We have a range of Photography courses in London at all levels.

There are full time, part time and evening programmes leading to a qualification, as well as photography workshops and specialist short courses in digital photography, studio lighting, darkroom and alternative processes. Short digital and darkroom classes are suitable for beginners, but there are advanced and masterclass photography workshops as well.

Our tutors are highly experienced photography practitioners offering a unique insight into the photographic medium.

We are well resourced both in digital and analogue (traditional film) photography. Our studio has Elinchrom studio flash, Hi-Glide lighting support, radio triggers and meters.

The photography digital suite has Apple Mac computers (running Photoshop), Eizo colour managed monitors and film scanners.

The photography darkroom has enlargers for 35mm and medium format film and printing on resin coated as well as fibre papers, film processing and film scanners all in the same facility.

Students from our courses regularly go on to higher education or become working freelance photographers, an achievement indeed in a very competitive environment. If you are interested in anything photographic, we may have the course for you.

Course Overview

Learn the basics of using a DSLR camera and get to understand the menus, exposure modes, and accessories. Taught in our well-equipped photography studio and on location, our Digital SLR photography course for beginners will put you in control of your equipment and open up new horizons for you. The aim is to get you comfortably photographing a variety of situations and scenarios, and all without relying on the ‘auto’ mode! The course tutor will set weekly projects for you to develop skills learned in practice sessions and workshops. Students will present their weekly photos to the class and gain valuable critical feedback. Students will need to own their own DSLR camera allowing access to manual controls.
