Benjamin Graham is an internationally published freelance photographer, college photography tutor and occasional filmmaker based in the south of England, who seems to spend most of his life on the road and on location in a campervan…

He has been creatively motivated by photography for over forty years, but his interest became obsessive around 2010. He began practising semi-professionally in 2014 and his body of commissioned and published material has gradually evolved since then.

In October of 2017 he was honoured beyond words to be named the UK Landscape Photographer of the Year, winning first prize in the ‘Take a View’ LPOTY competition – so it seems only appropriate that you should all now refer to him as: El Poty.

In addition to LPOTY 2017, he was a category finalist in OPOTY 2017 (the outdoor photographer of the year competition); eight of his images, across three categories, were shortlisted for OPOTY 2016; and he was an OPOTY 2015 finalist. With his series ‘Artists in Residences’ he was in the initial shortlist stage of the 2013 Taylor Wessing National Portrait Gallery competition.

Benjamin is dedicated to celebrating the beauty of Great Britain’s coast, countryside and architecture through his photography, examples of which regularly appear in major newspapers, magazines and online editorial galleries. The Times, The Guardian, The Daily Telegraph, The Independent, The Observer, The Mail, The Express and The Mirror all feature his work and he has had images published in numerous countries, including the US, Italy, France, Ireland, Spain, Denmark, Finland, Poland, Russia, Australia and China.

His work is represented nationally and internationally by Barcroft Media and Getty images.

He enjoys sharing his knowledge and experiences with students and aficionados of photography and regularly gives illustrated presentations to photographic societies, schools and colleges. He hosts workshop tours in beautiful regions of the UK and has residential creative photography courses running throughout the academic year at West Dean College, near Chichester.

For those interested in advancing their photography technique through personal mentoring, Benjamin offers one-to-one and small group tuition. He also teaches post-production image refinement and interpretation methods using Adobe software.

Viveca Koh FRPS: “A Photographer’s Perspective – My Life Through a Lens” @ Cowdray Hall
Oct 16 @ 7:30 pm – 10:00 pm


“A Photographer’s Perspective: My Life Through a Lens “

Viveca’s third lecture follows on from her first two – ‘Urban Exploration to Fine Art: A Photographic Journey’ and ‘iPhoneography to Fellowship: My Continuing Journey’. In this talk she will discuss the various photographic techniques that she has been experimenting with, continuing to develop her work and the way that she sees things.

She will be showing monochrome photographs shot in locations in Venice and the UK, a portrait commission from Tim Andrews (involving a man with Parkinson’s Disease who has been photographed during the last eight years by 370 different photographers), and experimentations with a Holga 120 film camera. Viveca will be sharing some new iPhone images, a method of photographic capture that she still greatly enjoys and uses regularly, and of course there will be images featuring the texture overlays that she loves to work with, including a series of vintage postcards.

There will also be a series of colour photos processed in an ‘analogue’ style to replicate shots taken with an old camera, composites capturing the essence of a rainy day in London, and a set of pictures entitled ‘Treasures of the Chateau’, based on beautiful objects discovered in France.
With this talk Viveca is aiming to demonstrate the new directions in which she is heading, as well as showing more of the style of work that is familiar to viewers of her previous presentations.

About Viveca Koh FRPS

Viveca is a self-taught Fine Art photographer who sees potential images everywhere around her, often things that many seem to miss or simply pass by. Abandoned buildings are a passion of hers, as are the details of places that attract her eye, the minutiae that collects in hidden corners, the small parts of bigger things that are fascinating in their own right. She enhances many of her photographs with texture layers and overlays, experimenting with digital double exposure, using old documents that she has collected to add a different dimension to the work in question.

Following on from her previous distinctions LRPS and ARPS she attained Fellowship of The Royal Photographic Society in 2014. She is a member of the RPS Visual Art Group and Digital Imaging Group, and Honorary Secretary of the former.

She has exhibited in a number of venues, and all her photographs are sold via her website as signed numbered Limited Edition Giclée Fine Art prints.
