Customer reviews "Thoroughly enjoyed the night photography course around York. Learnt so much about my camera and how to get great pictures. Andy pitched it at just the right level for me. Would definitely recommend to others."
"Great little walkabout workshop which I have just attended. As someone who is a relative newcomer to photography and having never done any night time photography it really was a big help for me. An informative workshop which I learned from to enable me to get out on my own now and get some night time shots. Well worth doing and would be happy to attend again or recommend to others "
"I attended one of the night photography courses at York and enjoyed it very much. It was very informative and came away having learnt so much . Andy was very helpful,would recommend it"
"I went on a night photography session with Andy recently and I have to say it was worth every penny. Andy is very knowledgeable and passes the information on in a way you can really understand and take home and use. Anyone looking to broaden their photography skills I can highly recommend Andy. Such a lovely relaxed evening and learnt a lot in the 2.5 hours"

Our brilliant Night Photography Courses are run by Andrew Throup of JPO Photography. Andrew’s passion and inspiration for photography started in childhood.
Growing up, surrounded by the natural beauty of Yorkshire, with many days out to places like the North Yorkshire moors, Robin Hoods Bay and the medieval City of York instilled a passion in me to create memories I could return to again and again, through images that captured the warmth and happy feelings I felt in the places I visited. Whilst I take many pictures using natural light, I have also developed and honed various techniques of my own using artificial light alongside natural light to create some truly stunning pictures effects. This is also something I teach on my photography courses.
