About the course

This practice-based course helps you to explore the creative and intellectual possibilities of photography through practice and research, supporting your development as an artist photographer.

Student Profile(s)

Adam Deakin

"During my time at NTU, I have learnt so much which has allowed me to grow as an artist; however, the most valuable thing I will take away from the course is the importance of self-belief (something I struggle with). Having the confidence in your own abilities will help to keep you moving forward throughout your career; NTU has taught me how to be a professional.

"I appreciated the opportunity to spend a year fully researching my subject; allowing the project to evolve over time. I also enjoyed being encouraged to problem solve for myself as this will be beneficial after graduation.

"I would recommend the MA Photography course at NTU to anyone who wants to further their understanding of photography and its position in art. The course is led by a team of outstanding, knowledgeable lecturers who are all successful in their chosen genre of photography.

"I feel very honoured to be part of the Portrait of Britain project, representing the changing nature of Britain. I have followed the award since the beginning and now to be a part of it is truly amazing. I am also a big fan of Hoxton Mini Press, so I can’t quite believe that I will have two images in one of their books alongside other talented photographers.

"My long-term goal is to have the ability to support the next generation of photographers and artists through working as a university lecturer. I owe any success to the encouragement of my tutors and I would take great pleasure in being part of the education system that has supported me."
