Every picture tells a story

It's busy, busy around here…students are all working hard to complete units, staff are marking graded units and end of year exhibitions are being organised! Last weekend saw the opening of the first of these showcases; an exhibition of Higher Photography work at Scotland Street Museum. This exhibition was the culmination of a very successful collaboration between HND communication students Emma Campbell, Elisa Smyth, their tutor Mollie Tubb  and photography lecturer Eric Judlin. Emma and Elisa managed the event as part of their second year graded unit and did a fantastic job organising the venue, catering and press releases (I admit I've  pinched their press release title for this blog post - thanks girls!).  Of course, the event wouldn't have happened without the photographs taken by NQ TV Production students!  Eric and Ina with the help of some of the students completed the  mammoth task of hanging all the work - who knew it could take so long, all that velcro – I fear for the walls!! Fine art photographer Ron O'Donnell judged the competition with first prize going to Shahnila Lodhi for her  beautiful photograph of a young girl in Pakistan making bricks by hand. The TV students filmed the whole event with typical professionalism so hopefully once it's edited we will have a wee film on the blog soon! The photographs below are just a few shots I took with my little point and shoot before the exhibition opened – that calm time before all the guests arrive – before the bustle and chatter and cups of tea and cakes and speeches and clapping hands – y'know that time?

Have a look at the TV Production blog for more pics of the event and a small sample of the wonderful student photographs.
