Photography students at Ayrshire College have launched an end-of term exhibition at the College’s Kilwinning Campus.

The Level 6 Photography students organised the exhibition in their Essential Skills class; a collaborative project for their semester two ‘Working with Others’ unit, deciding on ‘What Makes You Happy’ as their theme.

Showcasing their photographic abilities and artistic perspectives through a diverse array of photographs, each image provided a unique glimpse into the student photographers' lives, revealing the little things that bring them joy and capturing the essence of happiness.

The exhibition also featured a collaboration between the L6 Photography and Makeup Artistry classes. As part of a fundraising initiative for the HIVE, staff and students had the opportunity to obtain professional portraits of themselves, skilfully crafted by the Makeup Artistry students.

This collaboration not only added an extra layer of creativity to the event, but also showcased the incredible talent and teamwork within the Kilwinning Campus community.

About the exhibition, photography student Martyn Cane said: “Focusing on the theme 'Things that make us happy' offered a wide range of subjects and gave many different stories to tell.

"I'm very proud of what we achieved, we worked together and now our images will be displayed at the Ayr campus end-of-year show.”
