Paul's BAPSCI BlogBlog posts required for year 3 of my BA(Hons) qualification.
As the course finally comes to an end I thought I’d try a recap post about this academic year.
Another of the large written pieces is now completed and ready to be submitted.
Now that this course is coming to aa close, it’s time for me to start expanding my portfolio(s).
Finally! The piece of work I’ve, perhaps, enjoyed the least is complete. Am I happy with it? Hmmm…
I didn’t think companies still operated like this.
Finally got motivated to do a bit more to the dissertation.
The May Bank Holiday GI Weekender has been cancelled! That sucks!
Finally got around to finishing my website the way I wanted it.
Time for a course progress round-up now that we’re into the final sprint to the finish line of assignments.
Got another bit of feedback for the Business Plan module.
Had a group meeting to discuss progress we’ve made with the final project so far.
Got some speedy feedback and grade from the Work-based Project Viva 2 and I’m very happy.
Decided to dedicate a week to the business plan assignment and managed to get a bit done.
Submitted another couple of assignments, including one I’ve been panicking about.
A second studio shoot has been done as I practice that discipline for my Work Based Project.
Got back out with the camera to Skirmish Lutterworth in an attempt to get more shots for the final project. All didn’t go well.
Another piece of physical marketing material designed and ordered.
Time to start putting some effort into getting the Vision41 business plan going. That means communicating with people.
Had the first studio session to get work produced for the final project of this course. It didn’t go as planned…
I got in touch with the main man at Gunman Airsoft about me photographing at a couple of ‘weekenders’ in 2022.
Still doing two things for my final project but one has now changed.
Finally got my arse into gear and booked a session at a studio.
The first guest speaker I’ve seen this year on the course and he was great.
Finally come to that time of the year where I’m back to pick up the course from 2021.
Time to add to the services I offer as an airsoft photographer if I’m to make it work for this year’s course and beyond.
Finally got something written down for the start of the dissertation, which is some positive progress.
After putting off doing any work for a couple of months, I’ve now had a 1-2-1 with Kim and things are starting to look a bit better with regard the dissertation.
Another step in my business plan is to start creating stock images.
I’ve been shooting airsoft for a little time now without getting paid upfront. Instead, I rely on getting players to come to my website and buy after the event. How’s this been going?
I wasn’t completely idle during my time away from this course. One of the things I managed was my first prepaid airsoft photography job.
A job I did for a client just before coming back onto this course has taught me a few things I can use going forward as a photographer.
A potential collaboration with one of my peers on this year’s course has come about through chatting on Messenger.
Time to start asking around for advice in the hope that someone out there is willing to help a newbie photographer instead of putting the shutters up. This time it was the Leicester Mercury.
First of an intended regular post feature where I discuss where I’m at with regards to the course and what I have achieved, am trying to achieve, and hope to get out of it.
Missed an appointment for the first time ever. Oops, time to sort my **** out!
Another step along the road to getting my name out there as an airsoft photographer has been taken in the form of a prize win. My project proposal and work-based project for this final year of my degree is about me attempting to get myself established as one of the...
Well, that's a turn up for the books. Whilst in one of the Creative and Critical Enquiry sessions yesterday being run by Stuart and Kim, I received a phone call which I ignored considering where I was at the time. Immediately following that phone call I also received...
Well, here I am again, back on the final year of my BA(Hons) course within the creative industry. After having to stop this final year of my degree due to the incredibly annoying COVID-19 and the pressures it was putting on everyone, it's time to get back on with it...
