Work Experience for Year 10 at Foxhills Technology College

Oxfam 1 week

For my work experience I decided to go and help out at my local Oxfam charity shop. I had to go have an interview first with the manager Linda, was talked about the job and what skills I would need to accomplish it. I couldn’t work on the till because that needed a weeks training, but I could help upstairs sorting out all the donations. I did that for a week, Linda was really happy about the help. I used a tag gun to put labels on the clothes and price them ready for the shop floor. I also sorted out the clothes and bric-a-brac on the shop floor so they would look neat for the customers to see. I really enjoyed this job, my work colleagues were all friendly and we could chat while we worked. I used my time management skills to make sure I got everything done in time each day. I used my communication skills to help customers find items they were looking for. I worked the hardest I could to help the shop get through the large amount of donations, I helped to clear the entire top room. At the end of my work experience week Linda rang me to say I worked extremely well and if I ever wanted to volunteer there she would have me back anytime.

Professional Experience for Second Year of Photography Degree

I held an exhibition with two other photography students for my professional experience. We had to find a gallery to exhibit in, get our photographs printed and framed ourselves and advertise our exhibition ourselves. I feel I communicated well in the group, we made decisions together, but I still voiced my opinions when necessary. I had good time management, I always showed up to meetings on time, and got all my photographs hung ready for the opening. I gained new people skills from talking to the people who came to view my work and I am now more confident in myself to talk to people.

Professional Experience Assisting Paul Smith

Myself and another photography student Pete volunteered to assist our lecturer Paul Smith on a shoot at the Derby Rolls Royce staff training centre/engine museum. We had to be ready to help pack his equipment into the mini bus at 8.45 to set off at 9. Paul was going to photograph composite images of aeroplane engines using several different pictures with varying exposures in HD to create one image. He did this by taking an underexposed image an overexposed image and an image that was perfectly exposed, so he could later put them together on Phocus (the image editing software by Hassleblad). I gained experience by helping set up the portable studio lights wherever Paul wanted them and moving all the equipment from one engine to another. I also set up reflectors and the tripod for his camera. Me and Pete also had to solve problems together, one example is that we had to decide how to cover the writing behind one of the engines, we used tape and reflectors.

Interest and hobbies: 
I have always been interested in photography, since I first picked up a disposable camera. So I am passionate about the medium and always look for new ways to improve my knowledge of techniques and past photographers. I have used film cameras, developing the film myself, and I have used digital cameras. I have also used a medium format camera so am familiar with many types of photography. I love working in the darkroom developing prints and I enjoy working on Photoshop with digital pictures.

I am also very interested in cooking especially baking, I enjoy creating something new from a few ingredients and I like coming up with my own recipes. One of my passions is baking cakes, I like trying out new ideas and decorating them using many techniques that I enjoy learning. I like finding out new ways to make things and learning new skills.

How Professional Experience could improve my Cv

When I write a Cv now I have done Professional experience I will have something to show I can organise things, I can work in a group situation, I have good time management and that I can communicate with clients and people. It will make my Cv look more professional.

I have never had a job. so im always worried my Cv would be very plain, but as a photographer im going to now try to find little jobs to enhance my prospects. I only have work experience and various after school clubs to go n mine at the moment. I’m glad my professional experience was so successful.

Link To my Portfolio

As a photography student a formal Cv wouldn’t really show off my skills, so I decided to create a Portfolio blog to showcase some of best work. Here is the link…

Portfolio

SWOT Analysis

Strengths

I can work hard, on my own without need for motivation.

I can come up with strong ideas for projects, and I can show these in my images.

I have many skills in photographic practises, darkroom and photo-shop related.

I really enjoy Photography, it is something I could do everyday.

I can produce images to have meanings and they show this meaning to viewers.

A wide range of areas of photography I wouldn’t mind getting into.

Weaknesses

I find it hard to communicate with people, I am shy.

I get nervous meeting new people.

Not knowing which main area of photography or job I want to be in when I leave Uni may dampen my experiences.

Deadlines sometimes catch me out, and I end up rushing to finish a project in time.

Any disagreements I have I tend to bottle up and keep to myself.

Opportunities

Be able to showcase my work and get opinions on how to improve.

Become more confident.

See how a gallery show is put together and how they work.

Be able to put myself forward and not be scared to get things wrong or what people will think.

Putting my work online will not only get new viewers looking at my work, but might generate interest and maybe I will gain help, admirers or commissions from many people.

This can lead to getting connections with influential people in the photography business.

Threats

I have a lack of money and resources.

Many people trying to get the same opportunities and experiences.

Travel may reduce the amount of opportunities I can take due to price or distance.

Working with other people in the gallery may take some attention away from my own work.
