Marc Newton Teacher 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. 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:

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