“ Creative, Inspiring, Enjoyable ”
We’ve already helped over 15,750 photography enthusiasts on our London courses,
here’s what some of them had to say
After two years of playing around with my camera it was great to attend this course and finally learn the techniques I needed to get the results I wanted. Highly recommended!
The beginners photography course that Jason ran was absolutely great. I learnt so much on the day! The content was really interesting and was backed up by great and fascinating practical examples.
In one day Jason turned what was purely theoretical to actual. The approach, teaching style and atmosphere worked for me 100%. Excellent value for money.
Thanks for a really informative and extremely helpful day. It clarified a lot of things I had read about but never understood how to make them work. The course was fun and flew past in a whizz!
I really enjoyed the beginners course and learnt everything I was hoping to learn. The instructor was excellent – incredibly knowledgeable and very enthusiastic. The session was varied and well-paced, with a range of activities which were really useful. Thank you!
The intensive course was really good value and I would recommend it to all taking their photography beyond snapping. Even if you know the basics, you will learn so much more! The methods of teaching were excellent – delivered in an easy to understand, informal style, and with great enthusiasm.

Three Best Photography Courses in London
DSLR Photography Courses London offers a wide range of courses, workshops and weekend classes for photographers of all experience levels and interests.
We divided our classes into three sections: Beginners, Intermediate and Specialised.
Beginners – we have three courses for beginners and amateur photographers, two studio-based and one outdoor.
The studio based are:
Beginners DSLR course – half-day (10.00am-2.00pm)
Intensive Beginners class – full-day (10.00am-5.00pm)
The Intensive Beginners Course is very comprehensive and our most popular.
During the first part of this class, we cover all the technical aspects of photography, lighting, and how to use a digital camera in fully manual mode M (the aperture, f-stop sequence, shutter speeds, ISO, metering and focusing). It is the same amount of material that we cover on the half-day introductory course.
From 2.00 pm to 5.00 pm, we explore more “intermediate” topics, problems in low light conditions, lenses and their use, composition and troubleshooting.
But what’s important – on the Intensive course we do a lot more of practical exercises, we look at composition, and try some of the principal creative techniques.
One of the most popular exercises is taking pictures of ‘exploding’ water balloons. To freeze the action – bursting balloon – we use fast shutter speeds. The same technique will be used to capture moving subjects, action at sporting events or in wildlife photography.
We also practice slow shutter speeds. Either to add a creative blur effect or to ‘paint’ with light, used in the night & low light photography (Milky Way, Northern lights).
Aperture and Depth of Field are essential topics. Participants will learn about the technical elements of the lens, the f-stops, bokeh effect. And practice how to use a shallow depth of field to blur the background in portraits, or to have everything sharp and in focus when taking pictures of landscapes.
All of our beginners photography courses in London are limited to 6 participants. This way we can assure that everyone will get some one-to-one time with the tutor, as well as personal tips.
During the Intensive day course, we practice in our studio (artificial light) and a nearby park (natural light).
Our outdoor London class is called – The Art of Travel Photography.
It is an all-day weekend photography workshop, from 10 am until 5 pm.
The content is similar to Beginners and Intensive courses. We cover the important aspects of photography and how to take pictures in manual mode (M), but it is a bit less technical and more practical than the other two.
In the Travel course, we’ve included a visit to the park (nature and flower photography), market and street photography, portraits, a walk along the Thames/Embankment and taking pictures of landscapes, as well as the city centre and architecture.
We also offer free camera and lenses hire for the duration of our photography courses in London. We have Nikon and Canon cameras available.
It’s an attractive option as you can test a camera and learn about all the essential functions before buying one.
