Stage 5



The Photographic and Digital Media (PDM) elective course provides specialised learning opportunities for students in the field of photography, video and digital media. Students will explore the nature of photographic and digital media as an important field of artistic practice, conceptual knowledge and technological procedures. Through both practical and critical and historical studies students learn about the conventions of photography, changing photographic practices and the impacts of new technologies and digital media.


This course extends from fundamental photographic explorations in the Stage 4 Visual Arts mandatory course.  PDM aims to develop students' practical and conceptual autonomy in photography, video and digital media works. Students develop greater depth and breadth of creative skills and knowledge to operate digital SLR cameras, video cameras and digital editing software programs including Adobe Photoshop and Premiere Pro.
