Greetings Photoion students and photography fans, it’s time for another instalment of Student of the Month. Each month we choose a student who has shown real growth and promise and we sit down with them to learn more about their journey in photography.

The winner also receives a £50 voucher to be redeemed against any of our courses.

This month we sat down with Katie Dolling.

Here’s what they had to say;

Last Christmas I received my first ever camera which was a Canon 70d with a 50mm lens. Ever since then I have become obsessed with taking as many pictures as I possibly can. Wherever I go my camera goes with me.

My passion for photography grew and grew, so much so that I decided that I wanted to set up my own little business.

So in April, we booked ourselves on to the Photoion beginners’ course. We both learnt so much and have since been practising every day and learning as we go. I am thrilled to be awarded student of the month and can’t wait to book myself on to the next class and see where this new journey will take me.
