The concept of MY PHOTO SCHOOL was started between Rory Baker (ANIOR Photography) and Alan Nixon (Alan Nixon Photography) while working on some projects together.  Both Rory and Alan have been around the block a few times and have many years of experience and mentoring in their past professions. Rory has also been doing photography courses and workshops since 2014.  Now with MY PHOTO SCHOOL, Rory and Alan will expand their offerings to provide tuition for the greater good for all levels of photography from the first time camera buyer to professionals. Over time we will develop a basket of short courses and workshops and also bring in Mentors who specialize in specific genres or facets of photography.

Since the massive uptake of the digital SLR (DSLR) market a decent camera is now not only on most peoples wish list but well within their reach. This plus the fast tracking of technology has also made it very easy for a complete novice to take a half decent shot. Unfortunately the basic understanding of how that shot was achieved, in order to repeat that shot, in most cases remains a mystery. Leaving enthusiasts sometimes a little frustrated with their cameras and a little nervous to venture off the little green square of auto mode or the built-in camera preset modes to try achieve more creative shots.

If people knew just a little more about photography and their cameras they would be able to get so much more out of their equipment regardless of their photography level. MY PHOTO SCHOOL was created to teach all levels of photographers with short courses and workshops developed for the novice through to the professional photographer with easy going mentoring and practical sessions and workshops allowing you to up-skill through ongoing courses and workshops.

It’s time to see just how far your creative talent and camera can go.

Imagine no limits.
