About the Tutor

Barbara picked up her first digital SLR camera in 2009 and immediately fell in love with photography. Her main areas of interest are in still-life, macro and abstract photography. The inspiration for her work comes from the patterns, shapes and colours around us, and particularly from the world of nature.

Barbara has worked as a bookseller, a library assistant and as a tutor for Darlington Borough Council.
