We can also assist those wishing to turn professional.... showing where the money is in professional photography. We also run SCHOOL HOLIDAY courses and offer student discounts.

Our Instructors

All our instructors are either current, or have been, full time professional photographers with at least 20 years experience. Our chief instructor, Ian Turley has over 40 years professional photography experience, including over 1000 weddings, over 4000 model shoots, as well as sports photography & commercial photography. We believes that although there are many kinds of photography, the best kind of photography is when you capture a moment in time that can never be repeated. As the great photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson once said "Photography is the simultaneous recognition, in a fraction of a second, of the significance of an event".
