Welcome to


Whether you are completely new to photography, an enthusiastic amateur or an industry professional, we’ll help you to release your inner artist.

The relaxed and informal atmosphere of our London studio offers the perfect setting for photographers of all ages and levels of experience to come along, chat, share ideas and get creative. You’ll meet people from all walks of life all with a common goal; to take better pictures. Photography is much more than a hobby; the further you delve into it, the more hooked you’re going to get and the more hooked you get, the more you want to know !

Our Ethos

More than anything else, photography is fun; all our activities are designed to bring people together in an environment which stimulates discussion, interaction and creativity. Come along to one of our sessions and we guarantee that you’ll meet plenty of kindred spirits, learn new skills and leave with some incredible images.

Our Themes

To capture that perfect image, you’ll need the right concept with the right models, make-up and styling and it’s all brought together using clever lighting techniques to create the mood. With a little help from our friends in the industry, our workshops cover all of these areas.

We’ll help you to understand all the creative and technical work that goes on behind-the-scenes at a photo shoot before you press the shutter button and produce that magical image.

What equipment will you need ?

Don’t rush out and buy the latest camera; bring along what you’ve already got and we’ll show you how to get the most out of it. Whether you’re using a self-built camera or the latest state-of-the-art technology, with the right technique you’ll be producing sensational results in no time! All you need is a love of photography and a desire to learn; we’ll do the rest !

Our Programmes

Every month LPW offers a host of events which will get you itching to grab your camera and start snapping. You’ll meet people from all walks of life and with a wide range of photography experience from complete beginners to professionals so there are lots of opportunities to exchange ideas and learn from each other as well as from us. Our events are fun, informative and affordable.

Workshops - they have quickly become amongst the most sought after photography events in London. Our sessions are delivered by some of the industry’s most respected professionals led by internationally renowned photographer and photography author, Luca Monti. We’ll feed your passion for photography and give you the technical and creative skills you need to take better pictures. We cover a broad range of topics such as fashion, nude, boudoir, creative, still life and portrait photography. You’ll learn all the skills you need to take photographs from an idea to an image. Come along to one of these informal, fun sessions; we guarantee you’ll want to come back for more.

  • Evening Workshops - come over to our studio after a day at the office and enjoy one of these friendly, chilled-out events. You’ll meet plenty of like-minded people and pick up lots of tips. We’re always thinking up new concepts and introducing new models at these sessions to expand your portfolio and get your creativity flowing.
  • Full Day Workshops - There’s a reason why these events are so popular; they’re just awesome! The day begins with a lighting and styling brief and then it’s off you go to come up with your concept, create your mood board and plan your shoot. These days are relaxed and enjoyable; an absolute must for anybody who is serious about improving their photographic know-how.

Meet the Model - These 1-hour shoot slots give LPW members a chance to work one-to-one with a professional model in our studio. You’ll experiment with different lighting set ups and practice your model direction skills, all under our expert guidance. A Meet the Model session is a fantastic way to build your confidence, refine your skills and professionalise your portfolio.

Photo Walks - Get out of the studio and join us on a photographic adventure. These events are limited to just 12 people with not one but 2 professionals so you’re guaranteed lots of 1-2-1 attention. Urban landscapes, cliff top panoramas, chocolate box villages, rolling countryside, day time or night time, 3 hours to all day; the possibilities are limitless !
