    This is great Les, it was good to hear you talking about ethics and considering how your photography could be used or misused in the future. I think you are highlighting some really important social issues with your work and I hope it can influence some positive change. We should definitely have more videos like this hearing from the tutors, it sounds obvious but as distance learners it helps give a human face to the tutors and we get to hear about your work and experiences. Thanks for sharing this.

      Thanks Craig, there is some amazing practice amongst the tutors at OCA, I agree, I’d like to hear from them all too!

    Thank you for sharing this video Les, I’m an OCA fine art student from Doncaster and think what you are trying to put across is a very important social issue and I wish you well in your work. Thank you for sharing. Sandra
