BSSC Alumnus, Lincoln Rogers (Class of 2016), is happy to admit that school just wasn’t for him… at least the first time round.
But when his new-found passion for creativity saw him re-enrol at BSSC in 2015, and with a whole new array of subjects—including Media and Photography—he didn’t look back.
It’s this same drive to create that influenced his decision to bypass the more traditional university pathway and take a chance on his own business, ‘In the Vines Creative’.
His work with ‘In the Vines’ covers a broad range of projects, including wedding videos, dance films, music videos and short films, and has developed to the point where, as Lincoln says, people are starting to call him.
“I think the most satisfying thing about the work I do is the reactions of the clients I work for,” Lincoln said. “I think weddings in particular are a once in a lifetime thing and it’s great when people love what you’ve created for them.
“At a wedding, you’re essentially the director and there are so many things that can potentially go wrong. It’s a great way to build skills.”
Lincoln contacted his former BSSC Media teacher, Rachel Qillinan and offered to run a workshop for her students on the subject How to get the most out of your Canon DLSR camera. It’s another string he’d like to add to his creative bow.
“Helping other people explore their creative side and find their way around a camera is something I love doing,” he said. “It feels like a natural extension of the business.”
