I’m very pleased to say that two of the students that I have been working with over the last year or so are showing some of their work in London over from tomorrow (Friday 27th April) until Tuesday 8th May. The work will be on the walls at Calumet Photographic’s Drummond Street showroom. The students have both now left the NCTJ Photojournalism course at Up To Speed in Bournemouth and are making their way into the industry.
Deborah Yawetz – My interests are wide ranging; there is so much world to see, and people to walk in the shoes of! I enjoy news and wildlife photography: though seemingly different, both have a sense of immediacy, both are challenging and require patience, then finally responding to the moment. I have travelled a lot, most recently to Rwanda and the Serengeti.
I have published work in DV8 magazine in Bournemouth, Shed light events in London and a photo in the Daily ” Echo, Bournemouth. Work experience includes with Redactive publishing and The Times.
Elizabeth Wainwright – I’ve worked on programmes for NGOs in the UK and in various African countries, and I saw a lot that never seemed to be documented by the media, or to donors. Combining this insight with recent editorial experience on the UK’s longest running environmental magazine, and of course the Photojournalism training, means I am well-placed to bridge the gap between theory and practice; truth and cliché; and do so in an informed, thoughtful way.
I am equally interested in finding homegrown stories: urban beekeeping and UK homelessness are two local stories I am working on. ” The power of storytelling to inspire and trigger change at whatever level – is ultimately what motivates my work.
