I am a qualified IT teacher with hobbies in photography, Photoshop and psychology. I coordinate the learning and community aspects at the Photo School in addition to running beginner photography events myself and assisting at the monthly workshops.

I enjoy macro (flowers and food) and social (everyday contrasts) photography; my favourite photographer is Martin Parr. I am interested in how photography can promote mindfulness, cultivate different perspectives and how the development of the medium affects society today.
