Dom set his sights on becoming an established fashion photographer, and has made impressive steps towards it during his time at ARU. Most recently, he has worked as the University of Cambridge Eco Racing Society’s creative director, and photographed celebrities including Professor Stephen Hawking, Rag'n'bone Man, and Stormzy, as well as presidents and politicians from many different countries.

“The course has been great so far, from the photography studios to the experienced staff that are always ready to help.

“One of the highlights of my time here has been the opportunity to be a part of, and photograph, exhibitions in the Ruskin Gallery. I have had the opportunity for my work to be displayed and I have also enjoyed capturing other artists work end special moments during private views.

“Being part of a photo series named Contemporary Cambridge has been a real highlight for me. It was a great opportunity to engage with industry, staff and fellow students.

"Studying in Cambridge has been the best experience of my life so far. Besides meeting wonderful people both inside and outside of the University, this city is an infinite resource of contacts and opportunities.”
