I have always loved photography, but I didn’t start taking it seriously until I took my art foundation degree. For those of you who don’t know what this is, it is a course that you take before a Art based degree, but after your A-levels, I was basically a year of fun, and year to discover what you want to do, and develop your skills before university. In our second term we got to decide what we wanted to specialise in and I chose photography! The course was based in the amazing village of Bournvillle, it is like going back in time and the big bonus is…it is next door to Cadbury world!! You could smell the chocolate

In the February we all boarded a coach, and endured the 12 hour coach journey and the roughest ferry crossing ever (We all had to lie on the floor.) to Paris, I loved Paris so much! I really want to go back, every year I say I am going to do it but so far no luckBelow are two photographs taken on the roof terrace of our hotel where we could see all the way to the Eiffel Tower.

During my foundation, I built my portfolio up enough to secure me an place at Nottingham Trent University, on a photography degree course. Here are a few of those portfolio images.
