Tell me about some of your current students.
At the moment I am teaching A level photography to a student in preparation for her University application. She is really enjoying the subject area covering all the different genres of photography from traditional creative darkroom techniques to digital manipulation. I can see her really progressing and creating some great work, the joy of teaching one to one is that I can truly taylor the course to her specific interests which means in a way she is working harder and to her full ability and potential while enjoying what she is doing. I love capturing students' imagination, nurturing, encouraging and inspiring them, we all learn from each other through the journey and process I think that is what makes me a good teacher and why I love what I do.
Do you have a personal message for students?
