This unit standard does not replace any other unit standard and is not replaced by any other unit standard. 

PURPOSE OF THE UNIT STANDARD 
Purpose:

The purpose of the learning is to enable a learner to be able to produce and present photographic images in either an analogue or a digital photographic environment.

This Unit Standard contributes to the competence of those learners who want to pursue a career in the Photographic and/or Design sector, and contribute to greater levels of production and quality in this sector. The Unit Standard encompasses image development processes and a variety of presentation techniques of photographic rendered images.

Credited learners are capable of:
  • Selecting suitable process for output according to brief criteria.
  • Processing images for a chosen output media or application.
  • Rendering photographic image outputs according to specified criteria.
  • Presenting and storing final photographic images according to identified criteria of the photographic brief. 

  • LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE AND RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING 
    Iis assumed that learners are competent in:
  • Communication at NQF Level 3.
  • Mathematic Literacy at NQF Level 3.
  • Scientific measurements and description of colours, resolution, and light at NQF level 2.
  • Produce a presentation using basic functions at NQF Level 2.
  • Culture and Arts at NQF Level 1.

    PROVIDERS CURRENTLY ACCREDITED TO OFFER THIS UNIT STANDARD: 
    This information shows the current accreditations (i.e. those not past their accreditation end dates), and is the most complete record available to SAQA as of today. Some Primary or Delegated Quality Assurance Functionaries have a lag in their recording systems for provider accreditation, in turn leading to a lag in notifying SAQA of all the providers that they have accredited to offer qualifications and unit standards, as well as any extensions to accreditation end dates. The relevant Primary or Delegated Quality Assurance Functionary should be notified if a record appears to be missing from here.
