Learning Photography is a fulfilling activity. From understanding the basics of your camera’s functionality to explore, view and present your world in a new way or building a whole new exciting career; Sutton College has a course that will help you to achieve this.
Sutton College’s Photography Department is built on feedback from learners who want to enjoy their cameras; produce lasting, tangible memories or join an industry where there is a high demand for skilled photographers.
There is a fully equipped photographic studio based in the heart of Sutton where there are a number of courses taught throughout the year, weekdays, morning, afternoon, evening, on Saturday mornings and online.
There are a range of courses available for hobbyists, beginners, career and advanced photographers. Most courses include Adobe Lightroom as a module. Learners* benefit from free access to Adobe Creative Cloud for the duration of their course and have the ability to purchase an additional 6 months access at a much reduced rate.
Our expert photography teachers are award winning individuals with years of teaching and industry experience. Their flair, and creativity is infectious, and learners are able to soak this in and achieve personal goals.
Courses typically start termly starting with the accredited courses in September at levels 1, 2 and 3 as well as the popular Beginners Course. Some courses have fast track options for those who are faster learners or have less time available. We then offer a selection of targeted workshops starting with Weddings and Adobe Lightroom, and other specialist courses such as Street Photography and courses on specific locations.
Learners and former learners are offered enrichment opportunities throughout the year working with charities, businesses, and media to hone skills, build confidence and experience whilst enhancing portfolios. Much of the teaching and learning is carried out on location, capitalising on different events from the UK events calendar or by invitation.
At whatever stage you start with our Photography Department there is something else for you to move on to as we introduce new programmes throughout the year.
