Creative Photography

Our long running Creative Photography Course (previously known as 'London Creative Photography') is suitable for those who are relatively new to photography as well as more experienced photographers. The emphasis of the course is  more on creativity than technical instruction.

The active day includes a professional photographer led exploration of the rich architectural heritage surrounding the studios, a lecture on urban and cityscape photography and demonstrations of photographic techniques.

After lunch you will venture out on your own urban photo shoot to put what you've learned into practice. The afternoon session takes place back at Westland Place Studios where you will be able to review and discuss your images with your tutor and fellow photographers.

These activities will help you to develop your 'photographers eye', improve your technical skills and make you more critically aware of your image making. By the end of the day you will be more aware of your urban surroundings and better capable of creatively documenting the way you see the city.
