    I am currently deciding whether photography is possible for me.
    I didn't have the option to do photography at sixthform and I did art at GCSE and got a B grade. I didn't carry it on though.
    As I do photography as a hobby, would I be able to apply for it this year?
    I do not have a portfolio, but photography is something I'd love to do as a job in the future. How do I go about creating a portfolio, if needed?

    Hey there,

    It is possible but you would need a portfolio for when you apply. It's okay if you didn't do much of it at sixth form but if you have examples of the photography you carried out in your own time as a hobby, you would need to show this.

    Here are some tips and guidance on the format and content of putting a good portfolio together.

    I hope this helps! Would you be applying for 2018 entry? If so you'd still have time to come along to one of our Open Days next year where you'll be able to get more advice about your portfolio and speak to a photography tutor.

    All the best!
