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, Philosophy and Economics at a public university. I wasn’t completely satisfied with the course and always loved photography. So after 6 months I decided to follow my passion. I withdrew from my course and started researching different photography courses.
So you were looking at a few different options for photography?
Yes, I was looking into PSC and a public university that offers photography. I was originally wanting to do a Bachelor of Arts and minoring in photography, but then decided that I wanted to purely focus on photography. I knew if I really wanted to emerge myself in the industry then doing a Bachelor of Arts, with photography as a minor probably wouldn't be enough.
We caught up with final year BA student, Sally Kaack in between preparing for her final folio and getting the wheels in motion for the end of year graduate year exhibition, "INLIGHT" scheduled for November! We asked Sally a few questions about her journey to date.
Since graduating from Photography Studies College in 2005 Tom’s career has spanned art, portraiture, documentary and commercial projects. 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.
