Courteney Hawcock is a digital journalist from Doncaster. She has had a passion for photography and writing since being young, which grew stronger after studying photography and media at A-Level.
Her favourite things to photograph vary from nature and animals to live concerts, which has been shown in her work over the years. After undertaking a project in a dog shelter in her first year of university, she realised this was a big passion and she would like to do more work on the topic of dogs in difficult situations.
Courteney’s showcase project is about ‘The Stereotypes of Dangerous Dogs’. Through her research and investigation she hopes her hybrid journalist piece of photographs and interviews will be educational. Its aim is to better understand the breeds of dogs and erase the stigma around them, in order to impact their lives positively.
