I’m currently working on a graphic design degree, and photography is a part of that degree so I figured, what better way to learn than to go to a foreign country? Here at Pleth, I’ve been interested in pushing photography for some clients and I’m not bad at it, but I still have a lot to learn. This class was a means to not only finish part of my degree, but to grow the skills that we can use here.
