Anna Hawes is a fine art photographer specialising in landscape and infrared photography. She lives by the sea in Portsmouth, England. When she is not taking photographs, Anna spends her time teaching film making, art and photography to an awesome bunch of college students. The relationship between creativity and technology is something that has long fascinated Anna and she finds being able to explore this relationship on a daily basis with her students to be one of the best things about teaching. She really enjoys working with them to generate new and exciting ideas and develop their creative autonomy.

She completed her PGCE in Post-Compulsory Art and Design, specialising in Digital and Media Arts at Northbrook College, Sussex in 2011. She graduated with First Class Honours from a degree in Digital Screen Arts at the University for the Creative Arts in Farnham, Surrey in July 2009. This challenging but rewarding experience allowed her to explore experimental and traditional approaches to the production of artworks for cinemas and galleries, through cutting-edge technologies within a critical, contextual framework.
