About The School of Photography

At TSoP we deliver high-quality photography courses online, in person, in books and are a leading provider of photography education to schools and colleges in the UK.

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.

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 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.

I graduated with an honours degree in Photography in 2000 and over the years I’ve worked for many clients, turning my hand to many genres. I’ve exhibited much of my Art around the world and have had my work published in many national papers and magazines and I’m now fortunate enough to be able to take on commissions that interest me and complete my own personal work due this passion of teaching photography.

My qualifications are as follows:

Rest assured that you’re in good hands!
