    Photography is a bit useless imo but it depends what a levels/career you want to go into?
    Both are a lot of work.
    Also, dont listen to your teachers completely, they just want to make you take their subjects lol

    Then textiles is pretty irrelevant idk. You can try media studies if you have that option? Photography is kind of like a bonus/extra but if you enjoy it take it!

    Hey there, Dal.b10!

    If you set on doing photography, I would recommend you do an art base subject for GCSEs or a design and media base subject. Later when you apply for college, you can pursue Photograph and learn about it more about the subject then. For you to take Photograph, it is best for you to have at least 5 GCSEs (C or above) to get in. If you want, you can go to university to study it as well!

    Feel free to check out Ravensbourne when the time comes.

    Goodluck!
