Student Case Studies:
“Studying Photography has increased my confidence in my artistic abilities. It has given me the opportunity to experiment with my ideas and develop them to a sophisticated level. I’ve also had the chance to integrate Photography with skills I already possessed for example incorporating my passion for dance, through pose and costume, and extreme and abstract make-up art”
