"I’m loving the course and have learned more in the first few lessons than I have in the past 10 years trying to learn from poor quality YouTube videos. The easy & clear way you deliver the lessons makes learning a real pleasure & so much easier to retain in my memory." – Les Thomson, UK

"The school of photography is great and I’d highly recommend anyone looking to learn and understand photography to sign up. The videos are laid out brilliantly and Marc really knows how to simplify and break everything down so its easily absorbed. I signed up for both the photography and the Lightroom course and I’m enjoying every bit of it." - Mark Jenny, Australia

“Excellent! As a self-taught amateur photographer, I had what I thought was a good knowledge of ISO, Shutter speed, F stops, etc. However, this course filled in the inevitable gaps that a less formal education will leave. This is no doubt the best investment I have made in photography. Marc not only explains the principles of photography very clearly, he also shows you the application of that knowledge. I have already seen great improvement in my photos. I recommend this course without reservations. You will be the better for it. Thanks Marc.” - Francis Moine, USA

“The school of photography far exceeded my expectations. Marc has a way of teaching that makes it easy to understand and put into practice. I now find that I totally look at subjects in a different way and know how to apply the knowledge gained to express what I am trying to achieve. Thank you Marc for opening my eyes to a different world.” - Michael Stearn, UK

Marc Newton Teacher of Photography

About your teacher

Hi, I’m Marc Newton and I run the team here. I’m an educational speaker, author and teacher of photography.

Teaching Photography has been my passion for many years. I got my first paid photography job in 1997 whilst doing my photography degree, but in 2002 I decided to give teaching a go and I haven’t looked back since. I loved seeing the stunning imagery my students produced. It filled me with a real sense of joy, and still does today.

I wanted to take all of this teaching experience and offer it up to a wider audience, so in 2012 I started The School of Photography and now I teach people all over the world this beautiful craft.

My qualifications are as follows:

Rest assured that you’re in good hands!
