Tutors Peter Hughes and James Abelson

Peter Hughes grew up with Black & White photography and turned professional in 1990.  A combination of maintaining a child like imagination and decades of technical experience in a wide range of photography, means that Peter can assist pupils in creating fantastic images from a variety of subjects.

James Abelson has over 20 year’s experience as a professional photographer, James has photographed everything from Jonathan Ross to a jam doughnut! His love affair with photography began when he was 14. His aunt bought him a “do it yourself” photo developing kit and the thrill of having a first glimpse of the finished image has never left him. James hopes to pass on his enduring passion for photography to all who choose to join this summer’s course.
