Using creativity in a 'Real World'

Free Radicals is a creative teaching studio promoting and cultivating a culture of openness, trust, fearlessness, genuine questioning and self expression.

We believe creativity is natural and one place individuals can take risks, think through and evolve ideas and utimately make important personal changes.

We also believe seeing and engaging with nature and her natural cycles is the key to a health relationship with our family, neighbors, friends, and the wider physical world

It's our priority to maintain a realistic view of career paths and trajectories for creatives fending for themselves. We can really help form pactical plans and set realistic goals that are 'real life proof'.


Our range of beginner and advanced classes, courses and tutorials offer an increased awareness of hand-eye and intellectual processes, bring confidence in editorial, theme and practical skills and develop personla critical languages.


We want to empower and support all people to grow and discover themselves through their own, thinking, ideas, work and 'real world' public activity.

FreeRadicals patient, reassuring disposition and insightful nature combined with high levels of expertise allowed me to finally grasp the elusive words and put them on page. This was an invaluable part in the writing process. Working with Andy helped transform my writing to reach levels I could not have achieved on my own.

Andy is genuinely one of the most thoughtful and sincere artists that I know. His abilities in film, photography and writing are formidable and are matched by a keen intellect that isn't afraid to question convention.

This critical dialogue helped me to find a focus in my work. Freeradicals surpasses other online learning I've tried by providing hard to find 'personal' advice, feedback and genuine understanding. I think this will really help me and others trying to establish themselves as creatives.

Andy has a mature intellectual demeanour…and is a talented artist. But underlying his work is a conscientious rigour. Always questioning the rational behind creativity and the value society places on cultural activities.

Andy’s tutorship helped me to develop my craft as a filmmaker. His advice is very considered and always struck a good balance between developing the technical and conceptual aspects of filmmaking. He has a great way of weaving his wisdom and knowledge from many different areas of his expertise and applying them to your individual needs.

Andy has the necessary temperament to ensure that a (one-to-one) tutorial nurtures critical reflection whilst simultaneously providing support and encouragement. He has high levels of knowledge and expertise of the current debates, trends, issues and contexts relating to fine art film and photography.
