Hi, my name is Elliot Clark. I completed work experience with Publicity and Web Manager Mr Luscombe at Liskeard School as I am keen to pursue a career in photography.

During the week I was involved in a number of different tasks both directly and indirectly related to photography. I was given the responsibility of looking after the school Twitter account for the week and uploading the images I took of work experience and Challenge Week. I also oversaw some web and digital marketing work.

I was tasked with editing the images taken by Mr Luscombe of the Year 11 ball so they were ready to be uploaded to the school website and optimised ready for the next Reflection magazine. We were also kindly invited to have a tour of Deltor Creative Design and Print who print the schools Reflection magazine, prospectus and other materials. Here I got to see the full printing processes images go through which really was a brilliant and interesting experience.

As well as taking photos around the school of the challenge week activities, including a dance photo-shoot for album covers, I also spent the day in Cornwall taking photos of other students on work experience. We visited students working in music stores, fisheries and conservation, computer building and an archive.

I was also tasked with taking generic shots of the school building to build a stock of photos for future use.

My work experience week has allowed me to see a different view on the career with the work and effort that goes in to it. It has also helped me to see what sort of career I would like to follow in to the future showing me how the work tasks are different to what I originally thought. Overall I have had a great work experience week where I learnt a lot of new techniques and I would like to thank Mr Luscombe for this.
