About

Hello,

I have just started what I hope will be an amazing adventure on the May 2017 intake of the MA Photography!

I am looking forward to learning more about myself as a photographer having come from interests in the natural world and a career in Clinical Psychology and Neuropsychology. I aspire to greater technical competence and knowledge as well as having the opportunity to refine the types and styles of photography that I am most suited to through the journey this course will take me on. Who knows where this may lead me…..

How to find your way around

How to find your way around

Each of my posts will be under a module title for the MA Photography course at Falmouth University. These are listed on the title page as Positions and Practice, Informing Contexts, Surfaces and Strategies, Sustainable Prospects and Final Major Project. There are three categories within each of these referring to the activities I will be completing and commenting on each week. These are to be found in the drop down menu under the module titles and are:

Contextual research (what I have read, heard, watched and experienced in relation to the course activities)

Course work (my responses to the weekly tasks and activities)

Project development (my progress with assignments and projects)
