Chad day inspires young snapper

A budding Mansfield photographer captured this snap after being inspired by a student journalism training day at the Chad.

Kate Leonardo, an A-level student Brunts Academy, captured the projection of the legend of Robin Hood across The Folk House building on Westfield Lane.

The 16-year-old had joined her classmates at the Chad office on Sherwood Oaks Business Park recently where they learned about life on a local newspaper as part of a work experience afternoon in conjunction with the Mansfield Learning Partnership.

And it only fuelled her passion for living a life behind the lens.

She said: “I’ve been into it since I can remember, I always loved recording things, my uncle inspired me to take it on as he lives in Australia as a photographer and he’s always been just a Skype call away.

“I have an ever-growing love for art and it’s forms. I’d like to go on and work somewhere where the work is based on creativity, however I’ve also looked at clinical illustration and really enjoyed it!”
