This in from second year Callum Dickinson.
“I arrived back in the UK on the 30th June after spending 21 days touring with the band ‘Crossfaith’ over Europe, visiting countries such as Austria, Germany, Denmark, Czech Republic and many more. Over the course of the tour I was photographing the band, documenting live shows and also shot some work that showed the band behind the scenes. On the tour I was also selling merchandise, which allowed me to meet so many new people and also build my confidence. The tour was an amazing experience for me to not only network, but to also develop my work. Without the support of everyone within the university, especially the lecturers and my friends I wouldn’t have been able to have had this opportunity. With the help of the course and the lecturers I felt ready and confident within my own ability to deliver on what I was expected to. I am currently in conversation with various people that I met over the course of the tour about more work and am looking to be out on the road again soon”.

“Having worked with British Swimming on a number of occasions, I was able to secure a media accreditation for the British Para Swimming International Meet taking place at Sheffield’s Ponds Forge sports centre. Whilst there, I was fortunate enough to capture the moment Eliie Simmonds realised that she had achieved the European Qualifying time in the 200IM.”
Each year our third year students stage their own degree show in the West End of London and this year was as successful as previous years. Guests included working photographers, art directors, photo editors, potential clients and past graduates.

“I have been immersed with food images, cook books, magazines and recipe cards due to my mother’s passion for cooking. I narrowed down all of the thousands of ideas in these to an in depth study of vegetables.”
New module work from first year Adam Chandler.
“During the Personal Portfolio module, I decided to focus on music photography, particularly the heavy music scene. During the development of this module I switched from using a zoom lens to a 28mm prime which allowed me to get more involved with the concerts and this made the process a lot more fun and also produced more effective images. Getting more involved with each concert made me pick up on the emotions coming from the crowd and band on stage varying from aggression to unity. This module has allowed me to make so many new friends and gain so much more confidence, I’m excited to what the rest of my time at university has to offer.”
