Who’s who at OCA  The Freeman View
 The Open College o the Arts has had a long-runningrelationship with the photographer and author MichaelFreeman; since the OCA’s Art o Photography course wasrst opened to enrolments 20 years ago. This relationshiptook another step orward with the launch last year o 
– Michael’s blog, produced by OCA. The site was launched with a view to, as Michael puts it 
 present a view of photography by photographers, which may  sound obvious enough, but in a world where photography has become a near-universal activity, its meaning has become somewhat scrambled.
 The Freeman View has grown rapidly in popularity over thecourse o the past year, thanks to an enthralling succession o Michael’s observations, techniques and one-to-one interviewswith photographers around the world. You can nd the blogat 
- we look orward to readingyour comments!
I am ty six years old, married with grownup children and grandchildren. I workull time as an oce manager in a busy NHS GP surgery. I have always enjoyedphotography but with the purchase o my rst digital SLR camera became eagerto learn more than the basics. Hence Ienrolled with the Open College o the Arts and have been studying with themor nearly two years. I completed The Art o Photography level one course last yearand have just commenced on my secondcourse: People and Place. The fexibility oered by the college tsperectly into my sometimes hectic liestyle. The tutor support and coursework areinvaluable, they provide the perect ramework to progress urther. The college has an ethos that age should not be an obstacle tourther education, a sentiment I wholeheartedly agree with. I hopeto eventually gain a Creative Arts degree, and eel gaining newknowledge should be a lielong process. As I progressed throughmy rst course I ound mysel looking at my surroundings with adierent eye, and tried to incorporate this into my photography.‘Strong’ is an image taken as part o my rst assignment, Iwanted the light and acial expression o my model to add tothe menacing tone. I chose a emale as traditional gender rolesare rapidly changing in our society and wanted to refect on this.‘How’s it look?’ is an image taken as part o a project creating a photographic narrative, very much infuenced by Martin Parr’s styleo photography, and submitted as part o my nal assessment.Working through the course work you areencouraged to look at other photographerswork and how they create their personalstyle, which is something the courses aimto help you achieve. The OCA website hasorums and enables contact with otherstudents and an opportunity to view andcomment on their portolios. I have so muchmore to learn and with the help o the OpenCollege hope to continue or a long timewith my studies.
