“Have really been influenced and helped by the knowledge and professional guidance from you both”
The quality of our tuition - we supply experienced and qualified tuition... oftentimes 2 tutors present
Our wide range of courses which progress you from a complete beginner to the more advanced and RPS.
We offer courses available throughout the year - not just during term times
Student numbers are kept small to provide the most attention and so we never cancel a course you’ve booked due to lack of numbers
Our premises - the South West Photography School is centrally based in Cornwall a couple of miles from the main A30 near Bodmin. We offer you a warm welcome with flexible spacious studio/workshop area for practical exercises, comfortable seating and a purpose-built, illuminated display wall for exhibiting prints for critique. We have good disabled facilities including a flat entrance, toilet and free parking on site. Wifi is also available. And, most importantly, our kettle is always on!
Individual bespoke teaching - we go out of our way to arrange times which suit you and tailor the course content to what you want to learn
Extensive Student Support - we supply the usual course resources in the form of printed information handouts but we also offer Moodle. The Moodle is an Internet facility available exclusively to our students where they can access and download further resources as well as being able to upload their own images and have online discussions with their fellow course members.
We have photographic equipment for you to try such as cameras, tripods and so on to help you decide on your particular requirements and preferences.
You will be supporting a local Cornish business. Graham and I are both local, Cornish entrepreneurs, running the South West Photography School as business partners, supporting other local suppliers and not being subsidised by the Government which means you won’t have to fill out a pile of forms like other adult education courses.
We are genuinely interested in you and improving your photography - we are both photographers and our enthusiasm is only constantly strengthened by watching the success of all our students. We hope you’ll be our next.
