Hi everyone!

As part of my photography course, I have to track my development on a blog. The posts from September 2011 until January 2012 are part of a module called Project Management, for which I was required to work in a group of eight students to create an exhibition. The blog followed every step we took in order to create a successful gallery. The blog posts starting from September 2012 follow my final year on the course. I'll be documenting my research and analysis of my final year projects, as well as include notes of my Professional Practice unit - which prepares us for a range of post graduate options. Finally it also looks at a project called New Creatives, where I'll be working alongside an artists to help college students get more involved with art.

Our website has now officially launched! There are still a few things that aren't quite working yet but we will be fixing that in the next couple of days. We have already got 180 views since it has been launched so it is already started to get popular. 

When you first open the website, you will see the logo and you will have to click on the leaf, this brings you to the home page. There is a little introduction of the event on there as well as a link to twitter so that you can immediately see what has been happening on twitter. There is a menu to the side of the page which consists of the exhibiting, the photographers, contact us, sponsors, fundraising and partners. The exhibition page displays a photo of our venue, Ultraviolet, and also displays the location on a map. It includes the opening times and explains who will be giving out teas and cakes on the opening day. The photographers page shows a list of all the photographers who are in our group and when you click on a name it takes you to a short bio, a gallery and contact details for that specific person. Contact us contains all of our emails as well as the arteaphotography email: contactus@arteaphotography.net. When you click on sponsors it shows a list of all the people that have helped us out so far and who are willing to give us a discount. Under fundraising it shows all of our fundraising ideas and explains when and where we will be fundraising. Lastly, the partners page has links to other groups in our year who are also having exhibitions. 

The website will be constantly updated, just like twitter and facebook as there will always be new sponsors or new fundraising events. Check out www.arteaphotography.net to find out when our next fundraising event is!
