Week 11 – reflection

The talk given by photographer Felicity McCabe as part of this week's work was quite an interesting one; it reminded me a little of my younger self. McCabe, who was advised by her tutor that "you'll learn more there" following her continued work experience with Nadav Kander during her course, seemed to find it difficult … Continue reading Week 11 – reflection

Week 10 – reflection

I've been a tad side-lined this week as halfway through my husband broke his foot so I took a few nights away from my CRJ and project work to focus on him (and do all the chores/dog walking he has been doing to support me with my MA work schedule). But what I have thoroughly … Continue reading Week 10 – reflection

Harena Now – new angles

I have decided to try a new angle with Harena Now. Although I will still solely be making my work with sand, seawater and UV, I have been considering using sourced images of the people and place effected by the sand crisis. I have also recently been experimenting with double exposure images of the pre … Continue reading Harena Now – new angles

Week 9 – reflection

Quick chat – webinar

I couldn't stay too long at tonight's webinar, but I had the chance to run through my work-in-progress portfolio with my tutor, Krishna. It was reassuring to be told that I am on the right track with a strong set of images. Advice was provided about making sure that when I choose my final set … Continue reading Quick chat – webinar

Week 8 – reflection

During this week's course work we have looked at the selling of photography. Who buys it and why. And how to price your work competitively. In the past few years, working with ShutterPod, I have predominantly worked on delivering workshops to either individuals, groups or through commissioned events for health-related organisations. For this work, I … Continue reading Week 8 – reflection

Week 7 – reflection

The emphasis in this week's course work has been on the commercial aspects of photography. How do you start to 'sell' yourself as a photographer/photo-artist. And can you cross from one to the other? Having started my photographic life in a commercial advertising studio where one day I may be building a room set to … Continue reading Week 7 – reflection

Marketing update

Back in week four we were tasked to put together an outline marketing plan for this module. See here for full article: josiepurcellphotographyma.wordpress.com/2017/10/21/week-4-reflection/. I wrote that I wanted "Harena Now to have gained traction and recognition within a number of topic-relative disciplines" and my objectives to achieve this are: Make connections with two local and … Continue reading Marketing update
