‘I’ve just completed the foundation course and I thought it was brilliant. I got a lot of things cleared up that I’ve been confused about and I’ve learnt things I never knew at all. It’s got a good mix of theory and practical too. I’ll be going back for more courses.’
★★★★★ Kim Burrows
Took the Studio Lighting Course with Bill Ling the other day and it was fantastic! I’d never shot in a studio before, but I came out with a good understanding of how to control light in a studio environment. Took a few great snaps as well! Highly recommended! Being at Holborn Studios was incredible!
★★★★★ Michael Wright
Totally loved the course, and now feel confident and equipped for adventures in photography! Very well-taught, pacy course. The time flew and I learned so much. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to anyone and am hoping I can come back soon for more advanced courses.

‘I took the Photoshop Foundation Level 1 with tutor Mikael Eliasson and have really enjoyed it. It was a phenomenal introductory into Photoshop for me as a beginner. I hope to be able to take with you some other courses in the near future.’
★★★★★ Max Blau
‘I recently attended a 1 on 1 with Gary on the camera followed by a day with Mikael for Lightroom. I found both days to be interesting and “enlightening”. 4 Hours passed by very quickly and I feel that I learnt a lot!’

Private photography training is a great alternative to a course if you want to learn specific subjects, or perhaps you can't fit a course around your schedule. Taking a private lesson is the most efficient way of learning and in many ways more beneficial than a course as the student is allowed to work at their own pace and decide on the content. You can specify what parts of DSLR Photography or Photoshop you would like to learn or we can propose a private course based on your prior knowledge and level. We also offer classes in Studio Lighting, Adobe Lightroom, Web Design, Darkroom, DSLR Video and Video Editing.
