The London Institute of Photography strives to be the leading non-academic institution for photography training in the UK and offers students the exceptional opportunity to study under award-winning, professional photographers.
To become a truly great photographer you need to learn your craft in a realistic environment, in the studio and on location and not from a book or in a lecture hall. For students to find their voice, we put particular emphasis on their artistic development as well as the link between craft and creativity.
The London Institute of Photography is based in the Old Truman Brewery, the new creative hub and centre of the thriving art, fashion and advertising scene of London’s East End. It’s central location and excellent transport links makes studies at the London Institute of Photography a very convenient experience.
All our programmes and courses are taught in English and are open to international students from all over the world.
