I recently became a member of Shutter Hub. They’re an organisation who provide opportunities, support and networking for creative photographers worldwide. I had become quite frustrated in applying to open submission exhibitions and photo festivals, mainly due to the level of administration, cost and rejections I’d received. Shutter Hub are like a breath of fresh air in that they’re not too expensive, provide loads of opportunities to exhibit and have a really open-minded creative ethos.
So far I have exhibited in the following exhibitions:
Home at Gallery at home, Usk – an exhibition supporting homelessness charities across the UK. The exhibition showcased donated images, with all profits donated directly to Crisis uk, Shelter Cymru and Toiletries Amnesty.
‘Across the Water’ (River Severn) represents home for me. Whether living in Wales or England the bridges across the river Severn have always had a big impact on me.
