BUDDING college snappers and artists are showcasing a selection of their work for members of the public to admire tonight.

Students from Cleveland College of Art and Design in Hartlepool are hosting an exhibition of their talents ahead of a display they are taking to London this summer.

As part of tomorrow’s display, at the college in Church Square, onlookers will also be given the chance to purchase the work at a ‘print auction’ to raise funds for the students’ exhibition called Black Light in the capital in June.

The work will be displayed at the college from 6pm until 9pm.

Budding models will also be given the chance to have their photograph taken by the student snappers, and there will also be a photo booth with props for people to get fun shots taken of themselves.

A spokeswoman for the college said: “Visitors will be able to choose from a variety of styles, including local landscapes, fine art and portraits, and they will be able to bid on their favourite photographic prints.

“There will an opportunity for guests to take part in their own fashion photo shoot by college photographers - as part of a silent auction - and would be perfect for people wanting to pursue a career in modelling or would make a great gift.

“As part of the event, student photographers will also be on hand with their own ‘photo booth’ to capture images of people with a series of props!”

Jack Boothby, a third-year photography student, is helping to organise the auction and the exhibition in London, alongside fellow students Luke Anderson and Dominic Graham.
