Excellent! As a self-taught amateur photographer, I had what I thought was a good knowledge of ISO, Shutter speed, F stops, etc. However, these courses filled in the inevitable gaps that a less formal education will leave. This is no doubt the best investment I have ever 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 these courses without reservations. You will be the better for it. Thanks Marc.” - Francis Moine – USA

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!
