Course description

Professional Photography

Master the creative techniques that will enable you to take stunning photographs. Learn the camera skills used by professional photographers in the commercial world.

Photography courses are a great way for photographers to learn creatively. Our digital photography workshops are particularly beneficial for introductory-level students who want to start developing the techniques used professionally by photographers in the commercial arena.

The course offers you the opportunity to learn new skills by working with a professional photographer at our London studios. You'll radically improve your photography through a mixture of theory and hands-on practice. The course will help you to make the best possible technical use of your digital camera and master the photography techniques that separate amateurs from professionals.

By the end of the course, you will be technically proficient with your digital camera and have the confidence and technical ability to take stunning photographs - you'll also gain an insight into the next steps of gaining skills on professionally processing your images.

This is one of our most popular courses for creatives and also those with an interest in working professionally in the photographic arts.

Please bring along your camera with you on the day if you have one. You need no previous photography experience to attend this course.
