Winchester was a great place to study; the School of Art was ideal as a campus, being close enough to London for all the galleries, events, and private views, but also situated within relaxed, quiet surroundings, which I found perfect for creativity

There was always a great atmosphere and work ethic within the studio, the result of the exceptional staff who run the course, know the creative industries, and are very aware of preparing students for careers in them. I believe that the teaching staff, design and structure of the course, facilities and the amount of contact time as a student you have with staff makes the course stand out.

The course recently ran an exhibition in Brick Lane in London, which was great to be part of, and I've also exhibited at the D&AD New Blood. While studying, I did some work for YCN and the advertising company VCCP, and since graduating

I've moved up to London and worked for ELLE Magazine photographing Reading Festival, as well as being part of a creative writing workshop run by Charlie Dark at Nike 1948.
