Portfolio

I chose Manchester because of a number of reasons, Firstly its reputation as a highly rated art education centre, which I feel will best help me to develop my skills to enable me to further my photography career.

Having studied Fine art at college for two years I have particular interest in photography, and this course offers the freedom I need to experiment with my own ideas as well as training me to use traditional processes. Learning new techniques is something I am particularly looking forward to.

I draw my inspirations from photographers such as Samuel john Butts and Adam Kola who both encapsulate a narrative within their images. My portfolio includes pictures that are currently being used on Siggeir M. Hafsteinssons website (www.digital.sys.is ), Decyfer on (http://www.discogs.com/), The Studio Rockers Website, (http://www.studiorockers.co.uk/) and a picture of the Liverpool War Museum on schmap (

Manchester is also local to me and I feel it has everything I need from both an educational and lifestyle perspective, with a broad range of cultural and leisure activities available, which inspires me to be more creative.
