What do you enjoy most about your course?
The tutorials are great and I love learning new techniques and things about photography that I never knew before.

What’s your favourite thing about The Northern School of Art? I love the whole atmosphere I guess, you’re around creative people who study art so we’re all always in the right frame of mind.


What are your next steps? I’m looking to go to Leeds College of Art to study photography and then go into industry as a fashion photographer and work with fashion magazines.

What's surprised you about your time here? I didn’t know how much we’d learn about concepts and meanings behind the photography and I really like that.
