Hello March!

We’ve got a quick round up of the going’s on at West Studios. As always we‘re really busy - today, we have Ian Judson from Killamarsh Arts & Minds setting up his imminent exhibition. I am absolutely blown away by the volume of work and how emotive the pictures and sculptures are. I cannot wait for this exhibition to open as I think it will speak to a lot of people. We have an interview on our website with Ian - click here to read it.

Migrant Journey, Border Control runs from 8th March until 29th March.

Creative Courses

Get those creative juices flowing with our Studio Photography Course. This two week short course starts on Monday 18th March and continues on the following Monday. In it, you can gain a greater understanding of your camera or learn right from scratch. Your tutor will take you through topics such as shutter speed and white balance. The workshop will also go through aperture, ISO Exposure and Studio lighting.

All you will need is a notebook and a USB stick to save your photos on. All other equipment can be provided but you’re more than welcome to bring your own camera. This course costs just £60.
