Ten Shots exhibition: 3rd Sept-21st Oct

Ten Shots are a collective of photographers based on Portland. Inspired by their immediate surroundings they use photographic styles and techniques to respond to the often forgotten and less commercial aspects of their surroundings.

This exhibition was curated from a new body of work. The aim was to provide a unique glimpse into Portland’s wonderful community and the breath-taking scenery of the island that sits right in the centre of Dorset’s Jurassic Coast.

Ten Shots work is available for purchase.

Ten Shots are; Dave Warren, Georgina Bolt, Izzy Crosby, James Buckley, Molly Scarborough, Rachel Dunford, Sarah Colwell.

Ten Shots currently has vacancies for new members who are interested in working collaboratively with the group to develop their photography skills and promote their work to a wider audience.

b-side & Ten Shots

In July 2017, b-side hosted a series of artist led workshops with photographer Brendan Buesnel. A call was put out to the community of Portland to anyone who was interested in Photography and wanted to be part of the workshops to develop their skills and knowledge within the medium. This resulted in an exhibition which was held at b-side's headquarters, Outpost on Portland. 

After the exhibition the group felt such momentum and support in working as a collective they formed a group called Ten Shots. The group have gone on to organise two other exhibitions working with photographer Pete Millson and Bridport Arts Centre. They are now showing new work as part of b-side festival 2018 in White Stones Portland.
