One young lady from Playa Flamenca achieved her dream assignment recently when she found herself on the ‘Red Carpet’ and surrounded by stars at the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden.
Lucy Nicole Rogers was there with three other students to cover the awards as part of her BTEC Extended Diploma course in photography Huntingdon College Cambridgeshire.
The trip was arranged by College tutor Mark Woods-Nunn.
Prior to moving back to the UK to study photography in September Lucy has lived on the Orihuela Costa since the age of 4. She graduated in 2014 from IES Playa Flamenca School with a High School Certificate qualification after which she was accepted into Huntingdon College.
After her brief taste of life as a member of the paparazzi Lucy, who is considering press photography as a possible career, said that as the stars arrived it was an absolutely unbelievable adrenaline rush. She had to work hard amongst a thousand or so other photographers to stand her ground but she knew that she had a job to do, and that was to get great photos.
She said that she was particularly pleased with the shots she got of Eddie Redmayne who went on to win the BAFTA and an OSCAR at the 87th Academy Awards in LA last week.
“Most of the celebrities were really lovely, especially Dianna Agron, Eddie Redmayne, Jack O’Connell, Tom Hiddleston and Rosamund Pike. They all took their time trying to interact with the fans as they walked past. When Keira Knightley appeared on the carpet everyone was particularly respectful toward her.”
Eddie Redmayne said that he will be visiting his old University at Cambridge on his return to the UK when he will show off his OSCAR and as such Lucy has sent him her photographs and is hoping she gets the opportunity to meet him in person in Cambridge.
Tutor Mr Woods-Nunn said: “Attending such a real life event was invaluable as it gives learners the opportunity to experience the life of a photographer which often requires a great deal of standing around in the cold, concentrating on the subject and not letting others distract you.”
“As a result of their doggedness they achieved some great work, particularly as this was their first time at such an event. The whole event went very well, and was a good experience for all concerned. They are a great bunch of students.”
In contact with the Leader, Lucy said that she would like to thank her Art Teacher Consuelo and Tutor Lola at the Playa Flamenca School for all their hard work in putting her on the road to success. She said that the excellent Spanish Education System has provided her with a great platform which she hopes to build on in her future years.
Lucy’s brother, 16 year old Aaron, is also studying at the IES Playa Flamenca School. He lives with mother Dawn at La Zenia Beach and is well known in local football circles as the skipper of CDM Cadets.
