The Photographic Angle (TPA) is a charitable organisation set up to promote the education of the public in the art and science of photography. We stage exhibitions that are free to enter and that travel across the UK transforming otherwise empty spaces into photographic galleries. Exhibitions comprise large scale photographs together with technical information, information about the photographic theme, boards containing inspirational quotes and boards containing hints and tips on photography. Professional, student and amateur photographers submit their work for possible inclusion in one of our travelling exhibitions, which are curated by our Head of Design. The work that we do offers the public a chance to explore this fascinating medium which can be art, a profession, or simply a pastime.

A Splash of Colour is coming to Feltham

A Splash of Colour will be making it’s way to Feltham for a one-off exhibition very soon!

It will be heading for Bedfont Lakes, opening on Wednesday 14th February until Sunday 18th February, 10am to 3pm.

Colour is a great way to communicate emotion in our images. Cool colours on the blue-green end of the colour spectrum often provoke feelings of calm, peace and tranquillity, whilst warmer colours such as reds, oranges and yellows can make us feel happy, optimistic or excited.

This exhibition brings together a full spectrum of colour images from all aspects of our lives.

We look forward to welcoming you to our exhibition and brightening your day!

Wildlife of the World Exhibition News

Our stunning and inspiring theme, ‘Wildlife of the World’ is on tour this quarter, arriving in London next week after having a little rest.

The exhibition will open in Byron House, St James’s Street, London on Wednesday 21st February and remain open until Sunday 25th February, from 10am to 3pm each day.

It is often said that patience is a virtue and this is certainly the case when it comes to wildlife photography. The images exhibited here are all reflections of the great lengths that our photographers have been to in order to capture their shots. The beauty of this exhibition lies in its diversity.

We look forward to welcoming you to our exhibition!

Footprints Exhibitions News

Footprints is having a little break, before reopening in Maidenhead later this month.

You can catch footprints in Bray House, Maidenhead from Saturday 17th to Wednesday 21st February, open each day from 10am to 3pm.

Launched by The Photographic Angle in 2010, Footprints was designed to promote a greater sense of awareness of man’s unprecedented impact on the environment. The four different themes ̶ Flow, Change, Contrast and Serenity ̶ inspired photographers to present their environmental concerns and to highlight many of the global environmental issues challenging us today.

We hope you’ll be able to come along to our exhibition!

Feedback - A Splash of Colour

Here is some feed back we have received from a visitor to Sovereign House in Leeds:

“Gorgeous sets of photography – clearly laid out – loved the size of the images, felt each one could be greatly appreciated. Such a great couple of hours – so interesting to some artists’ works divided and be able to tell whose was who’s! Wonderful day out – such a great way to learn to appreciate photography.” Emma Louise Hooker

Some feedback received from John Cant, who visited the exhibition in Peterborough back in 2014.

The venue and the exhibition were all excellent. In fact we were quite taken back with the quality of everything. Well done, really enjoyed it.

Competition - Exposure

Our new competition ‘Exposure’ is now open for entries.

Exposure can mean many things depending on which interpretation you decide to take as your inspiration. One thing that it could mean is ‘the state of having no protection from something harmful.’ Thinking about exposure from this angle may inspire you seek out images that show people at the mercy of extreme weather conditions, or maybe prey animals who are out in the open trying to escape a predator.

Whatever your take on this theme, we’re looking for creative submissions that interpret the term exposure. What we’re not looking for is anything offensive or of a sexually explicit nature. Good luck with your entries. We’re looking forward to seeing your submissions.

For more information and the link to enter this competition, please go to our Competitions page.

This competition will be open for entries until midnight on 28th February 2018

Our submission process has changed

Anyone who has submitted work to be included in one of our catalogues in the past, would have done this via a submissions page link. However, due to an overwhelming and fantastic response to our competitions, TPA have decided to curate its catalogues from the best of our competition entrants. The quality of work submitted to competitions over the years has been outstanding hence the decision to merge the two.

In short, anyone interested in having their work displayed at our venues should enter our competitions instead. The favourites will be contacted in due course throughout the year as and when a new catalogue print is scheduled. Please view our competitions page for further details.
