My Exhibition Piece

Mountain Ringlet is a printed zine that looks at Britain's only true mountain butterfly species and my experiences of trying to photograph it. The zine takes influence from traditional nature guide books and DIY fanzine culture whilst featuring images taken on a DLSR and iPhone.  

Art Medium of Preference 

A mixture of Photography, Print Media and Filmmaking. 

Why I Did a Master's Degree

I chose this MA to explore new areas of practice with access to expert feedback and teaching in the new areas. This course gave me the time and direction to learn and practice new skills. 

What Is Next for Me

My plan post-MA is to establish my career as a freelance outdoor media creator whilst carrying out a number of personal projects in both digital and physical media before the end of the year, the main one being another printed zine focusing on Fell Running culture.
