A FORMER Priestley student is flying high after securing a role as an RAF photographer.

Beth Roberts, who studied Photography, English Literature and Art Foundation at Priestley, is now capturing significant moments in the Royal Air Force’s history.

“My job involves documenting everything for historical records, including VIP visits, as well as damage to aircraft if there’s to be further investigation,” said Beth.

After completing her A-Level, BTEC and then Art Foundation course Beth applied for the RAF. Her basic training lasted 10 weeks and the photography training lasted 28 weeks.

Beth, a former pupil at The Heath, said: “I get to learn so much and have the opportunity to practise many different skills with the RAF.

“One day I hope to possibly teach other military students at the Defence School of Photography, but for now I just love the job I am doing.”
