As well as learning how to get the best results from your camera, we will also be exploring historical and contemporary photographers. And IGNITING your creativity, passion and flare to start creating your own individual portfolios which can be used to continue your passion for photography or use for a platform for Further or Higher Education.
Alice Paul and Crystal Eastman founders of The ERA- Equal Rights Amendment has been trying to past the ERA in Congress in the United States since 1923. Guaranteeing equal rights to all men and women. Its still being fought now! I am amazed by this!
The United States join 6 other countries in the world; Iran, Somali, Sudan, South Sudan, Tonga and Palua. That have not ratified the UN Convention on the elimination on all forms of discrimination of women. Maybe Donald Trump could be the pioneer?
If you have time check out the link below its nuts the history behind this amendment. Why would anyone oppose this? its just makes sense. Don’t we all deserve basic rights to an equal society?
I live in the UK and the equivalent act is the Equal Act of 2010 which was formed on the anti-discrimination law.
I guess living in the UK I have taken this for granted and just assumed that this protection of Law would be widely recognised world wide.
‘Free The Nipple’ has become the fastest growing movement of our time. The mission behind ‘Free The Nipple’ is to raise awareness, and effect change, in the areas of inequality for women and men that are still being experienced in the world today.
The image that accompanies this post is a self portrait of myself for a ‘Free The Nipple’ Exhibition opening on the 1st Sept at The Creative Bubble in Swansea Wales. I will be showing my work along side other vibrant and exciting artists. Very pleased to be part of such an important campaign.

My approach to teaching is to plant seeds of inspiration to be interpreted by each individuals own unique creative way of seeing.
“It is our duty to fight for our freedom.
It is our duty to win.
We must love each other and support each other.
We have nothing to lose but our chains”
I recently set my students a photographic brief looking at the theme of ‘Journey’ and its connection between Light and atmosphere. Below is the brief, followed by Picture Maker’s Student Bethan’s photographic collection.
The Troublemakers’ festival took place recently on Swansea’s High Street in South Wales. And they are certainly changing the world and minds in Swansea and its communities. Embracing, caring, listening, sharing and challenging, and leading by example that independent thinking, social co operatives, community spirit are still alive.
The seed has been planted and dug up many times to bring the Palace Theatre on High Street back to life. And the Trouble Makers’ have started!!!!!
Lets watch this space, will it crumble or nourish Our community of Swansea Again. I really hope it gets the kiss of life.
