This week we spoke to Photographer Cath Stanley to hear more about how the landscape around her not only affects her creative practice but also can have a positive impact on her wellbeing.
An informal, online, advice and sharing session for photographers - free to attend! As things begin to open back up you might be finding it a challenge to balance your paid work, personal projects and life. For this Stay and Chat session online, we welcome anyone who would like to to show some of your recent work to a group for some friendly responses and encouragement, or just ask the group for advice, or test out some ideas. No need to bring finished work; this will be a space to engage, discuss and come away feeling inspired.

Over the course of the last three decades, Thomas Joshua Cooper (American, born 1946) has circumnavigated the globe making photographs of the most extreme points and locations surrounding the Atlantic Ocean.
The result is an episodic journey that covers five continents (Europe, Africa, North America, South America, and Antarctica). He has set foot on uncharted land masses, contributing to cartography and earning him naming rights of previously unknown islands and archipelagos.
