Jenson Francis finds Contemporary Photography Practices
Jenson Francis is the perfect example of the benefits of studying at UCEN Manchester, sharing her experience on how it changed her perspective and helped her find her future. Jenson chose to study a FdA in Contemporary Photography Practices with UCEN Manchester, drawn to our personalised curriculum that boasted more contact time with tutors and smaller working groups.
Originally set on becoming a teacher and wanting to focus on her teaching technique and lighting skills, it was not until Jenson started on the course that she discovered her potential and gained an interest for photography outside of the studio format.
The course enables students to explore their creativity when responding to briefs. Jenson said “The tutors cater to you as an individual rather than a class. They’ve designed the modules to give you the best degree but to also give you professional, creative and technical skills that really encourage you to succeed in your specialism.”
Contemporary Photography Practices is offered as a two year full-time degree-course, or a four year part-time degree-course to fit around the needs of our students.
It is an exploration of art and creativity with graduates going on to work as photographers, freelance practitioners, photojournalists, curators, exhibiters, educators and in research and picture editing.
Ever the perfectionist? You don’t have to stop there. Upon completion of the course you may be interested in progressing onto the (BA Hons) Creative Media and Visual Communication (Top-up) Course.
