Last weekend I got both my highlighters and my notepad out and I went back to school.
I honestly woke up on Saturday morning SO excited to get ready and to head to London School of Photography for their Level 1 course. Sunday too.
My weekend with LSP has sparked a new love for photography and after completing the course, I’m ready to experiment, to take my new knowledge out on some adventures and to take my photography to the next level.
Though I work full time in content creation, everything I know has been self taught or rubbed off onto me by legends I’ve hung out with over the years. I never studied photography or video and I was never taught the basics.
This had meant that, though I knew my way around a camera and didn’t shoot in auto, there were most definitely gaps in my knowledge.
It’s not unusual now that I do commissioned photography work and I’m getting some awesome respect for the images I take. So I figured it was about time I cemented my knowledge behind the lens and filled in the gaps. This Level 1 course did exactly that and I couldn’t recommend it enough.
London School of Photography is right in the centre of London, a 2 minute walk from Holborn Underground station (Central line). The school is in a beautiful house with multiple classrooms. Whilst I was there doing my Level 1 Photography course, there was another classroom occupied with a wedding photography course. It’s a lovely venue!
If you answered yes to one or more of the above, this course could be a wonderful choice for you. It honestly takes you right back to the start and comprehensively goes through everything from how a camera works to how to create those dreamy shots with all the settings present on your camera.
There’s no question too silly and with the small class sizes you can guarantee all the one-on-one time you need to solifidy your skills before completing the course.
If you’re a complete beginner, Level 1 starts right at the beginning so will be the perfect first step for you.
If you’re a bit more advanced, there’s Level 2 (I’m going to take this next) but there’s also a whole array of courses for you to choose from. If you know your basics and would like to specialise in, say, wedding photography… London School of Photography can cater for you too.
