Meet the team
Platform3 has been set up to provide a photographic resource centre for photographers and creatives working at all levels and in a variety of photographic styles and media.
Our aim is to assist those who are starting in photography to learn the craft and to provide more experienced photographers and creatives with a place which they can utilise for their projects or work. Platform3 was created by photographers for photographers and creatives alike- If you love photography like we love photography then we hope to meet you sometime.
