Graduated 2016 Bachelor of Photography - Photojournalism Major
Rochelle studied photography in high school and originally wanted to be a fashion photographer. However, after attending the Obscura Photo Festival in Malaysia on a PSC trip, she realised that documentary photography was what she really wanted to do.
Rochelle uses photography as a tool whilst travelling, claiming that "my camera gives me the courage to travel to places I may never have gone to if I wasn't a photographer." When visiting new locations, Rochelle often looks for small NGO's in the area and contacts them to explore the possibility of a collaborative project. Recently she travelled specifically to work with an organisation called BeadWORKS in Kenya, after seeing their products at Zoos Victoria.
When asked to reflect on her time at PSC, Rochelle says, "I would highly recommend studying the Bachelor of Photography at PSC because of the small intimate classrooms and amazing teachers. I learnt so much while at PSC and grew so much as a photographer. PSC really shaped who I was as a photographer and helped me have the courage to have a career in photography."
