Personal & Professional Development in Art and Design



email confirming student finance application.

One of my biggest aspirations is to re-brand my photography business to make it more contemporary, when i first started my website and designed by business cards it was my intention to reach as wide an audience as possible in the hopes of getting as much paid work as possible now that I’ve gained experience I want to narrow my target audience to the sort of work I feel I’m best suited for.

Paper work from the Norwich university college of the arts open day 2012, loved the campus and facilities but sadly the course was mainly fashion based and thus not for me.

Paper work from the Anglia Ruskin/Cambridge school of art open day.


email from fake cloathing, thinking me work i did to help them build a libary of images for a new website.


after working on an a1 portfolio i decided that it was far to big and clumsy so rather late on i reduced the size to a3,

i feel the images are alot nicer at this size and it can be held in the hands of the viewer


Using the site i made a photo book sit along side my portfolio.



CV made on word, mainly retail based currently but my next step will be to begin applying for voluntary work to gain industry experience.


My personal statement taken from the ucas site.


My tutor asked me to give a talk to the first year btec photography students, showing my portfolio and explaining how I had progressed through the 2 years of the course and through the university application process. I tried to advice the younger students to begin working on their portfolios as soon as possible putting a favourite print to one side from each project saving the hassle and expense of reprinting everything at the end of the year to prepare for interviews, the other advice I tried to stress was to look into universities as soon as possible as I struggled with my choices. This talk was witnessed by the year one btec class 2013 and E. Paxton.

during final major i have had a few opportunity to be involved in group crit sessions, this has given me the opportunity to get opinions on my ideas from a mass of people all at once.
