Student ambassador

On 7th January, I decided I want to become a student ambassador… so I emailed Junkeo (shown below). A couple of days before I emailed Junkeo, I ended up accidently being an ambassador whilst getting a coffee from the Duke Street building whilst getting a coffee and ended up speaking to someone’s parents.

On Wednesday, 13th April, I met with Hayley at The Open after sending an Email to Peter about my recent work and if they needed/knew anyone who wanted photography work.

Learning to love to lose

I’ve learned to love losing (on a micro level). Losing/failure gives me so much more of a drive to improve and deliver something better next time for the audience. Before my motivation levels and my drive were like they are and before listening to Gary Vee (screenshot above), I used to dwell so much on…

Evaluation of my mental ‘bad place’

I’ve mentioned that I wasn’t in a good place to many of the tutors (Junkeo, Andi, Matt, Richard). I mentioned it in my Narrative project evaluation (slide 123) and I wanted to build upon it one last time, to explain, to show where I’ve progressed from and for me, to stay humble. The reason I…

Playhouse exhibition

Whilst browsing social media, I found a post from Norwich Playhouse looking for art work to exhibit. I got an email across to them straightaway. I also mention Kieran McMullan to Emily (playhouse coordinator) to get his work featured as I know his quality and landscape work. Taking on board what James A Grant said,…

Photography Documentary Masterclass – London

Yesterday, I went to Shoreditch, London at the print space gallery to see documentary photographers give talks on the industry and how they have lived through it. The genre isn’t exactly where the money is but for me is the most rewarding when you document and create a real life story through a body of…

New Personal project idea: Train journeys

Since I’ve gotten a good understanding into narrative and photo projects, I’m coming up with ideas for new books or projects to keep me busy and to keep improving. The image above is of my board at home where I’ve come up with idea of a travel project. Inbetween the pictures and my travels, I…
