One to One Vocational Training

Vocational & In House Training for Businesses

In House Training

In recent years, PCL has increasingly been asked to deliver tuition to individuals and teams within businesses ranging from SMEs to large corporations, like Disney.

This demand is only increasing as social media begins to mature, product life cycles continue to shorten, and the volume and variety of marketing communications proliferate in line with improved data and media fragmentation.

To remain competitive, marketing departments have to almost be run as mini-publishing houses, with a constant stream social media content, professional employee headshots, exciting event imagery, product photography, and more…not to mention the Photoshop requirements that arise on almost a daily basis.

With this increased demand for businesses to put out quality media which both promotes their products and strengthens their brand, it’s becoming less and less practical to rely on the old outsourcing model – calling your agency or freelancers every time you have a requirement. Equally, it makes little sense to employ photographers and Photoshop specialists full-time.

This is why we developed In-House Photography Training, which is designed for businesses that have a requirement for high-quality imagery but, want to increase creative control whilst reducing the turnaround times and costs of outsourcing this increasingly frequent and important work.

In-House Photography Training very quickly arms your employees with the skills they need to take the highest quality photographs and use Photoshop like a pro.

The course is designed to fit around your particular business requirements and can be run on-site or at our studio over the course of a full day, or split into smaller bite-sized chunks. We also offer bespoke training and advanced supplemental courses for those that have specific requirements.

Previous clients of ours, such as Getty Images, have found this training to be a valuable investment which has contributed hugely to reducing costs and turnaround time executing their ideas. Furthermore, by giving employees the skills they need to execute their creative ideas, we have found that the quality and originality of the imagery these clients are producing has also improved, due to the more integrated nature of the creative process from idea to execution.

With our In-House Photography Training, we are focused on supporting businesses give their employees the skills they need to meet the challenge of the content-economy – empowering them to execute high-quality imagery, whilst reducing costs and turnaround time.

Increase creative control. Reduce turnaround time. Minimise outsourcing costs.

'I cannot fault Photography Course London, from my first email to them through to my One To One tuition, I cannot speak highly enough of them. I’ve previously tried one other course in London (Covent Garden) but everything about Photography Course London was is a class apart. I can’t wait to go back for the next part of my course.’
★★★★★  Nathan Barnes.'

'It was a very professional yet friendly and informal day. Well paced for a range of people, good detail without getting 'over technical'.’

One to One Portfolio Review

One to One Portfolio Review

Suggested topics

A very important part of professional development is getting your portfolio reviewed. Consulting a friend or a colleague might not give you the all important critical and honest feedback.
Sequencing and layout is key to a good portfolio and it is always good to have it reviewed by a new pair of eyes.

Photography Course London gives you the opportunity to get input on your work, portfolio, website or projects from a variety of professionals with different backgrounds.

‘I found the one-to-one to be interesting and enlightening. My photos are now being filed in a way more manageable manner and I now feel more confident with the mechanics of the camera. 4 Hours passed by very quickly and I feel that I learnt a lot!’

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

‘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

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.
★★★★★  Rachel Marsh

‘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!’
