“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

This review is going to sound like I’m getting paid. I am not. After completing the Photography and Lightroom course at TSOP my ability to frame, shoot and process my photos took a leap forward. Very good videos with easily digestible lessons and tasks. I wish I had found this course several years ago. I’ve gotten excited about photography again. I would recommend this course to anyone.” – David Hewett – USA

"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

“I have tried a number of others in the past, but I find TSOP suits me best. Their lessons are clear and easy to follow with well-made videos backed up with downloadable notes, plus quizzes to ensure the info has been understood correctly.” – Heather Sheldrick – UK

Marc Newton Teacher at The School of Photography

Who leads your education?

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 20 years of experience in teaching photography, rest assured you're in the best possible hands.
