Gordana Johnson took up photography as a teenager in her native town of Split, Croatia. Initially, her preference was portraiture which brought her first awards. As a Londoner, however, her interests have broadened and she photographs whatever she finds exciting.

Frankie McAllister photographs urban, suburban and semi-industrial landscapes with a particular interest in the impact of man on nature (and the signs of nature reclaiming the man-made) as well as the seemingly random way scenes, both natural and constructed, often seem ‘arranged’ as visual tableaux.
Marco Ruggeri is a London-based amateur photographer. He focuses on the fine details in everyday objects and scenes, however mundane they may appear at first sight. Shooting abstract and in black & white is where his true passion lies.

Paul S. Smith is a Lecturer in Photography within the Creative Industries Department at Buckinghamshire College Group. His photographic work focuses on the alternative landscapes in the United Kingdom, Europe and America.

Dougie Wallace is an award-winning social documentary photographer, who has a distinct approach to highlighting the world we live in. Based in London his assignments and personal work see him traverse the world.
