Job: Property photographer requiring website


An email has just come through for a job:


I was wondering if your students are able to set up a website for my father’s business. He’s been in the game for over 30 years, but has never really had a decent website. I know students help the community to gain experience and for course work etc, so I was wondering if a media student would be able to help design a website for us.

My father will never get round to asking, so I’m asking on his behalf.

Many thanks,
