Photographer Apprenticeship Level 4

Duration: 18 months

Photographers work autonomously and with customers or clients, collaborating with other departments as required, to produce, manage and deliver photographic assets to meet agreed requirements. They work for larger organisations on social, commercial, government, scientific or specialist applications or for smaller, more specialist, photographic studios. Their work may be inside or outside, with digital or film cameras and producing still or video images.

Our programme is led by Anthony Milner, professional photographer and trainer with experience in architecture, interior, fashion, studio and product photography. Anthony has completed projects (some front covers) for publications such as Vogue, Grazia, House & Garden, FHM and World of Interiors as well as corporate assignments for:

  • B2C: Aston Martin, Tesco, Google, McDonald’s, Vodafone, Barratt Homes, Persimmon Homes, Chesterton Homes and Mexx.
  • B2B: Royal Institute of British Architects, Canary Wharf, Wimpey Homes, Savills and Frank Knights.
  • Ministry of Defence.
  • Individuals at his former high street portrait studios.
