    Dude, I had to do this for my uni course and one of the main reasons why we did it was to make connections and network with other photographers who's work we admire on a one to one basis. It gave us the opportunity to learn how to approach other photographers with so in the future we would be confident to contact others should we want or need to.

    It would be in your best interest to email a photographer who you like directly and have a conversation. Just be really polite in your email as they will be busy and most likely receive other student emails. So long as you're serious and respectful they should be happy to spare a few minutes to help a fellow photographer out.
