Course Overview

Photojournalism is a particularly powerful form of journalism that uses images to tell a story. This is done via newspapers, news magazines, and Internet searches. It’s not just “taking news pictures”, nor do photojournalists only work in war zones. Writing and speaking require the knowledge of a specific language, however, it is the visual image can be understood by almost anyone: facial expressions, emotions, movement, body posture, composition, and light and shadow can all tell a story in a way that words can’t. Photojournalism – put simply – is about capturing verbs.

Throughout this comprehensive course, you will be encouraged to ‘think pictures.’ You’ll discover key journalistic techniques and how to relate to photography, and explore the principles of narrative to develop your visual storytelling skills. You’ll be able to work in your own time, at your own pace, giving you plenty of time to practise capturing your own little pieces of history.
