Available to all students
This subject will provide students with intensive quasi real-world experiences in
working to a supplied brief and working to deadlines within the genre of Photojournalism.
In Stage 1 all students will initially attend full time lectures and tutorials covering
aspects of documentary photography and working journalism. In the final session students
will be individually supplied with a detailed brief, each based on a separate issue
of environmental concern in North Queensland. The following week will comprise unsupervised
background research to contextualise the topic, identify issues and key players and
develop an action plan to investigate and report on their topic. Stage two involves
field-work invoking the action plan. All photography, interviews and further related
research will be done at this time. Students will return to complete write-ups and
format images and articles.
- Awareness of image making as a medium for social, political and cultural change;
