"Throughout college photography was a passion of mine, and I found myself spending all my spare time in the photography department and in the darkroom. So naturally when I left school I decided to turn my passion into a career. I love what I do every day! I have a passion for fashion photography and I love going to work, which is something I hope to continue to do for the rest of my life. There's not a day I don't learn something new, develop new skills, meet amazing photographers, or grow as a photographer and an artist.

If you're passionate about photography and willing to work hard to make a name for yourself, then go for it! The workload can be stressful sometimes, but as long as you have good time management and a strong passion for photography you'll love the freedom the programme provides. The small class numbers meant that I was able to develop very strong relationships with my peers and tutors. It was a very relaxed and friendly environment, and the tutors were very personable and always willing to help."
