I am a keen sports enthusiast which led me to focus on sports photography throughout the course and I would like to continue this work post-graduation. I regularly photograph rugby, football, water sports and American football for teams both inside and outside of UCLan. Representation of female athletes/women’s sport has been a main theme for me influencing both my dissertation and my previous work. However, my most recent project, ‘Hang In There’, uses the sport of climbing to show how athletes are getting through lockdown and explores the repercussions that it has had on them.
