Our inspiring feature for the weekend is Mathew Molloy, our Advanced Diploma student in Stage 3. Mathew’s work largely revolves around themes related to liberation from anxiety and freedom. He is a fine art and fashion photographer who develops images that speak about ‘the power and beauty of emotion that exists throughout our being.’
Here is a little Q/A with Mathew:
Describe your first impression of PSC:
I was so blown away by the students’ work hanging on the walls on that first Open Day.
What do you like most about PSC?
I would have to say that it put me in an environment where I was surrounded by like minded people, all heading towards the same goal.
What is your favourite class and why?
Studio. I love working in the studio where I am free to manipulate the light towards the outcome I am after.
How different is your photography and conceptual skill now, compared to the first week of the course?
My photography is now at a stage where I have the confidence to shoot anything for any client.
What’s your dream job? Where do you hope to be ten years from now?
I am fortunate enough to have some good clients at the moment, but I would love to gain some more international clients. I hope to have a great international clientele allowing me to work all over the world.
What advice would you give to future students?
Be brave in the concepts that you are going to produce. You will not standout from the crowd if you are going to base your work on concepts or styles that have been done time and again. Work hard to find and refine your own photography style, that way you will be much more comfortable with the work you produce.
