Post Roadshow report Card - Sheffield Norton College


View from the back of the crowded room at Sheffield Norton, artfully taken by Duncan of Calumet Fame, cheers Duncan.

Sheffield Norton today, after one of those weird things that people apparently call "holidays". First one I've had this year, and very nice it was too, I recommend them to everyone, and maybe I should have had one a little earlier!
  • Student Turnout - 9/10. Maybe not the highest overall numbers, but the sheer fact that extra chairs had to be laid out impressed us immensely.
  • Number of questions asked - 8/10. As always, it's a hardcore of people, but their commitment and interest is well-noted.
  • Quality of Tea and Cakes - 3/10. Well, what can we say, we went and had lunch in the Tennis centre next door. It were lovely, mind you, but dear me, what about ginger cake, carrot cake, fairy cakes, tea, espressos? These are things that matter people!
  • Number of people who during the flash demo started to think they might have bought into the wrong system - 7/10.
  • Ability to handle the assignment - 7/10. Good attempts on a photographic level, and very good paperwork to match. A bit more attention to detail on the editorial side and you'd all be perfect.
  • Willingness to have portfolios critiqued - 8/10. Lots of very keen people for Emma to cast her skillful eye over, and in some cases some very impressive work - yes, this means you, Mr Carling Lager boy!
Off to Hallam tomorrow, with an early start (but at least that means an early finish). Extra thanks today to Emma from Vue Photographer's Agents who came along to help with both critiquing the assignment and lots of portfolios.
