Applying for MA Photography
MA Photography at LCC is based around the development of a single research-based and conceptually strong project. Applications to the course will need to include a promising project proposal, so our portfolio surgeries also offer a unique opportunity to run through some of your ideas with your potential future tutors and get some really valuable feedback.
Your study proposal should be a feasible, researched outline of a specific project that you plan to photograph. This should include how you plan to develop your project and also provide a sense of subject, style, approach, concept, research, and how much you know about contemporary fine art photography. Your portfolio should demonstrate that you have an understanding of project-based visual inquiry. Your application as a whole should give us a sense of how you locate yourself in your area of practice and how MA Photography will further your understanding of conceptual photographic practice.
