I really appreciate how much PhotoSoc has helped me pursue my love of photography and I feel that taking photos gives me an outlet to express my imagination and additionally it helps me take a break from my studies – it always leaves me in a better mood. I hope that I can encourage others to take up photography so that they too can relieve any stress and explore their creativity. This year, I have been a medics4medics peer navigator, so I have learnt about the ways students can seek support and believe that, especially with the pandemic, our mental health is more important than ever. As welfare officer, I would be a friendly face for anyone to talk to. I would try to introduce projects involving increasing awareness of mental health issues, for example eating disorders, perhaps by organising shoots involving people who are willing to speak up about their problems – the photographs may in fact increase their confidence in themselves and will also draw attention to some serious issues that everyone must be made aware of.

Having been the VP and welfare officer last year, I have had the wonderful opportunity of working with hard working and talented people. I planned and hosted the first group project of Photo Society, with the aim to create long lasting friendship within the society despite the pandemic. I hope to expand upon this next year, I would like to plan more events such as photography discussions and group projects that will help foster a Photosoc community. With hopes the pandemic will be over next year, I aim to host photowalks and picnics in country parks around London. I would also like to host larger social events by integrating our exhibitions with formal socials such as winter balls. I am also aware of the lack of film photography events despite the large population of film photographers, I aim to push for more film events with our film officer.
I have also helped create a social media presence, shifting our events from Facebook to Instagram. I hope to continue this next year by creating beautiful graphics and improving branding consistency. With skills I have picked up from being the Design Officer of another society, I am confident I can improve communication through social media.
I also hope to help our members gain new photography skills; I would like to push for more external workshops from professionals and run event photography workshops for those on our events team. Furthermore, I would also like to run community led workshops so our members can transfer skills.
