work placement

WEEK 6

This past week and a bit has been incredible. Sadly, my work placement has now come to an end with James Day but the whole experience has been truly uplifting. A few guest lecturers we have had in the past at Falmouth have said there isn't a lot going after uni for photographers, but for me, this has completely flipped that remark on its backside. Yeah, it's a competitive industry and will most likely be a challenge, but it's definitely possible if you have the drive and passion for it!

It was really nice to be back in London this last week as well, however, I feel as though I had a much different mindset in comparison to my last visit. My last trip was back in 2014 I believe which was when I was still completing my Art Foundation Diploma and at that point, I wasn't generally thinking about possible careers in the future. I was just enjoying taking photographs. Now, I'm on the verge of starting 3rd year at University and after that, the real world kicks in...

I managed to fit in a quick trip to Westminster Bridge whilst I was there, just over a week after the attack involving the policeman who was stabbed outside parliament. In truth, it was quite a surreal experience knowing what had taken place and yet everything seemed back to normal. 

Thoughts go out to everyone who was affected by this attack.

WEEK 5

This week so far has been absolutely insane! I'm currently on my first trip of the year to London where I'm undergoing work experience with the fantastic photographer James Day. Him and his head assistant, Harry are currently giving me an insight into the profession of photography which so far has been incredibly enlightening. I've been here all of 3 days and I've already gained so much from this experience, including getting to assist on a professional photo shoot which was a real highlight!

I've also had the chance to briefly explore this incredible city which I know I'm going to be seeing a lot more of this year. I've already been to London a number of times in the past, but this has been the first time I've actually ventured into china town which still had decor up from Chinese New Year, so naturally I had to get some shots in.
