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

Each 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 Andreea Mihailiuc about their journey.

‘Every story has a beginning.

My story started in 2012, when I fell in love with photography. I remember how I used to ‘focalise’ all the beauties in the world with my own eyes, enjoying every second of it – at that time I told myself that this is it: this is my true passion in life.

At the end of 2013, I had my first Canon EOS 300D digital and I was over the moon about it. I’ve struggled and tried to learn as much as possible how to take professional shots but it was very difficult indeed.
