At Magpie Photography we believe in teaching children to see differently and understand how to take better photographs.


Our clubs and workshops are lead by a professional photographer and we have 12 Nikon W150 cameras ready to get into action! Each child has the opportunity to showcase their best photographs at the end of the term, or after a workshop. These are sent to parents as a digital lightbox.

Our after-school photography club covers the main principles of photography including focus, light and composition. We then have fun trying out sessions such as macro and action photography, and learn creative ways to play around with shutter speed, aperture, composition and lighting.


We currently run after school photography clubs at:

  • Thames Ditton Junior School

  • St Lawrence Junior School

  • Grand Avenue Primary School

  • Rowan Preparatory School

  • Surbiton Preparatory School


"Thank you so much for Charlie's photo gallery. We're so proud of all his fantastic photos and we're going to get some printed and framed to put up at home. Thank you for your advice on cameras for Charlie for Christmas – he was very excited when he opened his present!”
