Sean has made a salient point.
My work, as a fine art photographer is often preliminary to the artist
handwork or as a final stage. In such cases both signatures are used on the final piece of art work.
To add perhaps a final quip in this sisypheran topic. The London Academy Schools of Art, including photography, take about seven years to get the graduates to a full state of competence in all processes.
A far as photography is concerned, such a graduate will be skilled to follow the various processes through to the end.
It may transpire that in his/her professional life it may not be feasible to complete all the work themselves. Nevertheless, they are in a position, skill wise, to make a judgement, to obtain the very best for the finished work.
Just to keep things in perspective.
What is C-Print®?
C-Print ®is a speech-to-text system developed at the National Technical Institute for the Deaf (NTID), a college of Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT), as an access service option for some deaf and hard-of-hearing students in educational environments. It was developed by researchers to improve the classroom experience for students at both the secondary and college levels.
The basis of C-Print is printed text of spoken English displayed in real time, which is a proven and appropriate means of acquiring information for some individuals who are deaf or hard-of-hearing.
The name C-Print reflects the real-time provision of text that can be seen-the sound of the letter C corresponds to the word see. C also is the first letter of the word computer and reflects the nature of the system's computer-based operation.
What are the "The London Academy Schools of Art"? Do you mean the Royal Academy Schools (run very much in the traditon of all the 18th/19th C national "Academies")? Their courses are three year post-graduate academy programmmes. So yes, it's probably 7 years once you have done a BA before that somewhere, but it's not a "seven year programme"
Do you mean the Royal College of Art? Those are also generally post-graduate courses
Do you mean the University of the Arts? (London College of Communication (formerly Printing), Camberwell etc)? Everything from Summer Schools to MA's
Or the Slade?
I'm having a bit of trouble working out who exactly the The London Academy Schools of Art are? As well as what this seven year course is?
The Royal Academy of Arts London, diploma course, for MA and RA is a seven year haul!
