Photography Training

Sep 29 2011

It doesn’t matter how long you’ve worked in this business there’s always something new to learn.

As I write this I’m traveling back across London on my way from a full day training course with photographer Ray Lowe.

Ray has been working as a professional photography since before I was born so I’d be a fool not to jump at the chance to learn from him.

Photography and education

Sep 22 2011

A few weeks ago my brother in law received his highers results (Scottish A levels) via email at about 1am in the morning.

Now he looking to take the next step in his education and this got me thinking about photography degree courses.


I graduated from my photography degree over 10 years ago, having just missed out on a free higher education by 12 months. Back then University fees were greeted with distain but very little rioting. After all, we were only looking at spending and extra £1000 a year which in retrospect was a fair amount to pay.

Next year with fees rising by up to 300% maybe we’ll see a change in what courses students (and their parents) are investing in.


This summer saw over 5000 students graduated from degree courses in the UK with the term photography or photo imaging in the title.

The main function, I’m guessing your realise, is to take the photo itself but this is actually the 2nd job it does after you press it.
