ArtEscape Photography has been running now for eight years. Originally set up by professional photographer Steve Hedges, and his wife Carole, we aim to provide fun and informative courses for all levels of photographers in locations including Essex, Kent, London, Suffolk, Sussex and many more. Whether you are a beginner and are new to the beautiful art of photography or you are more experienced and just want to polish up your skills, we will make sure that we have the perfect photography course available to suit your needs.

With photography courses in many locations around the south of England and Wales plus overseas, we make sure that each course is tailored correctly to each individual to ensure that you are getting the best level of teaching that you need. We provide various classroom courses in Essex to suit everyone’s level of experience. As well as photography courses in Essex we also offer photography location courses which are usually limited to no more than five attendees at a time so that Steve can get plenty of one to one time with everyone to help develop your skills as much as possible and tailor the learning experience specifically to each person. 

After attending any of our courses, all students are sent a comprehensive and fully illustrated set of notes so they can read, look back on, and remember what they have learned. 

We are listed in the online Magazine as one of the top ten photography course providers in the U.K.

As well as offering our quality photography courses in Essex, London, Kent, Suffolk and Sussex plus many more locations, we also offer a distance learning photography course which means no matter where you are located you can still undertake our photography courses from the comfort of your own home. For all students taking this course we offer discounts on our location workshops.

Photography is a wonderful hobby or career to get involved in and I personally love the fact that it takes you to places of breathtaking beauty or allows you to view and capture events with perhaps heart-stopping moments of action. Here at ArtEscape Photography we would like to work with you to improve your image-making and to hopefully give you the same passion for photography that we have. Please don’t hesitate to contact us about our photography courses that we run in Essex as well as our location courses throughout the south of England and Wales and overseas.

Distance Learning Photography Course

Our distance learning online photography course is ideal for people who want to learn the art of photography at their own pace.  Because of its modular design the course can be completed one step at a time. There are no limits to the length of time it takes each student to complete the full set of modules.  With this course you can learn as quickly or as slowly as you like!

Photography Location Courses

ArtEscape Photography not only runs classroom-based photography courses in Essex, we also run courses at a number of different locations throughout the country as well as overseas.

The various locations in which we run our photography courses offer a huge variety of subjects for students to get their teeth into. From London’s South Bank to probably the most photogenic city in the world, Venice, to river, mountain and coastal locations, I believe we have a course to suit all tastes.

All the location photography courses that we run are suitable for beginners through to more advanced levels of experience.

Photography Classroom Courses

Here at ArtEscape Photography we run a number of classroom-based courses in the Essex area. These courses include a beginners photography course that concentrates on the correct way to use the camera – its controls, menus etc., which will take you away from “automatic” mode, then an intermediate photography course which covers the technical side of photography as well as the creative side of photography. Also there is our advanced photography course which covers photographic subjects in greater detail and also a post picture-taking digital imaging course which is focused on the computer skills needed to produce images with impact. Again a fully illustrated, comprehensive set of notes is included with all our classroom courses.
