Landscape Photographer of the Year 2012
"The world around us is a fascinating place and I photograph all aspects of it. No subject is off limits, from wild hills and mountains to city streets and smoking factories, I love to photograph them all.
I also perform classical music professionally. I have played my clarinet in the major cities of five continents and performed at thirty consecutive seasons of BBC Promenade Concerts at the Royal Albert Hall, London.
My photographs are represented by Getty Images and SuperStock USA and can be regularly seen in publications ranging from The Jewish Chronicle to Time Magazine".

Stephen Cosh – "Street Photography"

http://www.stephencosh.co.uk/about-stephen-cosh-photography.html

Stephen Cosh is a 45 year old photographer and designer based in Scotland.
Stephen discovered photography as a youngster but took a ten year hiatus from photography to follow a career in design, which in turn brought him back to photography. However it wasn’t until his mid-thirties that he picked up a rangefinder style camera and was introduced to street photography.
His street work is gritty, personal and often dark and detached. His portrait work shows a deep connection, understanding and respect of his subjects, whether they be famous or homeless.
His photography takes him all over the world, shooting both professionally and for recreation.
His street work has been published internationally and his portrait work has allowed him to shoot many famous faces including HRH Prince of Wales.
Stephen founded The Leica Meet in August 2013 along with Gavin Mills and Olaf Willoughby and the group now boasts over 8000 international members and operates world wide.

Please come along to the nights, as they will be a great start to to a packed programme for 2016-2017
