Women's Photography Workshops

We use photography for positive social impact

We are a social enterprise based in Houghton Le Spring, running photography workshops, community projects, exhibitions and opportunities. We work in disadvantaged areas across the North East engaging predominantly with people with experience of mental health issues, neurodiversity and other barriers.

Photography Training

Workshops, One-to-One tuition and Online Learning

We teach photography at every level from the complete beginner with a smartphone to advanced photographers looking to improve their work, after a critical eye over a portfolio or for business advice and mentoring. We support people with learning barriers and experience of mental illness into creative careers. With extensive experience of both practising and teaching photography, we can tailor our training to you.
