First Year student Jacob Pattison | switching to Photography

Posted by Social Media on 15/10/2018 5:23:00 PM

 

We sat down with current first-year student Jacob Pattison to have a chat about why he decided to transfer universities to study something he loves. 

 

Did you study photography or media at school?

I didn’t actually study art or media subjects at Secondary school. I always enjoyed photography especially photojournalism. I took up photography on my own initiative, learning bit by bit and experimenting.
 

What were you hoping to study when you left school?

After leaving school I actually went and studied a Bachelor of Politics and Philosophy at a public university. I wasn’t completely satisfied and always loved photography. So after 6 months I decided to follow my passion and was looking into PSC and another University that offers photography.


Why did you choose to study PSC?

I was drawn to PSC from a friend who was a graduate and had since had a successful career as a commercial photographer, which I was really inspired by. He strongly suggested that I apply to PSC, which I did online. It was within seconds that the Future Students officer rang me after she had just received the application and before I knew it I had an interview scheduled. I was so surprised how quickly it all happened!

In 2014 Tom founded The Fox Darkroom to share his love for film photography and darkroom printing. Rather than focusing on nostalgia or trends, Tom’s practice explores the relevance of traditional processes in the contemporary landscape of photography. In 2016 Fox was extended to include a gallery which has become an outpost for photographers and the broader public to engage with photographic works.

Busting the myth: There are no jobs in photography?

Posted by Social Media on 04/09/2018 5:05:06 PM

We would like to focus on a phrase that we at PSC have all heard before. You may have been told this from an influencer in your life or you may have even said it yourself, “there are no jobs in photography”. Or, “there is no stability in a career as a creative.” So, we thought it was about time that we bust this myth wide open...

 

The cold hard facts…

Australia’s creative and digital industries – of which photography is an integral part – are two of the fastest growing sectors of our economy. Creative and digital industries represent $90 billion to the economy and employ over 6.2% of the Australian workforce, which is more than mining and agriculture (source: joboutlook.gov.au). 

In 2017, 15 700 people were employed in the photography industry alone. Of those, 57.8% of those jobs were in a full-time capacity. This does not include freelance photographers that may have also received the equivalent of a full-time workload. The job outlook website states that the photography industry as a growing sector and predicts there to be significant job growth in the next 5 years.
