How It Works

Online Photography Courses

Welcome to MyPhotoSchool.  Our online photography courses offer excellent value for money, as we are the first and only on-line photography school to offer a classroom learning experience from the comfort of your own home.  You get exactly the same photography classes delivered via the web, as you would if you were sitting in the classroom.  You can listen to your tutor, ask them questions via MyClassRoom and even chat to your fellow classmates online. We’ve gathered together some of the world’s top photography experts, to bring you a fantastic opportunity to learn from people you’d never normally get access to. Over the coming months and years we’ll be adding new courses on a regular basis, from Travel to Wildlife, Wedding to Macro; in fact if you think of a course we haven’t yet included please send us your suggestions.  Join us on one of our MyPhotoSchool courses and become the photographer you have always wished to be.

Every Saturday morning you will wake to find a new video tutorial waiting for you. These can be viewed whenever and wherever you want…and as many times as you want. If you have a mobile phone* you will be able to watch and listen while on the move. Alternatively you will be able to view your tutorials via your home computer. If you are interrupted during your lecture, you can pause the video, if you miss important information or need further clarification, you can rewind, and play it again. In MyClassRoom is that you can store your videos and revisit them at your leisure**… Even after the course has finished.

Accompanying every lecture is a transcript of the course set out in full colour, which is downloadable and yours to keep and print off.   At the end of these notes you will find your assignment giving you instructions on what you are encouraged to complete and upload as homework for marking by your tutor.

Each week after your lecture, you can download your student notes and complete your assignment for that week. This varies depending on the type of course, but mainly comprises of a photography project based on that weeks tutorial and  it is suggested that you upload three of your best images from the shoot, for comment and feedback from your tutor.  You upload these to MyClassRoom so your tutor can give you personal feedback and you will also be able to view your fellow students work and comment and encourage each other.
