Bart Staszowski, who graduated from BA Photography at UCLAN has recently been shortlisted for professional photographer of the year, in no less than three separate categories, Fashion, Location and Black and White.
The winners are to be announced later this year and we suspect that he will pick up at least one of these awards. Congratulations Bart.

Second year students took a trip to the Lancashire County Council Archives to get an insight into their working processes, how to become a contributor and what photographic treasures are held in the large collection.
Vicci McCann -senior archivist- was kind enough to dig out a range of interesting material from the archive to display to the students. Everything from a 17th Century hand written letter discussing the gun powder plot, to some early 20th Century Daguerreotypes were available for perusal.
Building links with a local institution like this has become an excellent method of first hand learning for all involved.
