F2 see photography as an ideal medium to nurture, release, maximise and develop creative skills within young people. Photography has many attributes and disciplines which work across the curriculum. Its immediacy makes it an ideal medium for exploration through both traditional film and contemporary digital practices. Through a series of workshops F2 wish to introduce photography in its many forms and applications to as wider audience as possible. A key element of F2 is to recognise and reference the strategies outlined by the Governments Every Child Matters and Youth Matters initiatives. For more information email me to request a pack or go directly to the F2 website via the links page.

Nine Years Nine Ladies - The Battle of Stanton Moor
Resistance is not always futile !
On the 18th April 2009 the remaining few protestors left the site for the last time. Very little evidence of the nine year occupation now remains. Everything was dismantled, cleared away and the site made safe. Victory was hard fought so that future generations can enjoy this beautiful part of the Peak District. My thanks go particularly to Graham, Rowena, Jav, Aimee, Tez, Ruth, Phil, Rob, Roy for welcoming and allowing me their time to document their achievements.
