Welcome to BSOP – Bedfordshire School of Photography

Are you wondering why you should choose one of our courses at BSOP?
Smiling Man

Established in 2013 by Kam Assi, BSOP was born out of a passion to fill a gap in the market. Kam, with over 30 years of experience in the photography industry, noticed a lack of evening photography classes tailored for adults in Bedfordshire that truly focused on practical skills and understanding cameras.

Unlike other photography courses that primarily delved into theoretical aspects, BSOP stands out for its emphasis on hands-on learning. Kam's dual expertise in photography and education, backed by a PGCE teaching qualification, ensures that students receive the best of both worlds. With a curriculum designed to impart practical knowledge and an enjoyable learning experience, BSOP is dedicated to nurturing photographers of all levels.

What sets BSOP apart is Kam's unique teaching approach, honed over decades of professional experience. Students not only benefit from his vast knowledge but also from his ability to tailor teaching methods to individual needs. Moreover, BSOP prides itself on creating a supportive learning environment where students can thrive, regardless of their prior experience.

Our courses are designed to be inclusive and practical, catering to beginners and seasoned photographers alike. Whether you're looking to kickstart a career in photography, explore a new hobby, retired and now have the time to dedicate, or simply enhance your skills for personal enjoyment, BSOP has something for everyone.
