Above: It’s now the second year we have run our Freshers Photo Treasure Hunt around Cheltenham and thankfully this year the day has turned out to be sunny and warm unlike last year!

Above are the winning team titled Arbus and a selection of their images and some of those created by other teams.

Above: The first afternoon of the first day of Freshers week saw some of our 2014 graduates return to share their experiences of the course and show their work to our new first years. Thanks to Liam Clarke, Ben Breading, Kasia Fiszer, Tom Hill and Veni Petrov for giving us their time. 

A big thanks also to second year Elliott Gunn and third years Abbie Stewart and Emma Boyns for also coming along and joining in with the event.

Above: A powerful series of images created by second year Laura Woodrow.

I recently shot this series at the South West Tough Mudder Event. Tough Mudder is an international event, described as a ‘hardcore 10-12 mile obstacle race, designed by British Special Forces to challenge the toughest of the tough. I was amazed by the exciting atmosphere and wanted to capture this within my images, highlighting the determination and camaraderie of the competitors”.
