STUDENT PROFILE

BELLA GRAHAM What do you enjoy most about your course? The tutorials are great and I love learning new techniques and things about photography that I never knew before.

What's surprised you about your time here? I didn’t know how much we’d learn about concepts and meanings behind the photography and I really like that.
