Our exciting and vibrant new FdA Photography programme, is built upon the years of existing good practice to be found in the Arts and Media Department at Cornwall College Camborne.

Photography is a popular, challenging and competitive subject. As such our new programme has been designed to ensure our graduates are tenacious, flexible and excited by the new opportunities that are available in photography and are fully aware of the niches that can be carved within the creative industries.

To ensure a dynamic student experience, as a FdA Photography student you will be located within the existing BA (Hons)/ FdA Art & Design Practice studio spaces, sharing a range of facilities including an HE Common Room. You will also enjoy your own subject specific teaching areas, including a photography studio and dark room facilities.

Smaller teaching groups are a positive element of the programme, ensuring you receive the expert attention that you need to become a successful photographer. However, the programme cohorts will be large enough for you to collaborate with fellow students and undertake group projects. Opportunities will exist to support you if your interest lies in photo-journalism or contemporary fashion, or if you wish to develop specialisms in the use of either digital or conventional photographic technology. Photography specific visits and trips will take part throughout the programme as part of the curriculum. Location photography shoots in Cornwall, in both countryside and coastal regions, will also form part of the programme.

Alice Vandy

A photo of Alice Vandy

Alice’s fashion designs have been seen on celebrities such as Rita Ora, Miley Cyrus, Paris Hilton and Jessie J, she also collaborates with some major manufacturers including Care Bears, My Little Pony and Hello Kitty.

“I knew I wanted to be a fashion designer and the course at Camborne covered lots of different disciplines, which was great as it gave me a wonderful overview of all the various paths open to me and I particularly remember enjoying life drawing. From there I was accepted by The University of Plymouth to study fashion design and on completion of my degree I then moved back to Cornwall and got a job at a high-end fashion boutique, which introduced me to the spectrum of fashion.

My goal was to have my designs on the catwalk at the Clothes Show, so I worked hard, researched a lot, got signed by a portfolio agency and was then contacted by the stylist who wanted me to be involved in the designs for the opening sequence to the show. From there I received work from the X-Factor, Got to Dance and worked with Vogue on a Range Rover launch. "
