This course will teach you the necessary skills to capture the identity of a place in your photographs.

Previous courses have explored the skyline from NTU's rooftop, Bromley House Library's handsome interiors, the banqueting hall of the Council House, and the beautiful homes of The Park.

You'll explore urban spaces old and new, inside and out, learning how to work with city architecture and the built environment.

Architecture in photography is something many people can relate to, making it an accessible form of photographic practice.

But being able to capture a unique image using specialist equipment is a real skill, and which sets accomplished photographers aside from others.

This practical course will appeal to anyone interested in the urban environment and how the aesthetic qualities of buildings can be captured in a photograph.

You'll approach architecture and photography from both an editorial and fine art perspective, giving your work a breadth of content that will appeal to a range of audiences.

On this course, you will:

- improve your understanding of digital photography and the manual settings of your camera
- discuss the work of professional photographers and how they may inform the direction your work takes
- experience working in a variety of urban locations, capturing the external and internal qualities of historic and contemporary buildings
- experiment with abstract shapes, colours and textures
- use Raw processing and Photoshop to enhance and manipulate your images
- develop a personal style to your photography
- create inspiring architectural images that have both an aesthetic and technical quality.

What will you gain?

By the end of the course, you will have a portfolio of unique architectural images, the knowledge and experience of how to plan a shoot on location, and ideas about how to continue your photography in the future.

Level: Beginner

Entry requirement: You should have some knowledge of using your digital camera in manual mode.

Tutor profile: Paul Witney has been a professional photographer for over 30 years, and teaches on the degree programme at NTU.

He's British Institute of Professional Photography qualified to Associate Level, and has worked in such diverse places as Kabul, Afghanistan and Glaciers in Iceland.

He's had an impressive list of commercial clients including Royal Ordnance, Texaco, Local Councils, British Aerospace, Heckler and Koch, Jane's Defence review (small arms), Mercedes-Benz UK, Thomas Cook and Nottingham Forest FC.

For eleven years he was also the Head of Photography and Video for a small government organisation.
