“Do you know what my favourite part of the game is? The opportunity to play” – Unknown
Personally I find myself always looking for something new to do. I had found that the Universities performing arts department had settled down ready for its next big performance and there doesn’t seem to be a lot of events happening for the time being. However after a long conversation with my flat mate about multiple topics one certainly stood out. She knows that I am studying film and photography and suggested getting in contact with Will Medforth the sports and activities manager for all sports societies at Wrexham Glyndwr University. She is a member of the woman’s hockey society and always thought it would be good to have a photographer come to games and document them. This is because it is nice to see some results and remember them for the future and also to promote these societies a little more because to gain more members because even I didn’t know what was available at the University. Furthermore it is an ideal position in order to gain more experience and for people to recognise and share my work. Continue reading

Creative futures week is a week of gaining knowledge, inspiration and connections from other successful creators in order to influence and direct myself into the right creative path. From talking to lectures and others attending this week I’m still not 100% sure on what to expect. What I would like to see during this week are interactive workshops with successful photographers and or videographers and for there to be an opportunity to chat, receive feedback and potentially have more experience with them. From researching a little before this week the people I am most looking forward to seeing is Tamara Harvey from Theatre Clwyd, the creative internships and Follow Film. I would like to meet Tamara Harvey because I am aiming to do theatre photography for the future and potentially asking her the right questions might point me into the right direction. Creative internships because they too can open up a range of possibilities especially travel opportunities. And lastly Follow Film because it is a small yet very successful business from previous Glyndwr University students so that would be nice to take note on how they’ve become successful.
