Understanding space, dimensions, composition, lightning, blocking, angles and so much more are all important aspects to being a good photographer, cinematographer or director, and plenty of other roles found with this creative field.
For those more interested in the production side of things, knowing how to organise the many components involved in a good shoot is critical. Mastery of scheduling, inventory, lead times, budgets and the management of people are just a few of the skills needed to thrive in Media and Photography.
The University of Bolton can help you turn your interest or passion for films and photography into a fully fledged set of applied professional skills.
