My name is Katie Laura Johnston. I’m a photographer in my 3rd year at the University of Cumbria, living and studying in Carlisle, UK. This blog is for my professional development module where I have documented all of the progress and processes I’ve been going through to transform myself from a student to working professional.
My ultimate career goal is to become a commercial and editorial fashion photographer, but I understand that to do that takes a considerable amount of effort, time and dedication. This blog shows the beginning of my career in this field and displays some of the new and diverse skills I’ve learnt from Adobe Photoshop to networking. It also outlines some of the practices I have gone through to prepare for our degree show, Iris, and life after University.
