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.

Competition - Portraiture

Our new competition, ‘Portraiture’ is now open for entries.

Portraiture is one of the most common forms of photography. The art of capturing a person or a group of people has been around long before photography was even invented. But with the advent of the camera, portrait photography became a much simpler and quicker way to create images in which people are the main point of interest. In these images the face, facial features as well as facial expressions are made predominant and the images attempt to capture the personality of the subject.

For more information about this new competition, and to enter up to 5 images, please go to our Competitions page.

This competition will close on 30th April at midnight (GMT)

Feedback - Footprints

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.

Our Footprints exhibition is now on tour, so please do go along and have a look if it comes to a venue near you.

This is just a little reminder that all of our photography exhibitions are free to have a look around. We welcome group visits from schools, colleges and universities and will do whatever we can, to ensure that students gain the most from their experience. Please email or give us a call on 0800 028 7338 to discuss this further.

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.
