A lot has changed since the last time I wrote a post here. We are now living in the UK, and I have started my Master of Art in Photography. The move was an adventure that anyone who has ever moved more than a few hours drive away much less overseas, can understand. We have settled in nicely so I won’t go into too much about that. The new adventure I have started is what I want to talk about, the MA in Photography.
Getting a Master’s Degree has been something I have been thinking about for quite some time. I hadn’t given it much thought until an email came from the Royal Photographic Society (RPS). It said the Falmouth University has an MA Photography program and if I was interested, as an RPS member I would receive a discount if I took the course. I think the universe and photography were giving me a gentle nudge, letting me know that maybe it was time to get a Master’s Degree. Well, without going into a lot of details about applying, I’ll just say that I got in and the course started Monday, 4 June.
One of the requirements of the course is to post regularly to a blog as part of a Critical Research Journal (CRJ). Over the next two years, you will see posts about my MA work and some of my thinking behind it. If you have ever wondered what it would be like going back to school parttime, you will get a glimpse here. I’m looking forward to the next two years, and I hope you will join me on this new adventure so let’s jump right in!
