Alice Kennedy

Media & Communication

Personal statement

My name is Alice Kennedy, I am currently studying Media and Communications at Birmingham City University I am hoping to become a professional photographer. I will be graduating summer of 2019 with a predicted 2:1.

I studied photography for 2 years before attending BCU and I am continuing this throughout my course. I specialise in portrait/ wedding photography but also enjoy studio and landscape photography. I like to capture the emotion behind the photograph, promoting feelings and a connection with the subject.

Photography has always been a passion of mine, I believe I am creative, artistic and appreciate other photographer's work, to influence my own and learn from them. I want to share my love for photography with prospective clients, and my intention to create images showing emotion and meaning rather than just a pretty picture.

I have recently completed work experience in the industry. I worked for one week in an Art Gallery called De Montfort Fine Art. Here I worked behind the scenes capturing images of artwork to then be edited, embellished and printed to be sold as prints of the original art work.

I then worked for the rest of the summer with a Events Photographer from Arc Studios in Lichfield. Mainly doing events such as weddings, christenings, parties and corporate events. I chose to work with this photographer because this is the field of photography I am interested in pursuing in the future.

I have also gained skills and interests in other subject fields throughout my time at BCU. I have enjoyed events management and marketing and now have a part-time job at a recruitment agency, developing their social media marketing/management for them while I finish my degree. The experience I have gained on my course gave me the confidence to apply for this job role and show what I have learnt, I have found out that I enjoy this area of marketing.

After finishing my degree I hope to continue with my events photography alongside studio photography, together with my own personal projects.

Please take a moment to look at my portfolio and see my wide range of photographs and styles. I hope you enjoy my photographs as much as I enjoyed creating them.
I have tagged my website and Instagram to show my photography work and LinkedIn for my social media marketing work.
