Photography 1: The Art of Photography

I’d been toying with the idea of a photography degree for some time, but never quite had the courage. Perhaps the most scary thing was the idea that I would have to submit my photos to proper professional scrutiny. I was also in two minds about trying to have my previous experience (nearly 30 years as a keen amateur) accredited – for the same reason.
In the end I took the plunge, submitted a portfolio and kept my fingers crossed. I’m delighted to say that the panel thought the portfolio was worth the 40 CATS points, and that I have passed this module of the degree on my past experience. Next up, Digital Photographic Practice. The work starts here.
For anyone that’s interested my TAOP portfolio is in this slideshow:
