It’s a perfect moment – a sunny London and the kids are running across South Bank and smiling while your husband fake-chases them. Behind all of this is the big ben and a beautiful, unforgettable sky. And in your mind, only one thought “I really wish I had taken that photography course (and that I could take the perfect picture of this perfect moment”.Unfortunately, you didn’t. Or you did, but the class wasn’t the best one. Or you didn’t because this moment has still not happened to you. But it will soon. And we think you should be prepared with the 3 best photography and film schools in London! 1. ExposureworksGyörgy László trained in 35mm and 16mm filmmaking at Famu in Prague before going on to learn from some of the best teachers all over the world.

Steve Hedges PhotographySteve has been a photographer for over 25 years and has shot a huge variety of subjects, including landscape and nature (for which he is well renowned). Steve was shortlisted in the 2011, 2014 and 2015 Outdoor photographer of the year competitions and in the British Wildlife photographer of the year competition.In Steve’s own words: “I find it immensely rewarding helping people to reach their full potential as a photographer. One of the great things about photography is that you are constantly learning new things as technology changes and you improve your understanding of the art. I find that I still have a hunger to learn new techniques and always to improve as a photographer. I believe this keeps my approach to teaching photography fresh and up-to-date. All of my courses are conducted in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. I find that my students get on really well together sharing information, techniques and tips about camera equipment, in fact many have gone on to become good photography “buddies” which is I think a lovely bonus to attending one of our courses.”3.
