The importance of the photograph is not realised at the moment of the shutter closing but in the longevity of the image. (Nik Andrews)Hello, my name is Nik Andrews. I am a professional photographer from Wolverhampton I currently hold a Level 3 City & Guilds photography qualification but have decided to go back to college to attain an HND and, hopefully, then a degree in photography. I am hoping that this site will build over the next two or three years to hold the body of my work towards the course. As time progresses I will add course material, project work and even just my thoughts and ideas. Photography to me is an amazing art form as it can create amazing images that are surreal but also is an amazing tool to document history. There are now billions of images taken around the world every year. Never before has a generation been so photographed. How I see this site working – Photography & Graphics projects will be on subpages under their respective headings on the main menu. My journal will be individual web pages and my sketchbook, thoughts and ideas will be via the Niks Blog link on the menu bar above. My Facebook page My web page
Graduation and beyone
Friday 3rd August 2018
After two years of work and study I passed my course with a distinction. In fact I was the only one on the course who was guaranteed a distinction before the final project had even been marked. Not bad for a guy who left school with one GCSE in motor vehicle studies.
I initially applied to Wolverhampton University to complete the third year to make my HND in to a degree in photography, however, they rejected me only offering me inception on to year two ( which I had just completed at college), but I am now enrolled at Stafford University and start September 2018.
Today I had the following letter arrive at my home so it does make me wonder even more why Wolverhampton Uni passed me over for other students on my course with lower grades and aptitudes when it comes to their studies.
