A young photographer who hopes to follow in the footsteps of his celebrity-snapping uncle is among students from One whose impressive work is on display in Ipswich's busy Sailmakers Shopping Centre.
One has teamed up with the popular shopping centre for a photo exhibition which will showcase the talent of 16 students aged 16-19 years of age.
The exhibition gives the teenagers the opportunity to share their skills behind the lens with a wider audience while shoppers will be able to enjoy a wide variety of pictures, including spectacular images of the local landscape.
Among those whose work is being displayed at Sailmakers is 18-year-old Bilal Bounit whose uncle is fashion photographer David Titlow.
The London-based snapper, who is originally from Suffolk, has worked for some of the biggest magazines in the country and shot stars including Ed Sheeran, Damon Albarn and Bill Nighy.
Bilal, who lives in Framlingham, said: "I've been into photography for about two years. It started when I went to help out my uncle on a photo shoot he was doing for with Ed Sheeran and it was amazing. After that I knew I wanted to do something with photography. Fashion photography is certainly an option. My uncle is an inspiration and I would love to follow in his footsteps."
Bilal added: "I took three shots of buildings in Ipswich with an abstract background. The structures are then flipped on to one another. There's quite a lot of manipulation. I like trying out things. This is the first time I've had anything on display and it's nice to see something come out from my work and progress."
Emilie Ince, from Sudbury, is another student who is thrilled to have her work showcased and she is also considering a career in fashion photography.
She said: "I've grown an interest in fashion recently with seeing different accounts on Instagram and photographs in Vogue and it's something I want to explore more before I decide whether to pursue fashion photography at university.
"My older sister studies photography and we enjoy taking pictures together which is nice. We help each other out.
"My interest was sparked when I did photography at GCSE level. It's quite exciting to have my work on display and gets me ready to display at university."
James Wise, 16, from Boxford, has a produced a picture for the exhibition inspired by his rural roots. He said: "The sun was setting and thought it'd make a great photo. It was taken in Boxford and it's a view I wake up to and see all the time but it's one of my favourite photographs."
James, who would like to be a film videographer in the future, added: "I've always loved cameras. As a family we used to do little films and You Tube videos.
"I like messing around with natural and artificial light. It's all trial and error and this is the first time I've had work on display and it's a nice opportunity."
Megan Fox, 17, from Needham, said: "My photo is of Ipswich waterfront. I'm very proud of it. It was the first time I'd done night photography using different settings.
"I like doing landscapes, sunsets and sunrises, and also close-ups. I'll photo anything that I find pretty really."
Jake Robson, director of curriculum said: "Our photography students express their imaginations and creativity through observations of the visual world. Our students are pursuing their own personal enquiry and expression through digital and dark room photography. They then enhance and manipulate these images through the use of industry standard computer programs.
"These images have been taken in and around Suffolk by AS and A level students and are the realisation of ideas that they have been developing and refining throughout the year. Many of our second year A level students have now moved on to start a new academic journey at university.
"The love of the subject shines through in the work of our students and each piece offers a unique perspective on the world around us.
"We hope you enjoy looking at the work as much as they enjoyed making it."
Mike Sorhaindo, Manager of Sailmakers Shopping Centre, said: "There is a lot of talent among the young people at the college and we're delighted to be able to showcase it at the Centre.
"It is good experience for them and I'm sure our customers will enjoy being able to see these wonderful; images as well."
