Photography and Print Workshops

Academy sign up

The Fotospeed Academy provides practical workshops tutored by professional photographers and image makers.  The practical
1-day workshops teach the skills and techniques required to get the most out of photography and prints, giving practical hands-on experience, delivered by inspiring experts, that can be harnessed to maximise printing skills.

At the Fotospeed Academy we believe that printing an image is the final stage of any photograph and will ensure you leave our workshops with a print in your hand.

We are pleased to work with so many inspiring photographers everyday and hope that you find the workshop leaders as exciting as we do.
