In my first two years of studying Graphic Design, I thought I knew what areas I was interested in. But when I was given the opportunity to produce my first photoshoot I realized that I didn’t exactly know what was out there and I found a new interest!

Prior to my practicum with Partners & Hawes, I had no idea what running a professional photoshoot was like and it never seemed to appeal to me. But, from creating a shot list, to choosing talent, to running the shoot day, and working with talented photographers, I rediscovered a love for photography!

Receiving the opportunity to experience real hands-on work has influenced my course choice and gives me more confidence moving forward in my degree.
