Faye’s area of expertise is traditional film photography and darkroom printing & she is currently a resident at The Island Studios, Bristol.
She became passionate about working with Young People when she started working for a local Youth Club coaching sessions and then going on to become an ambassador for a local charity which is very close to her heart.
This inspired a real passion for working with Young People so Chantelle travelled to South Africa to volunteer for 3 months as part of the International Citizen Service programme (ICS). Her experience of ICS helped to develop her confidence & skills so once the opportunity to become a Youth Worker with Young Bristol arose she felt it was too good of a chance for her to miss.
She joined the team with a degree in English Literature from the University of Liverpool and two years experience working in PR and Marketing agencies in the North West of England.
