Introducing the Metro Ambassador Programme

23 March 2015
In Metro’s thirty-five years of business we have developed and nurtured many relationships with student organisations, colleges and universities believing resolutely that encouragement, support and advise given at the start of a career is invaluable.

With that in mind we have established Metro Ambassador, a new and on-going student outreach programme, encouraging student photography organisations to appoint one student from each year group as an 'ambassador' for Metro.

The selected student will receive special discounts across all Metro Imaging and Metroprint services, an invitation to spend a week on site working with Metro’s technicians and printers, two portfolio and practice reviews by industry professionals, networking opportunities with student ambassadors from other institutes, as well as a year-end group exhibition with other student ambassadors.  

The first of our ambassadors to be appointed is Monika Bishwakarma, better known as Monika Bk, a 3rd-year student in BA (Hons) Digital Photography from Ravesbourne. Commenting on the appointment Monika said “It's great to have been appointed as a student ambassador from Ravensbourne! So far I've had chance to visit Metro and gain insights to their process and working practices. I also had a chance to shadow Chris, the head retoucher. Retouching is something that I do in my own work and want to get more advanced in so it was a brilliant experience to shadow a professional! With my final major project exhibition just a few months away Jack has been great with providing me with guidance on the framing and printing options which I've been passing down to my fellow peers.

Our latest addition to the programme is Amanda Hook, 2nd year student in BA (Hons) Photography from University College Suffolk, Ipswich. She comments, "I didn't think I would ever be selected but I really feel honoured to have been chosen to work with Metro, I can't wait to get involved more and see what else is in store."

If you are a photography student and wish to know more or think your college/university might be interested in taking part in the ambassador programme please contact us.
