    • As a result of my years working as a travel photographer, I was increasingly asked to write alongside my images. I didn't feel I had enough knowledge or critical thinking skills to really call myself a writer so I decided to embark on a master's degree. I wanted to have a knowledge base from which to draw a standpoint and opinion which would inform both my photography and writing. In the era of climate change, an academic grounding in environmental matters is applicable to all industries and it is invaluable to my work as a a designer, too. My thesis topic is about responsible photography and image use in the UK travel press.
