Martika Shakoor, PSC Advanced Diploma student, talks about her experience with the PSC/Amnesty International Australia Photographers Network. She is a second-generation Afghan who is specialising in photojournalism and documentary photography. Along with her keen interest in human rights, she was an ideal candidate to be trained by Amnesty International as a volunteer photographer, given photographic briefs and accompany active campaigners to document events. Continuing this year, this initiative aims to provide PSC students with new opportunities to gain experience as working photographers and extend their network.

This month Photography Studies College is abuzz with many students and graduates posting about their recent accolades from Capture Magazine's Australia's Top Emerging Photographers list. In the Student Category one of our first year's won the top award (and her image graced the cover), and two more students were listed in the Top 10. A PSC graduate made the top 20 in the Portraits Category, and a PSC tutor who is also a past graduate took out 9th place in the Art Category. And many others have been Highly Commended in various categories of photography. We talk to a few of these rising stars about their award-winning work – and along the way discover why PSC students have an edge of others.

Today we are sitting down with second year Bachelor of Photography student Alex Mclaren to hear about his experience of the Obscura Festival of Photography and what he learned from such a unique festival.
For many of our second year Bachelor of Photography students who went to the Obscura Festival of Photography this year, they hadn't been to Malaysia before, however one of our international students Antoine Loncle was born in Penang and was living there before he moved to Melbourne to undertake his studies at PSC. We sat down with Antoine to chat about his experience at Obscura and his perspective on his town.
