Fighting for a shot at the Foo


Sandra Davis, PSC photojournalism student, was one of the lucky few to get a media pass for the Foo Fighters concert last week.  Sandra describes the night:  “I got to shoot in the media pit with Rolling Stones Magazine, The Age, Herald Sun, Triple M and Noises11. All together there was 15 photographers in the pit jostling for shots! We only had 3 songs to shoot in – then we were escorted back out of the pit. Lucky me – the oldest (and newest graduate photographer) in the pit!”

PSC Graduate Lenny Seberry talks about his new documentry

Lenny graduated PSC  in 2007 and specialised in Photojournalim. He was born in Dublin but has been living in Australia for almost 10 years  and has been working as a freelance photographer for 7 years.

Here Lenny tells us how his passion for photography and story telling led to his new project  ‘One Shot, The Story of MC Wheels’.

Having been a motor mechanic back in Ireland and then traveling around the world and supporting myself working in the hospitality industry I felt I wasn’t achieving anything with my life and wanted to do something different.

I had an interest in photography for years but never had the guts to do anything about it. It wasn’t until my first image appeared in the developing tray I was hooked. I knew then what I wanted to do with my life.    

I enrolled in the full-time course at PSC in February 2005 and after 3years I graduated with an Advanced Diploma of Photography. During my time at PSC we took part in the PIC (Photography in the Community) Project and that really opened my eyes to people less fortunate than myself. It gave me the confidence to be able to approach people and not be afraid to find out their stories, as everyone has a story to tell. My times at PSC were probably the most rewarding 3 years of my life.
