THE PHOTO ACADEMY in London joins as an e-commerce partner shop! Now you can use your money pot to either take or gift photography courses!

The adventure began back in 2008. Two photo enthusiasts met on a forum and wanted to share this precious art and craft, so they decided to promote photo classes. The project turned into a website, a magazine with advice, and classes with respected and committed photography teachers.

THE PHOTO ACADEMY grew with a team of over 100 teaching photographers, a presence in 22 cities, 9 countries.

Thanks to an array of practical and technical courses, we hope to pass along precious “know-how” so you can enjoy learning more about digital or film photography. We also offer an ample range of thematic courses (in the form of classes or workshops) involving some of the oldest types of photography, including historical and alternative techniques.

In our era of image based communications and with the multifaceted world of photography constantly evolving, we try to represent as many of the trends as possible and want our photographers to reflect that richness and diversity. That’s why our team is composed of women and men with different expertise and approaches that reflects the world of photography today.

THE PHOTO ACADEMY LONDON works with Simulacra Studio, set in the heart of London, the studio is an impressive space moments from local landmarks such as the famous Brixton Market. The building is converted from the former Brixton East Station dating back to the 1800’s and frequented by clients such as Ralph Lauren, Vivienne Westwood, Net A Porter, NME and Radio 4.

Run by photographers, this is a professional environment with many exceptional features including a luxurious make-up area with barber’s chair, vintage mirrors and Hollywood lighting, a prop and scenery construction workshop, client mezzanine and even a bar with pool table for a little after-shoot wind-down. It’s a studio that breathes creativity and technicality with a friendly attitude.
