About Me: My name is Jodie Gabrielle Waite. I am 24 years old. I am from a small town called Doncaster in South Yorkshire. Aside from photography, my interests are fashion, music and film. I styled all the shoots in my portfolio. I have always been creative and was often described by my teachers as having a great imagination! I have always wanted to work in the fashion industry, as a child it was my dream to be a fashion designer, untill I realised you can make a living by taking photographs!
College: I started studying BA Honours in Visual Communication at Doncaster Collage's University Center High Melton in September 2006. My major was photography. In my first year I achieved a 2:1, which I was very proud of. During my second year I took the classes fashion photography, advertising photography, social documentary/photojournalism and architecture & interior photography. I received another 2:1 for my second year. I have just completed my third year of BA (hons) Visual Communication. I wrote my dissertation on the subject of 1990s heroin chic fashion photography and received a First for my grade. My final major project was fashion and editorial based and is called ‘Rock n Roll; Fact n Fiction’. For my final grade I received a Degree with Honours in the First Class, achieving a First in all modules of the final year, which were dissertation, my final major project and professional practice.
About work : For as long as i can remember I have loved cameras. I have loved taking photographs, been surrounded by photographs and looking at photographs.
I love portraiture. I've always been surrounded by pictures of the people I love. I believe portraits can do many things... make you smile, make you cry, give you confidence (portraits of yourself), etc.
As I have grown up I have also developed an obsession with fashion. Which is the other area I work in, fashion and editorial.
