There is maybe no better place for your BTEC or SQA Higher students to learn about the medium of photography than Berlin, with museums and galleries hosting collections that span across the decades up to the modern day.

The photography showcased in galleries and exhibitions can often heavily feature the change in German culture across the years, from the works of Helmut Newton scattered across many galleries in the city, alongside the likes of Irving Penn and Man ray.

The Berlinische Galerie Photography Collection is one of the newest museums in the German capital and collects art from Berlin dating from 1870 to the present day, while the Camera Work Gallery specialises in contemporary photography and vintage masterworks.

But you don’t just have to be in the galleries to be learning; the streets of Berlin ooze inspiration and provide a unique take on photography. From snaps of the East Side gallery, to shots of the unique architecture, your students will be able to add plenty to their BTEC portfolio.
