This subject area aims to develop student’s understanding and skills in Photography, Graphic and Visual Design. The design skills themselves are a major part of this course and as they are developed they are applied to a variety of photographic projects. Many camera skills and techniques are developed along the way. The equipment and software are to an industry standard as is our state of the art digital photography centre. This subject area suits students who wish to pursue a career in this area as well as students who see photography as a personal interest that they want to develop.
Courses run in Years 9 to 12. In Years 11 and 12 students can select the Certificate 3 in Visual Arts (Photography) which is studied over 2 years and at the end students receive the Certificate 3 level qualification.
Carine Senior High School prides itself on very high standards in both the written (design) and practical elements of this subject and this is shown by the many competitions wins and awards that our students have achieved so far. Carine Senior High School has had over 50 prize winners in 7 years of operation in this subject in the various competitions.
The school calendar is produced completely by our Year 11 students and copies are available free of charge from Reception.
