Why We Want To See your existing Work…?
The judgement we’re making is two-fold:
The main one is that you’re indeed an intermediate + photographer as this course would be too advanced for individuals just coming to grips with photography.
An indication of your style along with your use of/lack of continuity story telling techniques - which will help us greatly in tailoring the course to your specific requirements.
What happens next?
The successful applicants will be notified by 28th February 2019. Your images used for your application will be displayed in your very own gallery on the Soul Capture Creatives Website and across social media.
