Abstract

This paper considers the teaching of photography as a model for educational practice, and highlights skills, both instrumental and creative, that are inherent in photographic learning. Three key discussion areas are: creativity and creative skills; photography as creative practice; and the diverse cultures of students. The aim of this debate is to create an educational model, which addresses these core areas, and locates them in the broader context of photographic education within the pedagogic establishment. This will create a space between educational and industrial frameworks; a space where stakeholders can exchange ideas, appreciate related interests, and recognise the value of creative skills and thought processes as a fundamental contribution to the social and cultural purpose of education. The overall objective of this paper is to encourage all stakeholders to cross the boundaries and create a forum for the development of educational provision in collaboration.
