The End of an Era

For the past three years I have been studying at the University of Cumbria on the BA(HONS) Adventure and Media course. In the past month I have completed the final pieces of work for my degree and am now awaiting my final results to then graduate in July.

The course combines outdoor activities with photography and video which initially led me to setting up this blog in September of 2010. 

I joined the course having very little knowledge of camera equipment or techniques but had a respectable amount of outdoor skills and experience that has helped me to relax when out on activities and focus on using the camera etc.

I recently purchased a new kayak to aid in this development, a Wavesport Project X 56. The plan is working and I am trying to squeeze in as much paddling as I can before I start my new job in Ambleside which should enable me to continue to live in the Lake District and paddle and practice my photography in any free time I have spare.
