NTU Photography students exhibit work to the public and industry at graduate exhibition, Free Range.

There's been a great buzz during the show, especially on the private view where we got to meet people from industry.

A selection of our final-year BA (Hons) Photography students showcased their work as part of Free Range , an internationally-recognised event for graduating artists and designers.

Following the course's Nottingham photography festival, which sees all final-year students take part in the development and organisation of a publicly-facing photography festival across Nottingham, 42 students were selected to exhibit their work at Free Range.

Exhibiting student, Ed Piper, who has secured an internship with London-based production company RM Production after graduating in July, said: "There's been a great buzz during the show, especially on the private view where we got to meet people from industry.

"We also got the chance to meet a host of former NTU photography students who are now established photographers, which was part of an afternoon of talks organised by our tutors. To hear from such a wide range of successful professionals was really inspiring."

Fellow exhibiting student, James Stoddart said: "It's been a great experience to exhibit at Free Range; from the challenge of curating my work in a new space alongside other artists, to being part of an exhibition which is so well recognised."

Speaking about his time at NTU, James added: "I've learnt so much during my time at NTU. Aside from this exhibition, another highlight for me has to be spending four months at Film and TV School of the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague (FAMU) as part of my studies. The experience of studying abroad helped me to find new contacts, broaden my range of skills and knowledge, and allowed me to get an international perspective on photography and film making."
