Richard Jeffery is a freelance commercial photographer and artist based in Swanage, Dorset. Richard has over 15 years teaching experience in FE and private sectors, and also runs art and disability projects, usually with mental health and dementia groups. 

 Photography courses are usually digital, and range from absolute beginner to advanced professional and commercial techniques, including post production in Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom, but private work is often film based, using medium and large format cameras.

 His ceramic practice is based on hand-building techniques, and is increasingly sculptural rather than functional.
