“Certainly joining the MA was the right option for me. Coming from a background in self-taught sports photography, it really cemented my desire to take the leap and give it 100% with the aim to be a full time working photographer. Funding from the Arts Council and my book are direct results of attending the University, and with this, brought numerous commercial commissions and opportunities.”
