Studio Lighting

As part of our continuing lessons with Jonathan Worth, me and the talented Ed Ryder got a chance to play with a studio lighting set up one afternoon. A flash set up is very cool indeed, so Santa will be seeing one on my Christmas list soon.

Lifetime membership of the Students Union

I was recently awarded Honorary Lifetime Membership of the Coventry University Students' Union in recognition of my contribution to the Source Newspaper over the past two years.

As a photojournalist I covered all kinds of news and entertainment events, gaining a huge amount of practical experience in the process. It was a real boost to see my work in print every month too. The certificate is a great souvenir of my time with the Source so many thanks to president Tom Wood, editor Rich Hayward and former editor Jack Lowman.

May Diary

I was encouraged by professional photographer Jonathan Worth to keep a photographic diary; to carry my camera with me wherever I went and document my life. Here are a selection of the photos for the month of May 2008.

YouTube Debut

I have just uploaded my first ever YouTube video, if you follow the link at the bottom you can give it a watch. Although not truly a photographic project, the amount of stop motion photography involved really pushed my technical knowledge and it goes to show what you can achieve with a camera and a little application.

'Photocopied' tells the story of a man who must escape from an office using only a photocopier and his wits. I created it for my final Animation module at Coventry University. It took around 300 sheets of individually printed A3 paper and a lot of patience, but I'm really pleased with the results. Let me know what you reckon.
