Student success


Rachel Canale made a name for herself in the photography world when a photo she took for a uni assignment made the cover of New York’s PROMO Magazine (pictured).

“Once I saw the outcome I knew I had to submit the images to a magazine, they were the best I had done before and they were unique,” says Rachel.
