I’ve always loved photography, I studied it in college and wanted to do more with it, but I was advised to pursue something more ‘academic’ as my parents’ photographer friends were struggling to find work after having high-flying careers back in the 80s and 90s.
So I studied English, and in the years since I’ve left university all I’ve wanted to do is photography and creative stuff, and I’ve had to teach myself. So what was the point? I should’ve gone to uni and studied photography or art and spent my years doing large format printing and creating amazing images and learning how to use all the creative programs I’ve had to learn through tutorials instead of sitting with my nose in books I had no interest in.
I just paid to do a tutorial in giclee printing, if I’d done a photography degree I would’ve probably learnt that then! "
