Budding photographer goes back to his roots

A university undergraduate with an eye for a picture enjoyed his time at college so much he can’t keep away.

Tom Porter has been back to South Cheshire College twice in recent months to learn more from college lecturers and help students fine-tune their photography skills.

The 20-year-old is in his final year at Falmouth University doing a degree in press and editorial photography.

During his holidays he has linked up again with the college where he gained three distinction grades on a photography BTec national diploma that he completed in 2010.

He spent a week’s work experience shadowing photography lecturers to find out more about teaching the subject and then spent another week at the college helping students with course projects.

Tom, from Crewe, said: “I have a real passion for photography and I’m loving university life but I had a great time at college too which is why I offered to come back to help students and do some work experience.”

He added: “I definitely want to work in photography as a career and teaching photography appeals to me because the lecturers at college have all been great with me.”
