Creative, Inspiring, Enjoyable

We’ve already helped over 14,950 of photography enthusiasts, and here’s what some of them had to say!

London photography courses satisfied students

“My partner and I had a private photography tuition session with Roland which was honestly brilliant. We arrived with very limited knowledge (typical ‘all the gear and no idea’) and learnt an incredible amount through theory and practice.

Roland was very knowledgable and passionate about teaching us as much as possible (from best practices to answering all of our questions).

We are very grateful for Roland’s help which we found invaluable. Worth every penny. Thank you Roland!”


“I had a one-to-one session with Roland and learned more in 3 hours than I had managed to teach myself in 3 years! Roland was friendly, extremely patient and did not think any question was too silly (which, given my lack of knowledge, turned out to be A Good Thing), so I felt relaxed and able to ask him anything. I came away from the lesson feeling much more confident. He has emailed me a PDF of the lesson and some more information which is super helpful. I am going to practise at home for a while, before booking another session to take my knowledge further.”


Our company booked a photography session with Roland and I honestly couldn't recommend him enough. Being a complete novice I had a DSLR camera I would set on auto, point and shoot.
Roland teaching was clear, concise and he allowed us to learn by "doing", physically allowing us to see how different settings had different effects on the image and allowing us to understand what we needed to change to get the perfect shot.
If I could give more stars I would and I'll definitely be booking their next course soon!”
