My name is Georgina Stewart. Originally from London, I now live in Pembrokeshire, Wales. I have enrolled at the OCA to study for a BA (Hons) in Photography.

At 23 years old, I have already earned two degrees, a BA (Hons) in Religious Studies and a MA (Merit) in Islamic Studies. But I have always been interested in photography and so decided on a change in direction from my previous studies. Photography has always been a part of my life; from a young age I was taking photos, encouraged by my family to experience the creativeness of photography. My family are all keen photographers, with my grandfather running his own photographic business. Living in Pembrokeshire, with all its beautiful scenery makes it a prime spot for any photographer; I really enjoy discovering new locations and photographing them.

I am doing the Expressing your Vision, Context and Narrative and the Identity and Place courses this year in order to work towards completing the BA (Hons) in Photography. I would like to be able to discover new areas of photography, which would allow me to develop and gain new skills. I have mainly been interested in landscape photography but would like to expand into other areas. I also enjoy taking pictures of my six dogs. I would like to really progress and learn new techniques and the technical information behind it. I believe by completing this course and progressing towards the degree it will provide me with a firm foothold in the world of photography.

I love Nikon’s cameras and lens, and am currently using a Nikon D610 and a Nikon D3300. I use Nikon and Sigma lens, and have also started using Lee filter system, which I have found a valuable resource in landscape photography.

I will be updating my learning log as I complete the course exercises and assignments.
