LATEST NEWS - During the challenging times we are all facing in the UK, our first thoughts are for the health and wellbeing of our photographic community and staff. With this in mind, Nikon School at Margaret Street will be closed until further notice. In the meantime, Nikon School will be hosting a range of online workshops, talks and seminars.
If you have already completed a training course, we would love to hear about how you found the course, its contents, the location and training, so that we can make any amendments necessary for the future success of the courses.

We were very lucky to photograph the Northern Lights on the doorstep of the hotel. As these lights are usually elusive both Neil & Mark kept a nightly watch for us and we were rewarded with spectacular displays on 2 nights. Both Neil & Mark were on hand to give their advice on best camera settings to capture this phenomenon. The Icelandic landscape is monochromatic in winter during the day, so most of our shoots were of sunrises and sunsets. Neil & Mark were great in guiding us to locations.
For my raining I had to send in advance the particular topics I'd like to be covered. It is a very clever idea! My trainer Neil is extremely knowledgable. He talked me through my long questionnaire, and also covered topics I hadn't included. His explanations were comprehensive and valuable. He used visual aids which made my journey through the realm of Photography smoother. I felt at ease when guided by Neil. Now I'm confident to put my Z50 into a better use. I'm motivated to make Neil proud!
Ricci was a fantastic tutor, very easy to talk to and encouraged me to ask lots of questions. We covered everything which I wanted to and more and I feel like I can now apply what I know with confidence within my changing job role. I value his honesty on around certain teaching points and he gave me lots of useful tips.
We started the workshop with Ricci giving us a very instructive talk covering every aspect of the camera and how we be should be shooting the different shots we would be taking. He then carefully explained the route we would be taking and the best vantage points to take the best photos. We then started our adventure and he was patient, helpful, guiding us with everything we might be needing.
The evening was great in every way …I thoroughly enjoyed myself and learnt a huge amount.
An excellent afternoon in great company with Nikon's top trainers and other course members. A full afternoon of new photographic challenges and learning new skills.
Any photographers bucket list should include a trip to magical Iceland. The trip was run by Neil Freeman & Mark Andreas Jones (local knowledge & Pro photographer). The course was run superbly, we ticked all the boxes of the most iconic places to visit. We were very lucky with the weather as we saw the Aurora Borealis in its full glory. Neil & Mark were excellent with their knowledge of camera settings and very helpful with editing at the end of the day. I would highly recommend this trip.
an excellent day run by a very knowledgeable trainer, The other people on the course were a great group of photographers I now have a better understanding of my speedlight and look forward to trying out my new skills
Finally managed to visit Iceland and its all thanks to Nikon School UK. This destination is simply a photographers paradise and by far the best course the school has run, and I have attended pretty much every workshop. Neil Freeman's knowledge and experience really helped me and fellow photographers get a large portfolio of photographs which I shall treasure for a lifetime - this is the ultimate photography course and I highly recommend attending as you will not be disappointed
Being a steam locomotive enthusiast this course was heaven for me. The scene setters did a tremendous job of adding character to the shoot which with Ricci’s guidance proved to be very successful. Would recommend it to anyone with a liking for steam locomotives.
I am new to photography, so I was attending as a beginner. Instantly felt welcome and comfortable by all the staff. Started with a comprehensive technical brief before hitting the streets. Locations were well chosen and convenient. Ricci was, as ever very helpful and continually walking between the attendees giving tips on composure. This is my second Nikon course, they are such a pleasure to attend, I always come away feeling like I've taken a big step forward. Big thank to the team at Nikon.
