York:- A Photographic History – Assignment One – Square Mile

I have produced a photobook to present the series, and a reflections book to demonstrate my processes, technique, learning and development. Once these have been printed I will send them to my tutor.

I am aware that on WordPress with tbe content area white background, some of the highlights and whites of the images bleed into the page. In the book I use a lemon pastel background which is more effective.

Although all of the photographs are in the books, you can find them below, along with the PDF’s for both books.

  1. The outcome is fantastic Richard and I can see why this project has come out to be so beautiful – it clearly reflects your effort, dedication, sincerity and hard work. You have woven the series together wonderfully. I really appreciated reading your reflections and thought process behind the entire project. Indeed 12 photos are not enough to tell the entire story of a such a historically rich place, but I feel that it is a great start and one that has a potential to take it forward in various directions. Great work in Lightroom and thank you as always for creating all the helpful tutorials for all of us. Great effort and well done.


  2. Hi Richard

    As previous e mail, just great stuff.

    I am interested in your comment “not assessed” photograph.

    As I understand it we are not assessed in any academic sense for this FiP course … in grades or marks. Rather at the end we are given a recommendation (or not!) as to whether to proceed to the degree, which is assessed formally. This is a formative programme and all contributions will be given consideration in that sense.

    I hope I am correct and that I may be given a view about development of learning and potential at the end!!!

    Happy Friday everyone. September 1st. Autumn is officially here!
