Introduction to studying Photography


A warm welcome to Middlesex
University and its photography programs, BA Photography and MA Photograpy
In this short series of films, you will hear about the achievements of
the students at Middlesex University, and see the facilities that are available at
Middlesex University that make the courses so successful.
The following video shows that evidence of a consistently high standard of work by
the Middlesex photography students. Middlesex this year won the Best in Show
at the Truman Free Range. Its graduates, since the beginning of the course a few
years ago, have won several D&AD; New Blood gold medal awards.
They’ve been selected most years for the Taylor
Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize, including last year’s John Kobal Award,
and its students and graduates have been selected for each of the three 5 UNDER 30
exhibitions at the Daniel Blau Gallery. When studying at Middlesex University,
our students are able to use a large range of photographic equipment and facilities.
We still fully support traditional film processes, and have a black-and-white
processing area. To accompany this,
we have two very well-equipped black-and- white darkrooms that can be used for
printing fiber-based papers as well as resin-coated papers.
We also have a hand- printing color dark room with individual
booths and an RA-4 processing machine. There are a wide range of cameras
available for hire, for free. Occasion lighting equipment is available.
Electronic flash, lighting stands, light modifiers, softbox,
umbrellas, and reflectors. We also have an extensive digital
darkroom. It’s fully equipped with 60 color-managed workstations and Wacom
tablets. We also have a large number of
printers, with sizes ranging from A4 up to A0.
We have three large photographic studios that have been built and equipped to
professional standards. We also have a smaller table-top studio space that can be
used to produce still-life and product work to a very high level.
Finally, all of the photography facilities at Middlesex are staffed
by one of the best technical teams in the country.
The photography workspaces have proven to be a very successful
meeting place for our students across the years, where help and
advice can always be found. If you want to keep up-to-date with
Middlesex photography, you can find us on Twitter and Tumblr.
Please visit us on one of our open days if you’d like to see the
facilities. If you can’t make it on one of
the open days, please contact us, and we’d be happy to show you
around at any other time to suit you.
