SUSANNAH ALLTIMES, 19
Susannah from Lewisham loves portrait, still life and nature photography.
In 2014, she took the hard decision to drop out of her photography degree at Ravensbourne College because she was worried about fees, debt and if the course was giving her real practical hands on skills.
Susannah spotted YOUYOU Mentoring in a magazine offering mentorship. She sent through her details and portfolio. Susannah's portfolio shone out and within a few days she was offered a beneficiary place on the the Double Exposure Portraits Project. and was teamed with award-winning photographer Adam Lawrence.
During her mentorship, Susannah took part in 1-2-1 sessions with her mentor at the famous Holborn Studios, to gain skills in setting up lighting and confidence in directing subjects.
Susannah assisted Adam on shoots photographing Professor Green and confidently directed and photographed Games of Thrones, Maisie Williams, musician Miles Kane and fashion legend Dame Vivienne Westwood for the Double Exposure Portraits.
Susannah and her fellow beneficiaries celebrated their first major exhibition Double Exposure Portraits at Zebra One Gallery in Hampstead.
With exposure from YOUYOU Mentoring, Susannah went on to win the 'One To Watch' in Professional Photography Magazine.
Susannah is working on her first solo project and exhibition.
