"I chose this course because I want to be able to photograph the clothing I make in an interesting and beautiful way. Taking this course has taught me how to use my camera to its full potential and Ive particularly enjoyed learning how different types of light work on bone structure and faces. It has been fantastic learning from my tutor Leigh Keily, a true professional in the field and to also share ideas with fellow students who bring different styles and perspectives to the assignments. London is an amazing city to study in with its wide variety of cultures, art and food, it is easy to take inspiration from everywhere. It feels like the city was built for creativity." - Caitlin Decker, USA
