"The school of photography is great, I’d highly recommend anyone looking to learn and understand photography to sign up. 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.” - 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 for opening my eyes to a different world.” - Michael Stearn, UK

Marc Newton Teacher at The School of Photography

About your teacher

Hi, I’m Marc Newton and I run the team here. I’m a photographer, 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. I found the process of teaching filled me with a real sense of joy, and it 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 this beautiful craft to people all over the world.

My qualifications are as follows:

With more than 17 years' experience in teaching photography, rest assured you're in the best possible hands.
