For a number of years, we have been building up Stills’ Library which is now full of often hard to find volumes, including monographs, artists books and critical readers.
Fresh Focus is a community for graduate photographers where they can seek peer criticism and support for their creative endeavours. The aim of the group is simple – to bring fresh practitioners together in a focused and supportive environment with the intention of fuelling critical engagement, promoting good working practices and connecting them to the wider photographic community.
Each year we work on a variety of partnership projects, such as artist residencies and commissions, in order to offer more opportunities for those working within the field of photography.
Stills’ courses are taught by a small team of freelance artists and designers, chosen for both their expertise in their respective fields and their ability to impart information.
Our tutors are experienced professionals from a variety of fields of photography, digital media and lens based arts. They are all freelance practitioners with varied and exciting practices that inform and complement the courses they deliver.
We have worked with most of them over many years and highly value the skills each contributes to Stills’ unique offer.
