Photography BA(Hons): Portfolio guidance

Information required to support your application

We are looking for eager and enthusiastic students who understand why they want to study photography and can communicate these reasons orally and through their portfolios. We also look for students who are open minded, willing to explore all aspects of photography, and who are self-motivated with the ability to work individually and within a group.

Portfolio guidelines

Once we have received your application, you will be notified by email where you will either be requested to bring your portfolio to an interview OR you will be instructed how to upload your online portfolio.

If you are instructed to upload an online portfolio, please provide this as a PDF document or as a URL link to a personal live website/blog site showcasing your photography folio which will support your application.

Please select the work for your portfolio (up to 20 pages) to show us a creative and representative body of work, which reflects your current interests and ambitions.

Your portfolio will showcase:

  • Current student and/or professional photography work. Please submit sequences or sets of photographs of the subjects that most interest you, rather than single images of diverse themes.
  • Support material. Evidence how you have developed your ideas in a supporting statement making reference to the folio.
  • If appropriate, in addition to your photography, drawing and other media.

Portfolio guidelines for interview

If you are invited for an interview, please select the work for your portfolio to show us a creative and representative body of work, reflecting your ideas and ambitions. Please show us finished work, but also your working processes and methods – how you have developed ideas.

Your portfolio will include:

  • Current student and/or professional work; also be sure to include work which is your own independent photography.
  • If appropriate, in addition to your photography, drawing and other media.
  • We suggest you submit sequences or sets of photographs of what most interests you, rather than single images of diverse themes.

Your portfolio can be of be any size appropriate for the work, and should be labelled clearly with your name, UCAS number, contact and current course details (where appropriate). If you are invited for an interview you can bring either a physical print portfolio/box (10-20 images) or as a digital presentation, eg. a working 'live' website showcasing your photography, social media site (Instagram, Flickr photography profile pages).
