On to the new, last post on this blog

by Suzy Walker-Toye

It’s assessment time for the OCA modules so there will be no more updates to this blog. I will now be exclusively continuing my OCA studies on a new blog for module two: Digital Film Production: Creative Concepts.

Thank you to all the students and tutors who helped me with this module and to those of you following this blog, you may wish to follow the newer one, or my personal blog over at

I hope to be writing up a review of Saturdays study visit to this years Prix Pictet exhibition and to my visit to this years Deutsche Börse Photography Prize in the next few days on my video course blog.

Not Slacking Off…. But Not Doing Course Work

by Suzy Walker-Toye

I know it must seem like I’m slacking off because I haven’t posted to this blog for a while, but I’m not. Honest. My personal blog has been humming with new photographs. In fact since I last posted here I’ve made over 30 posts on there. I’ve been thinking about starting the next chapter (colour) which is quite a difficult one however in my assignment two feedback my tutor told me not to focus so much on underwater photography (because level one is all about being varied). The problem with that advice is, although while perhaps good advice for passing the course its not good advice for me because underwater photography is where I find my passion, my interest and my inspiration for all other photography. So the course fell slightly flat and I put it on the back burner while I went off to do a personal project in Raja Ampat, Indonesia (where, I might add, I would have been able to finish the colour chapter had I not been asked not to use underwater images in assignments)!

Anyway here are some images from that Project so you can see what I’ve been up to, there are many more on the blog posts from my personal blog….

That project has also inspired me to use lighter gear (because I had to borrow someones camera) and I’m selling all my nikon stuff here. In the mean time I have been taking some colours photos for the exercises on my iPhone which I shall write up in due course.
