Staff profile

Rich Johnson

Technical Advisor - Media Loan Hub


Markeaton Street, Derby Campus



My technical background is in photography, both traditional and digital. For the most part, I am trouble-shooting any issues that come to the counter in the Media Loan HUB. This ranges from the use of the Connect2 software to the functionality of video cameras and specific hardware such as tripods.

I also manage some of the repair logistics and the research and procurement of new equipment.

Teaching responsibilities

I run some inductions into certain camera systems but the majority of teaching I engage with is how to use the booking software Connect2.

Professional interests

Anyone who has come to the counter last thing on a Friday knows I am reliant on music to get me through the busy shifts.

I also am keen on reducing my impact on the environment and watch out for encouraging news stories highlighting the efforts made by people all over the world to research our connection with our world. I am also interested in how strengthening this connection can positively affect ones state of mind.
