Meet the Tutor: Tom Arber – Digital Photography Portfolio Building Course

There are still some places remaining for our Digital Photography Portfolio Building Course with Tom Arber. In advance of the course, which starts this Saturday 18 June, Tom’s tells us a little more about the course and a recent project that he refined into a final portfolio of images. To book a place on the course online, click here.

‪I am really looking forward to the upcoming portfolio course, working to build the skills of photographers and support them in the creation of a high quality and personal portfolio. Over the 5 weeks we will develop skills in, not only taking better images, but also considering how a set or sequence or images works, how selecting the best images is key and how digital post-production can help to bring fresh life into images.

The Hepworth Wakefield Print Fair: Introducing Helen Roddie

My studio practice combines a passion for plants, drawing and print. I work with vinyl-lino and the everyday, natural things that surround me. Walks with my dog across local fields give me the time to appreciate all that is bright and beautiful.  Much of my inspiration comes from hedgerows – the chaotic tangle of plants they hide have a special appeal as ever-changing, living sculptures.  I love the search   for the unusual and peculiar amongst the ordinary and familiar.
