Photography courses in Central London are tricky to arrange, as it can be expensive place to work. However we are thrilled to be working with the lovely people at the Camera Museum and Cafe, run by Aperture Photographic – the world’s first Camerashop, Museum and Cafe (as far as anyone can tell).
Situated in Museum Street a few hundred yards from the British Museum, it gives us a fantastic location to photograph as well as the chance to drool over the Hasselblads in Aperture Photographic’s shop. They also do lovely food and great coffee. Have a look at the cafe website. It’s a great place to spend the day, and it’s easy to get to – the nearest tube is Holborn, 10 minutes away. We use a lot of second-hand equipment, and you can even take some of out recommendations and buy some kit in the shop.
You can try your hand at street photography, and we can photograph in the British Museum gardens, and intrepid snappers can even venture into the Museum itself. Have a look at Phil’s blog piece about photographing in the British Museum. They forbid the use of tripods, but if you know what you are doing, you can still get some good results! If you don’t, we can help. If you need a lens, you’re in the right place! Limited space limits us to small groups of no more than eight, which means that we are give more individual attention on our photography courses in central London. Camera Cafe is at 44 Museum Street, Bloomsbury, London WC1A 1LY, we meet at the entrance at 11am in the week, or 12 noon on Saturdays. We finish there between 5pm and 6pm.
