For Callum, Bishop Burton College has been the perfect environment to develop the skills and independence needed to pursue his dream career of working as a professional photographer.
During his two-year design course, Callum has covered a range of disciplines – and made a lot of friends along the way.
He said: “I have learned a mixture of different design techniques, including prop design, interior design, photography and others.
“I’m now planning to go on to do a degree in photography as I would like to be a professional photographer. I like portrait photography and capturing people in their natural environment.
“Over the last two years I’ve built up a really good set of friends, a better understanding of design and also more independence with whatever work I am doing.”
