What University Level course do you teach?
I teach on the HND Photography Pathway course
What is your background experience?
My personal photography practice is based mainly in the analogue world, the experimental nature of my own work allows me to support students to experiment in their own work.
Having worked in the creative sector both freelance and within organisations, I try to offer students balanced advice and guidance on their next steps.
One thing you are proud of (own achievement or student achievement)?
I’m proud of all my students’ achievements, but seeing students take on client work confidently and professionally and producing work that they are proud of really makes my year!
ABOUT YOUR COURSE…
What is the best thing about the course you teach?
Seeing students finding their own voice as a creative professional, as their confidence builds the work they produce begins to develop a unique style.
What key skills do your students learn that they can use within employment?
During their time with us students gain a wide variety of experiences and skills, we focus on running our departments as though it was a professional studio. This industry led process allows students to seamlessly transition into employment with the skills and knowledge to hit the ground running.
What career routes can your students go into after completing their University Level course?
A lot of our students’ progress on to higher levels of education or set up their own businesses as a freelancer.
Why would you recommend studying a University Level course at Boston College?
We offer the same facilities found at most university campuses but with a much higher level of one to one tutorial time, this means I can be not only up to date but actively involved in students projects supporting them to achieve academic and creative goals.
