Photography Focus On... A little glimpse at some of Nottingham Trent University’s photography talent.

Hollie Buxton “I’m a third year student and am specialising in fashion photography. I love working with different models, stylists and makeup artists to create fashion images that entice the viewer, making them want to buy the clothing as well as wanting to view the photographs. More of my work can be seen at”

Jenny Wickens I’m a second year who interests lie with re-presenting the everyday, either in a very surreal way or though a different perspective.

Liv Williams I am a First Year Graphic Design student at NTU. Photography is something I mainly do for fun but do I try to fit it into my coursework where possible. I mainly focus on architecture and the urban environment but I am particularly interested in how nature and people affect the city. This is just a small selection from previous shoots but for more photography see:

Hayley Green I am a second year Photography student at NTU primarily working in analogue and alternative processes. I enjoy creating portraits but have a varied body of work including conceptual and fashion still and moving imagery. I love utilising photography to create tactile (or even multisensory) outcomes which engage the audience using a combination of methods. In the future I would like to work in art direction or print design. For more of my work take a look

A Vintage Wonderland Photography By Hollie Buxton, Assistants - Laura Seaman and Charlotte Hickmott As students, many of us struggle with tight budgets and ever-dwindling funds. Throw in the want to spend most of your money on new outfits in order to keep up to date with the latest trends and you may think you’ve found yourself in a real dilemma. If you’re someone who thinks you can only shop the latest trends in high street shops such as Topshop, Miss Selfridge and H&M then that may be where you’re going wrong. Vintage clothing is a trend that been growing in popularity over the past few years, and Nottingham has a wide variety of vintage stores on offer. There are small shops such as Wilder and COW, right through to the ever-expanding Vintage Warehouse. It is no surprise that there is a huge popularity with vintage clothing among people in Nottingham, and in particular among us students. If you were to stand outside the Bonnington building on Nottingham Trent’s city campus for as little as 15 minutes, you’re almost certain to see a number of students wearing some form of vintage clothing and each styling it in their own unique and individual way. And it is because of the great range of vintage shops within Nottingham that we are able to add our own take on the latest trends.

The Vintage Warehouse is one destination that every lover of vintage clothing should visit. Located in Nottingham’s city centre, it is overloaded with everything from skirts and shirts, to bags and shoes- for both boys and girls. The Vintage Warehouse is filled with everything you could want to create a head to toe vintage look, or if you’re just looking to add a little something small to complete a high street outfit. The Vintage Warehouse is a haven for anyone that has become a slave to the vintage trend, and with garments selling for as low as £5.00 you’ll no longer have to suppress that want to spend your student loan on updating your wardrobe.
