My contract with the University of Wales, Newport ended this week.
This is very sad for me i LOVED my job there. the fact that i got to do two thing i love there. geeky photography things and helping people!
the University’s facilities where fantastic, i didn’t always agree with the lectors teaching methods but that is just my opinion But wot made up for it was the technicians who are brilliant.
Denis: King of the dark rooms, has been working there for 23 years or something, when he says something you listen! he has so much experience!
Ian: he is a good guy at heart who knows sooo much about computer systems so it is fantastic when you need to know about file formats or anything with digital photography.
Gawain: such a nice laid back guy, and when it comes to high end scanning on the hasselblad’s flex scanners or giclée printing he is the guy you want to speak to.
I’ve learnt a lot from these guys and respect them for their technical knowledge as well as their working practise as photographers.
as well as my job im going to miss the perks of the jobs like the Digital hasselblad camera and the 3 studios one of them is above and i loved the ProPhoto rail system.
you never know in the future i might be able to get another job there.
