It feels like I haven't posted here in a while. And I haven't.

My time has been been divided up between producing online content for a couple of organisations I am involved with, starting on the design and layout for an not-for-profit legal service's Annual Report, as well as correcting assignments, writing feedback and providing online content in my role as a photography tutor. 

The latter really keeps me thinking and I always write and give as much feedback as I can when marking assignments. I had my ups and down when I undertook my photo degree but I loved the course and did very well. There was great support from lecturers and peers, so now that I have students of my own, I give them as much advice and support as I can. 

I was recently awarded certification in Training & Development and feel that this has really enhanced my skills when tutoring. There's a saying, Those who can, do; those who can't, teach.

Woody Allen took it further: Those who can't do, teach. And those who can't teach, teach gym.
I didn't say that but I never liked gym. With new insight in learning & delivery styles, evaluative practices and everything else, I'm real happy to take it from can do, can teach. I still don't like gym however.

Cruinniú Na Cásca: Off The Walls

Not so long ago, I had the pleasure of being asked to document Off the Walls, a dance celebration in the LAB Gallery, Dublin. The Gallery was hosting Theresa Nanigian’s new exhibition, Trying to Behave, which explores the past-time of a group of individuals who share an ardent passion for dance. 

In response to the large scale photographs that filled the ground floor gallery, CoisCéim Broadreach showcased a new performance by young people and older people aged 50+, alongside an invitation to the public to join in and practise a few new moves! All part of
