One of the main reasons I started this blog was to create a space to display my photographs and build an online portfolio, with the hope that it might allow me not only to share my work, but also that it would open doors for me in the months and years to come. I am so, so, excited to announce that today, one of those doors was flung wide open – I have been accepted on to the Wildlife Flim-making masters course at the University of the West of England, and will be starting the next step towards my dream career in September.
I cannot thank the readers of this blog enough, as knowing that there are people out there who like what I do and think I do it well is what led to me applying in the first place. Yes, it is a bit of a move over to the dark side (apologies to all my die-hard fellow UoB alumni), but I this course offers opportunities that I cannot even begin to fathom, and I can see myself learning and growing so much from it.
After years of studying, traveling when I could afford to, and taking every chance I could to get out with my camera, my hard work has finally started to pay off. I have found myself at the start of what promises to be a very, very exciting journey, and I can’t wait to begin.
So, while there are no pictures today, I instead offer you a massive heart-felt thanks from a girl up on cloud nine. UWE, I’ll see you in the autumn.
