We use professional independent photographers; these photographers are booked for the portfolio shoot when it is felt by the lecturers that the student group is ready. The shoot is run as close to a real photo-shoot as possible, it is over seen by a course lecturer who will be on hand to offer guidance to the students ensuring they achieve the best possible results.
After the photo shoot the electronic contact sheets containing all images are sent to Brushstroke. Each student, with the guidance of a lecturer will decide which images they want to use in their portfolio. The selected images are returned to the photographer for minor retouching if needed.
It is Brushstroke policy not to allow heavily retouched photographs that are not a true reflection of the students’ skills and ability. In addition, throughout the course students are encouraged to make full use of our HD Photographic studio, taking as many photographs of their work as possible.
