Today we’ve got something very special for you; our Student of the Year 2019.
Last year we began a new tradition that built on our Student of the Month competition and recognised one student who we felt stood out against all other across the entire year. The student of the year also wins a £100 voucher to use on any of our courses.
We based our decision on who would be student of the year on a few different criteria:
- Hard Work;
- Their Loyalty to the Photoion school;
- Dedication, passion and consistency.
This year’s winner is David Lange, who previously won our Student of the Month position in July 2019.
We caught up with David to speak to him about winning Student of the Year.
I sometimes feel that finding the Photoion studio was a little like divine intervention, it was meant to be.
Photography has always been a passion of mine, especially in recent years. However, I’ve always known that I could get more out of my camera, if only I knew how.
Now, thanks to what I’ve learnt from the amazing lessons from Ion, and the continued support and friendship with him and Tatiana, I feel so much more comfortable and proficient when handling my cameras – and hopefully, the quality of the pictures has also improved.
I know that I still have a long way to go with my photographic development, but I’m sure with the continued support and instruction from Ion I can only get better – here’s hoping.
Photoion and its alumni give the perception of a family of like-minded people. Somewhere I can feel comfortable (at last); a home from home so to speak, with lively, amusing and informative lessons, and a really nice group of individuals with which to associate.
And to cap it all, there is the online sharing of pictures; I love to see other students efforts, (I also feel envy, inspiration, aspiration), as well as soaking up the comments from others about my own photos (the good and the not so good – it’s all constructive).
It all helps to encourage one another and to feel part of the Photoion family. So, thank you, Ion and Tatiana, for being such great friends; and I look forward to developing our relationship in the future.
