Last Week we had the great pleasure of spending some time with one of our very talented Photouclan Alumni, fashion photographer Bartlomeij Staszowski. Bart was spending some time with our year 2 students showing the latest directions his work is taking and his journey into industry from UCLan.
Thank you for the advice and inspiration!
Bart also shared his advice and amazing studio lighting skills with us in our workshop time, helping students refine their lighting skills.
Our first years have just completed a portraiture project using B&W film.
Most of the first years had never shot film before they arrived at UCLan, so getting to this standard in just 12 weeks is remarkable. Big thanks are due to our darkroom guru Jo Garrett and our workshop tutor David Gregory. Great work everyone!
