The usual progress for learning about photography starts with a camera course. Either our DSLR camera course if you have one of these cameras or our Beginners Photography course if you have a compact or other type of camera.. Then we would recommend the Composition course as this will help you to improve your photography through your visual skills. We would then recommend increasing your technical skills with learning about software and the obvious choice is our Lightroom course, further manipulation and study can then come with our Photoshop course.. You may have a specific interest area so we have a Portrait course. or perhaps you are interested in Travel Photography. When you are ready to fully engage with photography and make it important to what you do then the Intermediate Course will take you to the next level.


Our courses are held in our own studio or at the Oxford Brookes University. OSP is part of The Photographers Workshop which was established in 1982 to provide photographic services to the public and commercial clients.
