• Photography workshops led by professional photographers
  • For students studying photography at Key Stage 4 to 5

The National Portrait Gallery has an extensive permanent photographic portrait collection, as well as displaying temporary photographic exhibitions. We offer a significant programme for the interpretation of study and photography including practical workshops.

Students work in our studio workshop space using large-format and/or digital cameras, using studio lighting to create their own portraits, taking on the roles of photographers, stylists and models.

Students develop ideas, improve technical skills with formal elements, and make connections between their own outcomes and the artists' approach.
