Macro Photography Courses

On our Macro Photography Courses, you will delve into the fascinating world of macro photography, where you’ll be amazed at the ingenuity of the photographs you capture. Our experienced tutors will help you create images which are quite literally larger than life. Develop your technical knowledge as well as creativity to capture sharp, close-up images to a professional standard.


This photography course is split between theoretical and practical sessions so you can develop a deep understanding of macro photography. The very small group size also means you’ll get plenty of one to one attention and feedback so you can improve rapidly.

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.
