Entering into a creative career can be exciting, challenging, full of passion and rewards ... but it also takes determination and adaptability. We recently had the pleasure to meet up with three PSC alumni - Taylor-Ferne Morris, Sarah Lynch and Emma McEvoy - at our Image Makers Seminar and hear where their careers post graduating have taken them.
It is always so enjoyable to hear from our alumni, and this week we have had the excitement of double updates from two of our graduates! Rakuto Makino and Hiroki Nagahiro, both originally born in Japan, graduated from PSC's Advanced Diploma of Photography in 2013 and 2014 respectively. Specialising in PSC's art photography stream saw Rakuto exhibited in the Fresh 13 and Secret Street exhibitions in 2013 with his work "Yata-Garasu". This Japanese legend inspired series reflected on Rakuto's experiences, the process of creating and the journey of self-discovery.

The Thirty One Exhibition opening night on Thursday 17 December at the OKLA Gallery was the highlight of the year for the graduating Bachelor students. A wonderful evening was had by all, filled with good cheer and celebration.
Photojournalism Major student Daniel Pockett was one of the 3 finalists for the 2015 AIPP Australian Student Photographer of the Year at the recent Australian Professional Photography awards (APPAs). Taking home both Gold and Silver Distinction awards, and in the process one of the highest overall scores in Australia for a student, Daniel shares his experience with us below:
Initially I wanted to be a cinematographer (being a big film buff) and studied film & TV, but moving overseas meant I never got to finish that course. Then around 2007 I was given my first decent camera and this prompted my move into stills.
PSC was absolutely delighted to host the Victorian Minister for Training and Skills the Hon Steve Herbert yesterday. The visit was organized by the Australian Council for Private Education and Training, (ACPET) which planned a tour of its member institutions in the CDB area.
