Colin Trow-Poole FRPS FIPF MPAGB

Originally a darkroom worker, Colin has embraced the digital age. He enjoys the tactile physicality of the print and consider that the way an image is printed can influence the meaning and the emotional values attached to it. He believes that printing is an intimate and exquisite craft that lies at the heart of photography and that photographers should print their images and encourage others to do the same.

Colin is a lecturer for PermaJet Imaging.
