Meet your lecturers

Mark Leary,
Photography Programme Lead,

Mark Leary is an award-winning film maker and photographer.

Mark joined the College in 2019 in his first full-time lecturing role. He previously served as a guest lecturer at various universities, including Arts University Bournemouth and Plymouth College of Art.

A contemporary artist, Mark is an observer of the everyday – capturing the minutiae of life and translating it into moments of magic. His imagery holds a strong narrative which the audience identifies with – whether it is a mundane detail, panoramic landscape or the raw honesty of his portraiture.

With his unique colour palette and beautiful lighting, Mark creates a familiar – almost nostalgic – feeling to his work whilst pertaining relevance to a modern, stylised aesthetic. His work has been described as dreamlike and displaying a magical quality whilst conveying universal concepts of wonder, adventure, exploration and mindfulness. Read more...

Samantha O'Neill,
Lecturer in Photography,

Samantha O'Neill is known as Samantha Horn in her professional career as an Artist. Samantha has two first class degrees, a BA in Photography and a Masters in Fine Art. Her former career in Costume Design for film and television culminated with her winning an Emmy in 2006 but more importantly has allowed her concerns within the mediums of photography, film and costume to evolve in an enquiring and exploratory manner. Her work, primarily created through the use of photography, is concerned with 'cultural identity' and notions of 'belonging' found within narratives of European 'portrayal'. Samantha practices both digital and analog including 10x8 camera photography.
