Welcome to The Manchester Academy of Photography, a professional training centre in the vibrant heart of Manchester’s Northern Quarter.

The Academy is the original photographic training school in Manchester. We provide introductory and advanced digital photography workshops; we also offer specialised courses in Travel, the Use of Light, Night Photography, and Documentary Photography.

Our photography courses have no more than 6 students per trainer, allowing plenty of time for some one to one tuition. All of our photographers are professionally trained teachers as well as being accomplished and passionate photographers.

Regardless of your ability – from a total beginner or a budding professional – The Manchester Academy of Photography has a course that will suit your needs.

Will I be out of my depth?

Certainly not! Whatever your level of photographic ability our approach is teaching practical skills in an enjoyable way rather than lecturing.
