What our students say

Art, Design & Media Student Michelle Scott

Michelle Scott

Photography has always been a passion of mine. Being able to capture a moment of someone’s life in a photograph without them knowing I am there is exciting and a great memory for me to treasure. I was finding it difficult photographing products and portraits; the one day course increased my knowledge and built my confidence in this area.”

Michelle completed the one day studio photography course, alongside her job as a retained fire-fighter and farmer; it has been a great help in setting up her own photography business.

Art, Design & Media Student Gilly Lee
