As many of you will know I submitted my Final Major Project (FMP), Critical Review of Practice and this Critical Research Journal for assessment in early December for an MA (Photography) at Falmouth University. It was a long wait over Christmas for the results and then our provisional marks were released on 8 January while I was on holiday in Tenerife. Although I could see all the comments on WhatsApp from my colleagues in the Cromarty cohort, sharing their results, I was not able to access my results until we returned to the hotel after a long day’s walking! Although, on the basis of the marks for the individual pieces of work for FMP, and my overall average for the previous course modules, I was pretty sure I had done enough to get a distinction grade, I did not want to publish anything here until the final Examination Board had confirmed this fact and I had received my formal results. This did not happen until 27 January!
I would like to thank all my tutors for their guidance and support during the course, my colleagues in the Cromarty cohort who were there for me when things got tough and my long-suffering husband Bob for helping me reflect on my reading, writing and image-making!
My name is Alison Price and for the past ten years I have travelled the world photographing wildlife, including Alaska, Antarctica, Borneo, Botswana, the Canadian Arctic, Kenya, Rwanda, South Africa, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
