Photography Student of the Month – June 2014 – Rachel Ennis

It’s time for another edition of Student of The Month. Each month we pick a student who we feel has outdone themselves and really shown their love of the art of photography. The Student of the Month also receives a £50 gift voucher that can be redeemed against any of our courses.
