Photography Trip To London!

On Tuesday 6th and Friday 9th June, The Art Department took the Yr10 Photography students to London for a photoshoot to support their current topic.

The students have been working hard on their chosen topics based around, Urban living, Contrast, Movement and Framing. The trip was an enriching day for the students and a great opportunity for them to take a range of photographs to support their coursework.

We caught the Jubilee line up to Liverpool street, where the students were able to take photos of the modern buildings. They loved the vast range of structures, and all started avidly taking photos from different angles and perspectives.

This was a great contrast to the ruins of St Dunstan, which was originally built around 1100 and is a Grade I listed building. The Church was severely damaged in the Blitz of 1941 leaving its iconic arches.

From there we walked past Tower of London and across Tower Bridge. We had a rest break at Potters Field Park, with the view of Thames in front of us. Our next destination was the Tate Modern.  We walked up past HMS Belfast, along Bankside to the Tate. The Tate Modern is a fantastic gallery, showcasing a huge range of artwork but the building, which used to be an old power station, is also interesting and has some great views from some of the balconies.  

Our final route back was along South Bank, past the skateboarding park and to Waterloo Station.

It was a successful day out. The students enjoyed themselves and have taken a huge amount of photos to support their studies.
