    In Focus: Photography in Higher Education

    In Focus: Photography in Higher Education

    In this 'In Focus' episode we're talking about photography in higher education, both studying and teaching. We've talked to students, ex-students, tutors and mature returners to get a picture of the photographic degree scene.
     
    There are a number of photography courses and options for studying for both young adults and mature students. In this episode we wanted to get a feel for a photography degree course, how to find the right one, what the role of the tutor is and what you might expect to do afterwards.

Bedy photography podcast by a country mile

This is a great podcast. If you are looking for endless hours of talk about gear or luminoisty masks, go elsewhere. This is more about the guests' philisophical approach to photography- their "why" as to the choices they make in their subjects and the composition of the same. The Mark Littlejohn podcast is a great way to get started. What a gem!

Awesomeness

Wonderful podcast introducing you to photographic artists and their approach. Insightful and thoughtful interviews with a touch of British humor. As a landscape photographer based in the US, it's fun to connect with the community just across the pond. Well done boys!

Nailed It.

Absolutley love the TogCast. Paul and Sam have nailed it. I recently binge listened to every available podcast while on a road trip and was left wanting more. Keep up the good work lads
