Graham Diprose is Lead Tutor in Photography in the School of Graphic Design, at the London College of Communication, the largest college in the University of the Arts, London. Having spent many years as an advertising photographer, he now works with undergraduate and postgraduate students developing skills in all areas of applied and experimental digital and craft photography. He worked with two colleagues and the Museum of London, to remake a ten mile panorama of both banks of the River Thames from London Bridge to Greenwich that mirrored an original commissioned by the Port of London Authority in 1937. It was exhibited in City Hall in the centre of London in 2004 and more recently at the River & Rowing Museum in autumn 2005. A 180 page book of the project, ‘London`s Riverscape - Lost and Found’ with a forward by Ken Livingstone. Mayor of London, has sold its entire print run of 5000 copies.


Jeff Robins is a professional photographer with extensive experience of working in the advertising and marketing domain and as a lecturer and consultant to the profession, on digital imaging. His clients have included Nationwide Building Society, British Telecom, Hasbro and Bernard Matthews, along with various design, marketing and advertising agencies. A strong interest in computer technology made it easier for Jeff to embrace the new digital imaging techniques as they developed. Today Jeff teaches alongside Graham on postgraduate courses in digital image-making at the University of the Arts, London and is Course Director of a very intensive “Launch your Career in Photography” course, run by Artscom, in the college’s professional training area.
