The photographic angle promotes education of the public in the art and science of photography by staging exhibitions and supporting professional, student and amateur photographers

About Us

The Photographic Angle holds free exhibitions that travel across the UK transforming otherwise empty spaces into temporary galleries. The exhibitions showcase contemporary work submitted by students, graduates and enthusiasts of the art of photography, giving the public the chance to explore this fascinating medium which can be art, an occupation, or simply a pastime.

For each exhibition, an expert in the art of photography is invited to select a new theme inspired by their own research, for which photographers can submit work to tour around TPA galleries throughout the UK. Work can be submitted to this website by visiting the "Submit to Exhibit" page. Following submission, chosen images are printed by the charity, at no expense to the photographers submitting them. New themes are chosen regularly, and exhibitions are constantly changing.

TPA is proud to be linked to the Royal Photographic Society, and in conjunction with it, is responsible for funding a bursary for work in relation to environmental awareness. In addition, the charity also awards a number of its own bursaries each year.

The charity is run by an enthusiastic team which is committed to bring photography to all levels of the community.

The team is made up of trustees, permanent staff and our ambassadors. Here is a description of the individual members of the team.

Our Ambassadors

Our Ambassadors are our local representatives of TPA based around the country. They use their local knowledge and expertise to assist in advertising and marketing our exhibitions, and with the installation of photographs at our exhibition venues.
Colin Griffith

Colin Griffith


Colin is TPA's Ambassador for Leeds and the surrounding area.

His uncontrollable desire to organise things has resulted in a very varied work life, ranging from leading expeditions across Africa and Asia to delivering many hundreds of corporate events and entertainments. The events organising work continues, with variety being the spice of life. He never knows what will be coming next. As his area of specialisation is interactive fun and games, this can see him involved one day in a team building event and the next at a lively theme party.

When not working, time is taken up with family, walking in the Yorkshire Dales where he lives and teaching 4x4 off road driving techniques.


Jo Williams

Jo Williams


Jo is TPA's Ambassador for the Midlands and the South West.

Jo has lived and breathed events and event organisation all her life which led her to setting up her own successful company over 10 years ago. Jo's company manages UK and Overseas events, from small gala dinners to overseas sales/training conferences for multi-national companies, providing on budget, on schedule events with a refreshing style."It's important to bring that personal touch and unique styles to events and with the backing of a great team anything is possible!"

Quentin Livingstone

Quentin Livingstone


Quentin is TPA's Ambassador for the London area.

Since graduation Quentin has worked in events which has given him the chance to see a lot of the world, have some interesting "incidents" and meet some famous people but he refuses to say more for fear of legal action!! Jobs include working for Mrs Thatcher on her personal election campaign in 1987, a Romanian Prince who has ideas about the application of quantum physics to life and Peta Haskell, who runs the Flirting Academy.

Quentin appreciates photography; being able to see the world through the photographers' eyes is so refreshing and free from rules. Away from work he enjoys terribly (shamefully) trashy TV, gardening, yoga and a somewhat full social life. And also believes that everyone should know how to make soup!


Sarah Wilmott

Sarah Wilmott


Sarah is an Ambassador for the Bristol area.

Sarah is a graduate from the University of the West of the England in Bristol, where she studied Graphic Design.

Outside work Lesley loves to travel and is still trying to decide whether she's happiest scuba diving in some new location or whizzing down the mountains on skis. When she's not on the road, Lesley can be found in the theatre, watching the ballet or wondering around a gallery.

She is passionate about her friends and family life and is very busy so starting the day with an early walk to see the ducks keeps it all in perspective.
