Dear students past and present,
2015 was a wonderful year for us at DSLR Photography Courses and 2016 will be even better!
We are proud to be a humble collective of creatives that started with founding members web designer Roland Pokrywka and photographers Jason Pierce-Williams and Agnieszka Williams. Over the years, cinematographer and photographer György László later joined us, and photographer Katerina Iacovides became another welcomed team member.
2015 saw the addition of photographer Edo Zollo. Originally from Italy, Edo chose to make London his home and centre of his creativity 14 years ago. Photography was a part of his childhood and he has many fond memories carrying his dad’s camera bag and helping him load film on shoots. Edo’s personal work centres around the emotion and drama of street photography. His patience and temperament often pay off to capture sensational natural moments. With tearsheets that include features for The Guardian and The Daily Mail, his industry knowledge is invaluable.
For more information about Edo, please visit his website.
Studio Coordinator Luke Das is a more recent arrival to the team. His background in performing arts photography means he is often surrounded by passionate and motivated individuals. Luke’s work features some of the top young performers from the London area and he is proud to consider many of them as treasured colleagues and friends. At DSLR Photography Courses, Luke will assist with the running of the courses and encourage the growth of our photographic community.
