We are the photography foundation

The Photography Foundation creates pathways to professional photography for less advantaged young adults in London by offering education, work experience and routes to a career in the
creative industries.

What we do

A Simple philosophy with a lasting impact for good

Our mission


Over the course of three months, our trainees will be given the tools and education they need to develop the foundational technical skills required to start a career in photography. Through professional training from industry teachers and hands-on workshops with creative experts, they will learn all of the basics, plus a little more.


Training is great but practice makes perfect, and where better to practice than an on-site professional photography studio? All trainees will have the opportunity to hone their photography skills at TPF Studio, turning it into their own creative playground while they figure out what kind of photographer they would like to be.


We know that experience is key, so we make sure our trainees get as much of it as possible. Whether it's assisting on shoots at TPF Studio with our in-house photographer, or out on location with other professional photographers in our network, all of that theory is put into practice.

TPF Studio

Professional photography studio

Our photography studio is available to hire - with or without our photographer - and is stocked with a wide selection of Profoto and Manfrotto equipment. We're in a great location in the heart of Shoreditch, so come and see what we're up to and consider TPF Studio for your next shoot! With all profits being pumped straight into funding the Foundation, you can feel pretty good about it, too.
