University of Gloucestershire BA (Hons) Photography: Editorial and Advertising 2024 Degree Show

Opening Hours: Monday - Friday 10am - 6pm Saturday 10am - 5pm

We are a creative, professionally orientated Photography course, with a long standing and highly regarded reputation within the creative industries. Awarded the Association of Photographers Course of the Year 2021, 2020 & 2018, we are very proud of the work our students create, and the success they achieve both during the course and after they graduate.

Our graduating year of 2024 are no exception. Please come to meet them and view their work during their degree show in May, there will be still and moving image pieces, covering subjects from sports, still life, fashion, portrait, personal exploration of invisible disabilities and more. The exhibitors are; Rianna Bell-Raven, Ben Brain, Paulina Kotarksa, Grace Clift, Alex Eveleign, Jessica Medway, Jessica Nock, Molly Harmson and Paryaa Makhzani.

In ‘Ed&Ad Photo’ we create photographers and videographers who are ready to take their next steps to being employed and/or freelance. We work with our students to discover and build their passions and creativity. We don’t have a ‘house style’ the students find their own voice and build their work within a professional context, so by the end of thier 3rd year they have created a strong body of work and have formulated a clear vision of the next steps on their career journey.

Our students learn how to communicate, negotiate and collaborate, key attributes for creative enterprise and employability. We work with organisations on live briefs, and are always responding to the needs of industry, continually keeping our course relevant. Underpinned with excellent technical know-how; Ed&Ad Photo students learn all the skills and knowledge to enable them to launch into the industry. With the transferrable skills and attributes our students gain they move into a wide range of careers within the creative industries, such as Photographers, Assistants, Social Media managers, Agents, Producers, Retouchers, Magazine Photography directors, Picture editors, and film directors.

The work to be featured isn’t just the culmination of three years of study, it’s the beginning of the rest of the students’ lives and professional careers, I hope you’ll join us at the show, and wish them every success with the next stage of their careers.
