Miles Aldridge

Miles Aldridge was born in London in 1964. He studied at Central St. Martins and after graduating worked briefly as an illustrator before coming to photography. His photographs have appeared in museum and gallery exhibitions worldwide including in 2013 a major retrospective of his work entitled I Only Want You to Love Me 2013 at Somerset House. In 2014 he was invited by Tate Britain to create a photographic installation entitled Carousel as a response to Mark Gertler’s unsettling 1916 painting, Merry-go-Round. He has works in the permanent collection of The National Portrait Gallery, London, The V&A, London and the ICP, New York.

Simon Roberts

Simon Roberts (1974) is a British photographic artist whose work deals with our relationship to landscape and notions of identity and belonging. Often employing expansive tableaux photographs, his approach is one of creating wide-ranging surveys of our time, which examine contemporary economic, cultural and political landscapes. His photographs are taken with great technical precision, from elevated positions. The distanced vantage point allows the relationship of individual bodies and groups to the landscape to be clearly observed, and echoes the visual language of history painting.

John Ross

A highly regarded commercial photographer. Ross currently works from a studio in Battersea, which he also runs as multi-complex commercial studio space. He has received many photography awards including D&AD, AOP and Creative Review Awards, in commercial work as well as personal project categories. His work continues to feature in numerous magazines and publications across the world. His recent high profile commercial projects include campaigns for Nike, Drambuie Whisky and Highland Spring Water.
