Greetings Photoion students and photography fans, it’s time for another Student of the Month interview.

Every month we choose one of our students who has shown great promise and we sit down with them to learn about how they got started with photography and how they’ve found the art so far.

The winner also gets a £50 voucher that can be redeemed against any of our courses.

This month we spoke with Lauren Rattigan about their journey.

I took the beginner’s course at Photoion photography school in 2016, having never owned a DSLR camera; and I didn’t really start taking photography seriously until September 2017. I received a message from Ion asking me if I’d been practicing as he hadn’t seen me share any images.

I hadn’t. My day job had taken over and that left no time for photography. However, I enjoy it so much I tried to think of a way that would help me to practice more consistently and make it a priority so I started my project @strongmodernvegans .
