Why study Media and Photography?

If you’re passionate about films or photography, a media and photography degree could be the perfect fit for you. Believe it or not, within a photography career, there’s a lot more to all of this than just pointing a lens at something and hoping for the best.

Understanding space, dimensions, composition, lighting, blocking, angles and so much more are all important aspects to being a good photographer, cinematographer, or director, and plenty of other photography career roles found with this creative field.
