Media Studies, Medical Science, Photography

Congratulations on winning the College Photography Competition.

I love the Photography A Level course I’m doing here and hope to go on to study Photography at university. The chance to work with the College’s Marketing Department, photographing events has been a great experience. Working to a brief and a deadline has given me an insight into the role of a professional photographer.

Which university have you applied to?

Bournemouth has a great course, offering experience with lots of state-of-the-art technology, but there’s a course at Falmouth University in Marine and Natural History Photography, which has also caught my eye. I will have to do the PADI diving qualification to do that course!

What else do you enjoy about College life?

The Media course I’m doing is very interesting and has given me the skills and opportunity to manipulate my photographs for different uses. For my research project, I’m investigating the use of class in reality TV, focusing specifically on programmes such as Gogglebox and The Great British Bake Off.

Do you have time for hobbies?

I’m a member of North Cheam Academy of Dance, where I study street, ballet, tap, modern and contemporary dance as well as teaching dance to 10-13 year olds. The BTEC Dance course at Coulsdon College has been fabulous as I love performing.
