My photography had lost its purpose and direction. I needed a new challenge and luckily I found the OCA and their excellent courses. Studying for a degree with them has opened my mind to areas of art and photography previously hidden from me by lack of direction and motivation. The support and help from the excellent tutors is the key to me moving forward, their contribution always inspirational and well directed. Although we study alone the online resources of the OCA tie us together wherever in the world we choose to be.
