A Photography Teacher since 2002

I’m Marc Newton and I run the team here. I’m a photographer, 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. I found the process of teaching filled me with a real sense of joy, and it still does today.

My success in teaching led me to become an Advanced skills Teacher and I started to train UK school teachers to deliver the Photography GCSE and A-Level curriculum. 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 this beautiful craft to people all over the world.

I’ve exhibited much of my Art around the world and have had my work published in many national papers and magazines. I’m now fortunate enough to be able to take on commissions that interest me and complete my own personal projects due this great job of being a photography teacher.

My qualifications are as follows:

Rest assured, when it comes to learning photography, you’re in good hands!
