End Of Year Show

I have now finished my time at college having completed a BTEC in ART + DESIGN achieving a Distinction Distinction Merit grade.


I'm third in from the left.

Here's some of my final major project of which I won a 'Digital Media: Photography' Award! :)








My theme was high speed photograhy - capturing events that the human eye cannot see. This then evolved into the work using multiple flash exposures during motion to show the movement in one image. I got a friend to perform Parkour - l'art du déplacement (the art of movement) and had two friends firing off flashes manually while I looked after the camera.

The Beetles



Beatles Ringo Starr and George Harrison on board aircraft, June 1964
Photographer: Morrie Hill

I'm sure that a few Pentaxians have seen this classic photo of George Harrison apparently trying to figure out one of the dials of his new Pentax.
