I love being able to not just take photographs of special events, for businesses, families, product and many more photography assignments but I also enjoy teaching in my subject area of Photography. I have now taught Media and Photography for the past 10 years and I do love it. I currently work part time as a Lecturer on the Foundation Pathway at Hereward College teaching Photography and Mixed Media.
Recently I was invited as a specialist artist in Photography at the British Motor Museum in Warwickshire. For this role I passed on my skills and taught young people how to take great photographs for their project called The Life in Cars. I had such a blast especially as I absolutely love classic cars, so it was so much fun to work in such a beautiful museum. The Life in Cars project captures amazing stories told by elders, it was so lovely to hear all of their stories. The first session I taught the young people how to take a great photographs, then we set up a photography studio at the museum where the young people photographed the elders and very stunning classic cars. The last session I attended an event at the museum, in this session the young people communicated with members of the public and photographed the people and their cars. I have loved working on the the project with the young people, I was very impressed with their work. For all of the sessions I tailored my teaching and resources to the level of each of the learners in the session.
Here are some photographs from my time teaching for The Life in Cars project.
Following through I have been continuing my teaching with the British Motor Museum in Gaydon, Warwickshire and love it!
