Plymouth College of Art
Final Year Show 2020
20 July to 7 September 2020
Plymouth College of Art provides distinctive and contemporary programmes of study where students with a range of aspirations can flourish creatively, academically and professionally.
Situated in the school of Design + Communication, our Commercial Photography degree has been developed in dialogue with the photographic industry. Our curriculum is focused on equipping our students with a range of creative, technical and professional skills. Through industry engagement and work-based learning our students develop their confidence and personal characteristics that enable them to apply their learning in different situations. We develop imaginative, confident and commercially aware photographers. Practitioners who understand trends in the industry, how to generate new opportunities through self-promotion and professional networking, and how to deliver creative and technically accomplished responses to client briefs.
Luminous is our 2020 graduating cohort, a collective of talented individuals who represent the next generation of commercial image-makers. From character portraits and stylised fashion editorials, to meticulously crafted studio photography, our students have been encouraged to develop their own individual style and approaches to working. Despite the restrictions forced upon them by COVID19, these students have risen to the challenge and produced a series of successful final major projects. These are passionate and determined individuals, whose work here demonstrates their readiness to make the transition from creative study into commercial practice.
