Herbert: photographer

Herbert is a photographer who has had his work exhibited all over the country. Leaving school at 16, he trained as bricklayer before returning as an adult to college where his dyslexia was identified for the first time. FE helped him to see this as an advantage in the creative field he wanted to pursue.


In further education you’ve got the freedom to be yourself, to experiment with your work. There’s no labelling there. With further education, what I’ve made is another path for myself.

You can watch a video of Herbert talking about his experiences below.
