STUDENT PROFILE

TEIGAN BASHFORD What do you enjoy most about your course? It’s unusual for a college to have the facilities of a dark room; I was surprised as no other college I looked at had a dark room. It’s so unique to be taught that and it really sold it for me. What’s your favourite thing about The Northern School of Art? All the people - we learn new things from each other every day. What are your next steps? I’m planning on going straight into industry after college as I feel like I’ve been prepped really well by the course. I’ve been working on my portfolio a lot and I’ve started social media accounts for my work too! What's surprised you about your time here? I didn’t know what opportunities it would open you up to and provide you with. I didn’t know how much the course would actually cover! I really thought it would just be taking pictures with a camera that I didn’t really know how to use, but it’s not that at all.
