We are the photography foundation

Creating pathways to professional photography for less advantaged young adults in London through education, work experience and alternative routes to creative careers.

What we do

A Simple philosophy with a lasting impact for good

Our mission


Over the course of three months, our trainees are 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'll 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 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 working on commercial briefs from brands in our network, all of that theory is put into practice.

"This is a place where young people can find inspiration, technical knowledge and an understanding of the creative industry, in a space that offers them the freedom to experiment and find their creative voice"

- Jess Bonham, Photographer

TPF Studio

Commercial Photography Studio

Our professional photography studio is available to hire - with or without our studio 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! And as all profits are used to fund the Foundation's work, you can feel pretty good about it, too.
