Photographer Richard Piper invites you to join him on a 'How To' bespoke photographic course, held in a fantastic open-air central London location.

Suitable for all levels, from novice to experienced, these individual and small-group one-to-one workshop classes are specifically tailored to your own personal needs and aspirations.

Covering both the technical and creative aspects of photography, the workshops offers first-hand friendly coaching, with clear practical demonstrations of the key ingredients for great successful photography. With plenty of time for practice and questions, the classes are the perfect opportunity for anyone wishing to take their photography to the next level.

The courses take place in central London, with the locations selected to best serve the needs of the day. Most take place along the River Thames Southbank, with the City of London Square Mile also being popular. Both of these areas offer a wealth of activity, colour and culture, with endless photographic opportunities whatever the weather.

An established professional photographer and successful freelance film-maker, Richard's wealth of experience and knowledge will help you advance your photography skills and your understanding of what makes great images.

Why not buy as a gift, or treat yourself.

I had a wonderful day with Richard. Did not know what to expect but it was a lot more than I could possibly expect. He is patient, helpful and completely at ease with people like me who are impatient and forgetful. He covered all the basics and with his font of knowledge covered every aspect of my queries about the technical usage of the camera.
His attitude is comfortable and had an answer for my shortcomings, which was wonderful.

I recommend Richard to anyone who is serious about improving any angle to their photography.

He insisted on helping me even after the course, through email and supporting me in consolidating what he had told me. That shows you what a wonderful tutor he is.

It was an excellent value for money and as I said I recommend him to any one in need of improvement.


Exceptional value, whether its creativity, technical or just getting better organised, all tuition was given to help make better, more professional pictures.


Very enjoyable, I walked away from the course feeling fully prepared and energised to apply all the advice given. I was very impressed by Richard, not only about the techniques, but also the tools and how best to use them. I particularly liked his flexibility in getting his message over, we were a mixed ability group and he quickly noticed those needing things explained in a different way to ensure the message had go through to everyone. A great course from a very knowledgeable and pleasant man. Fully recommended!


Brilliant course. I did it with a friend and there was just the two of us in the workshop which was perfect. I am an absolute beginner and my friend is already quite proficient, but Richard passed on plenty of tips for both of us and got us taking really decent photos of City landmarks. Would definitely recommend to anyone wishing to improve their skills and feel more confident about photography. Richard was very patient, knowledgeable, fun and great at instilling confidence. Beautiful locations too. Overall just a great experience.
