If you want to expand your skillset to create artistic and interesting effects, our Long Exposure Photography courses offer you the perfect chance to do this. Our enthusiastic and experienced tutor will take you to iconic locations across the Southbank so you can capture London’s most famous landmarks in a unique way.

You will learn all the essential tips and techniques for long exposure photography so you can become confident with this style and use it to expand your portfolio. Like all our photography sessions, this workshop is taught in a small group so you’ll receive individual attention and feedback.

All City Academy tutors are experienced professionals from theatre, film/TV and performance industries. So whilst they're training you they may also be rehearsing for a West End show or working on a movie. We like that and we do believe it makes a difference in class.
