Budding photographers studying in Havering have been busy snapping images for their projects.
Students on the photography course at Havering College, Ardleigh Green Road, Hornchurch, have created images for a number of different themes.
Sophie Walsh, 20, from Hornchurch, took her photographs of the area surrounding the River Rom after students were set the challenge of finding something interesting in a given area on a map.
She said: “I was given the Roneo Corner area so I chose to go under the map and explore the River Rom. I was surprised to find that it was all full of wall art and instantly fell in love with the scene.
“I found myself crawling in water to go further and see what’s there, and I found so much.”
Amy Hurley, 30, from Brentwood, has been taking photographs to the theme “Secret London”.
One of her images is of St Dunstan in the East, the ruins of a London church which was largely destroyed during the Second World War.
She said: “In all the hustle and bustle of city life it is truly a haven of tranquillity, so hidden by the ever changing city scape.”
Most recently, the students took pictures at the East London Expo, at Barking Rugby Club.
Francesca Genovese, the College’s curriculum manager in photography, said: “The students are extremely dedicated and committed to their studies.
“They have been working with confidence and professionalism and they are passionate about photography, both commercially and conceptually.
“I would certainly recommend them for any photographic challenge.”
