This is my updated site, where I will be photoblogging as part of the course requirements for MA photography through Falmouth University.
I work part time as a music teacher in a large secondary school in Northamptonshire, with a relatively recent (a few years) interest in photography. However, I have discovered that I’m at my happiest when there is a camera in my hand – I’m sure that the act of taking a photograph creates physiological changes that increases my sense of well-being.
With my children now living in various parts of the world, I have a few more opportunities to travel and explore new horizons. I currently also volunteer with Northants Search and Rescue.
Earlier this year I was accepted onto the flexible learning MA Photography degree at Falmouth University, and started it in September 2017 as part of the ‘Forties’ cohort, which I understand to be a shipping forecast term. We forties are the fourth intake onto the degree (there being three per year).
My Critical Research Journal will appear on my home page, and will be a place for me to reflect on my learning and creative output week by week as an integral requirement of the course. Already I have discovered that there are lots of opportunities for interaction and discussion with other students and staff. I consider myself extremely fortunate as well as very excited to be having the opportunity to do this, and am looking forward to the whole experience and wherever it takes me.
