My name is Will Kneeshaw, I have just enrolled at Leeds college of art. I am currently studying a BA(Hons) degree in Photography. One of our first tasks was to setup this blog with the aim to record our progress during my three years as well as talk about my past experiences within photography and interests that I have developed through studying the subject.
My father showed an interest in the subject when I was growing up but never took it as far as buying a camera until a cheap point and shoot camera came with a bundle when purchasing a printer, we began taking photos and from then on the interest grew to the point where we shared a pass time. As I began secondary school the option to take photography became available giving me the perfect chance to develop my skills and become obsessed with the subject
Prior to studying and Leeds college of art I completed two years studying A levels one of them being photography. My interests grew during this period to the point where I wanted to make a living from photography. At the moment all I know is that a career in photography is what I desire, however my current aim is to keep an open mind to any form of photography practice and during these three years I would like to sample all areas of the subject, this way I will get the most out of the years I spend studying here and help me to judge where I want to take the skills I will acquire during my study.
