It shall give tips from myself, reflecting on personal experiences in the industry and other photographers that have inspired me. I will be posting some of my work as I start the industry and other helpful pieces of media that I will shall help other trainee photojournalists starting their career.

Craig Holland Conversion

This is my first image to ever make a printed newspaper, printed in the Cornishman on Thursday 2nd January and taken at the game on Thursday 26th December. This image is of Craig Holland converting The Cornish Pirates only try in the 10-3 home victory over rivals Plymouth Albion.

I got this opportunity to photograph this professional match whilst at work experience with Phil Mocton, the leading photographer for my local paper ‘The Cornishman’. I could not recommend young photographers to apply for different work experiences as this is the best way of learning what life in the industry is really like. It allowed me to experience day-to-day work as a photojournalist in which I really enjoyed and was proud of my images achievement above.
