Welcome to The Bedfordshire School of Photography
Since 2014 we've made it our mission to put creativity at the forefront of what we do. Whether you're completely new to photography or have some experience we have a complete roster of courses available that not only allow you to gain new skills but also meet like-minded individuals from all ages and backgrounds and discover your new passion.
What makes our courses unique? Many adult learning courses still place too much of a focus on essay writing, sketchbook work and research. Our goal is to provide courses that are a real alternative to what is currently out there. You'll be taking photos right from your very first lesson.
Although we're based in Bedford, Bedfordshire. our students join us from surrounding areas such as Dunstable, Luton, Ampthill, Leighton Buzzard, Woburn, Sandy, Kempston, Cranfield. Marston Moreteyne and Milton Keynes.
'At first, I was hesitant to enroll onto the first course as I believed I was more suited to Course 2. I was advised to come and check out Course 1 and soon realised that I didn't fully understand as much as I thought I did. I completed the full 15 weeks of course 1 and had such a positive time learning with everyone that I then also enrolled onto course 2.
I can't emphasize enough just how useful these courses have been in advancing my understanding of photography, both from a compositional point of view and on a technical level.
- Janet Jones
