“Whilst at university I worked with the interiors brand Topology and as they grew as a company we developed a good working relationship. When they began a collaborative project with Habitat I was the first photographer they mentioned and Habitat contacted me after looking at my website and commissioned me for the job. The images I have created have been used on their blog and social media channels.”

News in from 2016 graduate Ben large.
“Since our end of year exhibition I have kept in touch with many contact’s that came to see our degree show in London. These contacts have led to commissions, assisting work and ongoing conversations and guidance in my career. After meeting the picture editor of The Telegraph and showing him my reportage work we stayed in touch. This has led to my first tabloid commission and having one of my images printed in The Telegraph. “
“This commission was a great opportunity for me to gain some trust in my competence as a photographer and apply what I had learned on the course. I really couldn’t have achieved without the contacts the lecturers gave me and the help I received in communicating by telephone in the Professional Practice module. It really changed a lot for me!”
“Hope you guys are having a great 2018, will keep you posted on how things progress.”

“As I was leaving the UK I was already applying for jobs back home which I found interesting. I was invited to two interviews and the second one was successful for me as I was hired as a production assistant at Czech public television in Prague (the equivalent of the BBC in the UK). My work is based mainly around organising documentary film shoots and post-production.
“In my free time, I intend to shoot a personal work based around the Czech Republic as my homeland. The idea came to me when I realised that after travelling in Europe and living in the UK for three years I know only two places here properly – my hometown in the south and Prague. These two areas are both frequently visited by tourists and that is what I would like to avoid. I want to force myself to go with my camera to cities and towns which are not in the tourist guides but equally important for an honest portrait of the country. I believe that this work will be relevant and actual since 2018 has a symbolic meaning for Czechs. The country declared independence hundred years ago after the First World War, the Munich agreement was signed eighty years ago and the Soviet’s army occupation started fifty years ago. It seems like a good time for creating a portrait of the country from my own perspective.”
“I hope everyone on the course is doing well and I wish you all the best of luck in 2018.”

News if from 2017 graduate Rebecca Horton.

“I am working as an editorial assistant within a company who produce vegan titles including Vegan Life, PlantBased and an additional trade title. Since being here from early December I’ve been writing online content for their daily news articles and editorial content for the magazines. Cruelty free beauty is a personal interest of mine and over time I’m hoping to write about this for their online platforms. As I settle in I’m gradually being trusted with writing larger pieces and able to write about things I’m passionate about. I’m currently working on an environmental piece for the March issue of Vegan Life magazine.”

News in from 2016 graduate Emma Boyns.

“I’ve been BBC Good Food’s House Photographer for about six weeks now, and I’m thoroughly enjoying the day-to-day tasks that await me each morning and the challenges that are helping me grow both creatively and professionally. I’ve been shooting both in the test kitchen and the studio, creating images for the magazine, website and the brand’s social media platforms. I’m loving working with such a committed team and such supportive, talented people and it’s both bazaar and amazing to think that I’m contributing to Britain’s biggest-selling food magazine; a brand that I’ve always used and, even six months ago, couldn’t imagine my work being featured in”.

“I’m looking forward to putting my all into the internship over the next few months and creating some work I’m really proud of and contacts that will prove valuable to me in the future”.

“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.
