Tim, mid 30’s. same job for 15 years, approached me in 2010 wanting help and advice in applying for a photography degree course. Tim didn’t have a camera and needed to create a portfolio for his applications. I lent him my camera and 2 half day sessions later Tim sent off his portfolio to 5 universities. He was offered interviews at all 5. This is what he said:        

“Hello Will, I have been accepted onto the course I was aiming for: BA (hons) Photography in Cardiff. Thank you very much for your advice and help – I’m sure I wouldn’t be going if it weren’t for your help.” Tim Jenkins.
