Arts Council Artsmark Schools

This month has been fabulously busy and I have added three new brands to my portfolio. One of these is The Arts Council’s Artsmark as The Forge, an organisation that creates arts activities amongst the young in the North East commissioned my photography. This month I visited three schools and colleges in the local area to capture arts based school photography for the Artsmark awarded by the Arts Council.

The images will be used across the Artsmark and Forge Websites and feature Northumberland and County Durham located schools: Collingwood Media Arts College in Morpeth, Greenfield School in Newton Aycliffe and Ovingham Middle School in Prudhoe.

The classes I photographed were lively and the kids were clearly loving the arts activities particularly Ovingham where the the teacher Neil played Oxygen by Jean Michelle Jarre and had colours spots lighting the class. Very atmospheric! The most challenging shoot was the photography studio at Collingwood. Shooting in other photographer’s studio spaces and lighting set ups was interesting! Apparently the students afterwards used my photos as a learning tool. Let’s hope I got them right!
