Capturing Awakenings

9116934076?profile=RESIZE_710xHello all, 

I’m a full-time self-employed events and life-style photographer and it's a real privilege to be invited to document the Awakenings project and to support the students at Sheffield Hallam University by providing them with some hands on industry advice and experience.

It was great to meet some of them last week via Zoom and heartening to hear about the sorts of avenues they'll be exploring. There was such a range of interest, from experimental film work with salt plates and cyanotypes to candid documentation and video work. I'm genuinely looking forward to learning something from each of them!

I often work with companies to cover events, both at home and abroad, capturing festivals, shows, symposiums and conferences. I draw on candid photography, coupled with an eye for strong composition and a consistent editing style to create modern images that convey a contemporary, film-like quality. I have been published across many national and international magazines, journals and articles and most recently I covered the Together Season for Sheffield Theatres.

I'm excited to share the professional journey I've had, to offer practical advice - which comes from balancing being an artist with being a business owner - and to help the students navigate towards their individual ambitions.

It's been really interesting to see some of the work that's emerging. I look forward to sharing some of my work over the next few weeks online and on site. I'm most looking forward to capturing the student's 'awakenings'.

Working as a writer on the show

I have heard the sentence before that writers are the worst procrastinators, but working on this show was nowhere near this statement as writers and performers worked this week from 10-4 pm each day to produce this show.
What we did in this…
