When I got my very first camera I walked about the Glasgow garden festival showing anyone who would listen that wasn’t it cool I had my own camera and ‘look there is even real film in it’ as I opened the back cover to show anyone who looked even remotely interested! Thankfully I have learned that that isn’t how you should treat film – or perhaps moving to digital was my real saving grace!
Since then, I just always had a camera on me! I studied photography at secondary school briefly even ‘playing’ in the dark room. I moved to digital around 2003 and a few years later, I decided to enrol on a Photoshop course and the rest as they say is history – I have now spent (a very part time) 10 years at college studying photography. I graduated in 2015 with my HNC and thought that would be the end of it but, as I was hooked (and did way better than I had expected) I ended up enrolling again and completed my HND in the Summer of 2018.
