The course covered everything – loads of photographers and techniques!Georgia - A Level photography
Having completed some A Levels at school, Georgia wanted to achieve Photography A Level as well, to help her towards her dream degree course.
So, she joined High Pavement Sixth Form on an intensive course.
She achieved an A grade and progressed to Leeds Arts University to study a Fashion Photography degree.
On the A Level course:
I went to Nottingham College with no idea what I was letting myself in for. But when I got there, my tutor was just magnificent. I was so nervous, but she made me so calm, she always encouraged me.
She was just everything that I needed and could have wanted. That in turn made the whole experience incredible.
The course itself covered everything – loads of photographers and techniques, so I was constantly learning. The course was fabulous!- Georgia
On having a photo featured on the Photo Vogue professional website:
I was incredibly happy and very shocked when I found out I would be published on the site.
"It’s such a great opportunity to get your name out there. It’s also really well-known, so it could lead help with future job prospects as well.- Georgia
On autism and support:
I’m autistic, and day-to-day life can be tough, when you factor in sensory overload and general anxiety, but I know that being autistic is the reason why I take the photographs I do. I have always paid attention to the small details and have always thought outside the box.
"I had a mentor from the Learning Support team at College. She was so helpful and there for me at the end of the phone, checking in on me.
"Also, just generally, the atmosphere at College is very laid back, but the teachers really want to help you learn, so it’s a lovely environment to be in.- Georgia
