I found the guest lecture by Tony Cobley very insightful. He does the kind of commercial work I can see myself doing in the future (and he does it well). Plus he gave me an idea of what the life of a professional photographer is like, something I found very useful. Also as he is a past student of Plymouth College of Art and works only in the South West, it reinforsed the fact that I could actually be a professional photographer and not have to move to somewhere like London. this is something I have doubted in the past.
