Photographing people – Ffotogallery

18 Apr 2017, Posted by kate_mercer in Cardiff, Community, Ffotogallery, Out & About

Heya everyone,

After the success of our first term, I can confirm that I will again be leading the next term’s “Photographing People” module in May as part of Ffotogallerys education programme based in Cardiff’s Chapter Arts Centre.

In case you need reminding, full information about the module is below! There are also many more courses on offer through Ffotogallery’s education programme via their website – full details and outlines of which can be found at the following page online:

Ffotogallery also offer gift vouchers – in multiples of £20 or £50 – which can be accepted as part or full payment towards one of their education courses. A potentially perfect gift for people with a passion for photography.

Enrollment is open! For more information about their courses, or how you can be involved in Ffotogallery’s wider education programme please contact: 029 2034 1667 /

Hope to see some of you at Ffotogallery in the near future.

Ffotogallery is the national development agency for photography and lens based media in Wales, their aim being to develop the practice, enjoyment and understanding of contemporary photography and lens-based media to national and international audiences. It’s a pleasure to be able to support their efforts through their course programme, which is part of their wider programme of commissioning, exhibitions, publishing and events. Their courses are a unique opportunity for people outside of full-time education to develop their interests in photography in small groups, in an enjoyable informal atmosphere in artist-led sessions.
