About Our London Photography School

Founded in 2010 in the heart of London, Photoion Photography School is going strong under the stewardship of Ion Paciu.
We’re are a small business and team, and because we are small we treat everyone with great care.
You’re a friend, a family member not a customer and our goal is to see you TAKING GREAT photographs.
Photoion is a London photography school with a difference. We welcome students at all levels of their photography journey, and whether they pursue the skill as a hobby or a career.
Our building has a small community vibe and we strive to bridge the gap between large schools which offer expensive photography courses and low cost, low quality providers.

Our small team of experienced and approachable tutors really care about their students – whether they are new to the school or are a returning student. They have extensive experience in the photography industry and love sharing their knowledge during Photoion’s workshops and courses.

Most of the courses involve hands on practical work as well as theory, and your tutor will have a great understanding of both. We have a small team of London based photography artists at Photoion, all of which are experienced freelance photographers.
With years of professional photography experience under their belts, you know you’ll be learning from the best.

Since opening our doors to enthusiastic photography students, we have taught over 2,900 learners in the art of photography. We know that every pupil is unique and is looking to get something different out of each course.

Here at Photoion Photography School we make sure that our students learn at their own pace and have all the support they need throughout their learning journey.

We even stay in touch with students after their course and encourage them to send in their work for continuous feedback. Rather than a one-off workshop, we offer a lifelong mentor.

We never wanted to be the average photography school which offered a handful of courses. We understand that budding photographers need a wealth of variety to explore the skills they want to develop. Photoion offers 18 courses and workshops to choose from for beginners and advanced students.

From a one day workshop in Black and White Photography to a long term course in Advanced Photography covering all aspects of taking pictures, you’re sure to find a course and level which is suited to you. Of course, the specialist photography workshops are also ideal for professional photographers who are looking to expand their skillset and explore new ways of working.
