Martin Walch

The Photography Studio provides you with the opportunity to explore and develop your own conceptual and visual potential through the use and understanding of the medium.

You will be introduced to a variety of technical skills using light-sensitive materials and camera-generated images, and encouraged to use this knowledge in furthering the individual expression of your own concepts and concerns.

Preconceived notions of photography are continually challenged as you progress through the program. The flexible nature of the course allows for a diverse range of work and experimentation. Never stop learning and never cease to be excited.

Head of Studio: Dr Martin Walch

Academic Staff: Dr Linda Erceg

Technician: Gerrard Dixon

If you would like to discuss your own practice or ambitions, contact our Photography studio to arrange a one-on-one consultation today.


A broad range of technical approaches are embraced, spanning traditional analogue silver based and digital print processes. The large open plan of the Photography Studio includes a teaching/critique area, analogue darkrooms, controlled lighting studio, digital darkrooms and a state of the art print centre specialising in fine art ink-jet prints up to 1 x 2 metres in scale.

Loan equipment is available to advanced students including lights, tripods, flash units, large format analogue cameras and digital cameras.
