Event photography is something I am completely new to, so I was very chuffed and somewhat surprised when my friend Amy contacted me about photographing an event she was organising as part of her Graded Unit. The Scottish Student Journalism Awards is a very respected event where students from all over Scotland come and receive awards for their very best work. Well known journalists and editors were there to present these awards, and I was lucky enough to grab some experience and photograph the event.

It is obvious I need a lot more practice with this kind of photography, particularly with using flash. But for my first attempt I am very chuffed with the results. I would also like to thank my friends Paul Reich and Peter Stevenson who helped me with the planning stages of this project and even taking a few photos which are fantastic. 

You can find the Scottish Student Journalism Awards on Facebook

Well done to the amazing team that made the night a huge success with their amazing organisation skills. A final well done to the winners of each award, in particular Cat Cohrane who won that all important Student Journalist of the year Award 2015.
