Following on from the success of our very first TPAtalk, which took place in Bristol earlier this month, we are pleased to announce that we will be hosting our second presentation in the series, this time at Redwing House in Milton Keynes. TPA is delighted to welcome photographer Sylvia Adams, whose work is currently touring the country as part of our exhibition Between Here & There.

Throughout the presentation, Sylvia will highlight her journey as an exhibiting TPA photographer from selecting a subject and preparing captured images, right through to exhibiting her work. The talk will no doubt provide an interesting and useful insight into one person's photographic experience and aspirations.

Attendees will also have the opportunity to view TPA's current exhibition, No Briton is an Island, which explores how the stories that unfold, and the memories that are created in certain places, immeasurably define what those places mean to us.

The talk is free of charge and is open to the general public so we invite you all to come along and hear what Sylvia has to say. It is a great opportunity to learn more about the process of submitting work for inclusion in one of our touring exhibitions. We hope to see you there!

What: TPAtalk with Photographer Sylvia Adams
Where: Redwing House, Kents Hill Park, Timbold Drive, Milton Keynes, MK7 6TT
When: Wednesday 5th December @ 19:00 - 20:00
Who: Open to the general public, students, photographic clubs and anyone with an interest in photography…

Spotlight: No Briton Is An Island By Michael Murphy

Posted by Stacey on: 16th Nov 2012


Michael Murphy Photography

As our No Briton is an Island exhibition gets underway, we thought it might be nice to speak to one of the photographers whose work features in the exhibition. Michael Murphy is a London-based photographer who submitted his images to our popular theme that explores the stories which unfold in places throughout Great Britain and which immeasurably define what a place means to us. We were extremely impressed with Michael's work and the way in which he uses the High Dynamic Range (HDR) technique to capture the magnificence of London. We wanted to find out more about Michael and his work and we're sure you'd like to hear what he has to say so we put him in the hot seat for you.…

Friday Link Love

Posted by Stacey on: 9th Nov 2012

It has been a busy few weeks stateside, what with the big storm and the re-election of Barack Obama as President of the United States of America. Throughout the long and bitter Presidential campaign, Twitter was used as a vehicle for campaign aides, candidates and the press to get their messages across, inform and entertain. The moment the news broke that Obama had been re-elected, the President tweeted a photograph of himself hugging the First Lady with a tweet reading "Four more Years". The tweet was retweeted so many times that it has now become the most retweeted Twitter post of all time. This just goes to show the power of social media in spreading news images around the world.

Setting Up At Fore 1 & 2 In Solihull

Posted by Stacey on: 8th Nov 2012


Operations Manager Hannah on site in Solihull


Earlier this week, we introduced Hannah, our Operations Manager, and we thought it might be nice to follow her on one of her important trips out of the office just to see what she gets up to when she is out and about. Last Friday, she was all the way up in Solihull setting up the Vernacular photography exhibition at Fore 1 & 2. On site Hannah was met by the crew who help erect all the images and transform the space into a gallery.

Close Up: Operations Manager Hannah Clegg

This month we would like to introduce you to our fantastic Operations Manager Hannah Clegg. If it wasn't for Hannah and all the hard work that she puts in we would never be able to operate on the scale that we do. Hannah is the lynchpin of the organisation ensuring that everything runs smoothly, on time and on budget. The rest of us are completely in awe of how efficient she is and how she manages to retain so much information. You can ask her anything about any tour, any building, any ambassador and she instinctively knows the answer, without so much as a glimpse at her records. It really is quite impressive and quite frankly we don't know how she does it. With so many people to deal with and so many things to organise, there is no doubt that Hannah's contribution to TPA is integral to what we do. So much so that we dread her even going on holiday! Anyway, we caught up with her to find out more about her role here and what she likes doing outside of work.…
