During the summer I went to visit Sam Baum at his studio in Bristol and I found it really beneficial. This was the first studio I had visited on my own and initially I was quite apprehensive about it as I hadn't shown my work to anyone out of the studio environment before. When I arrived the space was part of a large building filled with other creatives that I thought was great. The studio itself was small but this was due to it being a one person work place. After introductions we went to a near by cafe to go through my portfolio. I found this to be a big confidence boost as Sam was impressed with my work. We then went through a few of his projects and I was able to ask questions. I am really glad that I took the time to do this as I found it to be very helpful and I would definitely do it again.
