My name is Michelle Yates and currently I am a BA Hons Media Production student studying at the University of Lincoln in the United Kingdom where for the past year I have taken to specialise in Photography as well as Muilti-Camera in my second year. Now in my final year I am continuing to study the medium of Photography as my chosen specialism and exploring a variety of themes linking them with Landscape.
My interest within Photography started in May 2009 when I received my first digital camera and started to explore what I liked to compose and frame, which lead to me gaining an interest within Nature, Wildlife, Landscape, Architecture and Still Life Photography.
This interest within Photography also started before going onto studying Media Production at college and university level as at this time I was studying the arts in Performing Arts. I think this has a direct link to the way I compose and frame subjects from being directed myself where to come on and off stage for the audience to gain the correct perspective of what is taking place. Then applied this direction to the way I compose and frame subjects for photography.
Since gaining my first DSLR camera at Christmas last year I have started to explore creating my own self directed projects within Wildlife and Still Life Photography. This as well as produce my university degree related work where I have made the decision I will continue learning the medium on my third year and would like to in the future to study at Post Graduate level.
