Commercial photography exhibition on display
A range of projects by Commercial Photography students at Gray’s School of Art, including a series of portraits featuring cancer patients and a lifesize canvas of swimming star Hannah Miley, have gone on display.
The 18 students currently in third year of the BA Commercial Photography course were tasked with creating images that could be used by a commercial client as part of their major projects.
The RGU BA Commercial Photography course is the only one of its kind in Scotland that allows students to progress from an HND at college to gain a degree in just one year at university, with students now able to choose to stay on for an honours year.
The course combines practical photography with key activities in relation to business start-up, as well as theoretical study, and is delivered jointly by Gray’s School of Art and Aberdeen Business School at the university, alongside Aberdeen College.

Mick Eason, Course Leader, said: “The range of subjects that our students have covered in their projects this year is extremely impressive and will make for a fantastically diverse exhibition.
“I’m delighted that for the first time since we launched this course in 2009 we are now able to offer students the chance to continue on to do an honours year, providing a wider educational experience.”
The public exhibition will take place in the main foyer at Gray’s School of Art, Garthdee Road, Aberdeen, from Tuesday, May 13 to Saturday, May 17.
