“My Country Shows Of Gloucestershire series has been featured in the latest issue of The Countryman as a five page photo essay! The publication is a popular rural magazine and is another aspect of promotion for my photo book, which was released at the beginning of June. I am currently doing a lot of promotion for the book which includes attending many shows. I am also doing a book signing at this years Autumn Malvern Show at the Three Counties Show ground on Sunday 24th September.

“I am delighted and honoured to have been shortlisted for the 2017 South West Graduate Photography prize having entered with a selection of images from my series Planted. Eight finalists have been chosen and our work will be in exhibition at PHOTOBLOCK 2017, Old Truman Brewery, London, later in the year and one overall winner will then be chosen by industry professionals to win a paid commission.
This competition has been running since 2010 and graduates from photography courses in the south west are invited to enter. It’s one of the few free to enter competitions, so I highly recommend all the new third years entering the 2018 competition next year.”

“I have recently been in contact with a local secondary school and sixth form about the issues surrounding social media and the way it can affect the mental health of students. I showed them my film – created as part of my FMP – and they were eager to work with me . As a result they want me to host an evening for parents and invite local organisations to show them the film and lead a presentation on research around the subject which I feel well prepared for having done a lot research into the topic for my Final Major Project”.
“Having spoken with the Head of Support at the school, my passion and drive to publicise this matter has heightened as more and more people are talking and noticing this problem but there’s a lack of guidance of how to tackle the issue”.
T”his is a positive step the right direction for me and I am keen to see how it develops. I am pleased that my film is having the desired impact on a wider audience and allowing me to create a conversation from the issues it address’s”.

“My project documenting numerous country shows across Gloucestershire is going to be released as a 128 page photo book on the 15th June this year! The publication has been really hard work, requiring a lot of time, determination and commitment but the experience has all been worth it. As well as spending the whole of last summer shooting it, I’ve spent days going though edits, writing content, organising files, completing promotional questionnaires, emailing, submitting author biographies and researching. The Professional Practice module completed on the Ed&Ad course really helped me to achieve this and I’m so excited to see my book on the shelves very soon! It is available to pre-order on Amazon now and I will be keeping everyone up to date with its release on my Twitter and Instagram (@HollieC_Photo). https://www.amazon.co.uk/Country-Shows-Gloucestershire-Hollie-Crawshaw/dp/1445674300/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1496261019&sr=8-1&keywords=Country+Shows+of+Gloucestershire
