My name is Ghada Ahmed, Student number: 491014. I am from the United Arab Emirates, from a city called Sharjah. I have had a real interest in photography when I was about 18 years old. I used to take photos using film cameras and used to participate in small exhibitions and workshops in my home town. I switched to digital in my 30s and taught myself photo editing using photoshop through books and online videos.
I am an old student at the OCA. I have done the old courses of level one (The Art of Photography) and (Digital Photographic Practice) before blogs were compulsory and passed my assessments. I then did the (People and Place) course and had to stop after assignment two. Since that course is not available anymore; I enrolled in (Identity and Place) course and I am hoping to continue to pursue the OCA BA(hons) degree in photography.
