Steve Hedges has been providing workshops and photography courses throughout the UK for over 15 years. “Steve Hedges Photography”, originally known as “ArtEscape Photography”, is a photography course and workshop supplier that teaches a broad range of students – ranging from complete beginner to photography, through to the more advanced photographer. Steve has helped countless people learn how to use their cameras, become technically proficient, improve their creativity and above all develop their eye as a photographer. Our location workshops are limited to just five or a maximum of six participants allowing lots of time for individual tuition. We also offer a range of Distance Learning photography courses, which can be done in your own time from your own home.
Our Photography Courses
All our photography courses are conducted in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere because we believe we all learn more when we are enjoying ourselves. We find that our students get on really well together sharing information, techniques and tips about equipment. In fact, many have gone on to become good photography buddies which is a lovely bonus to attending one of our courses.
We are passionate about teaching photography and love being able to help people move towards their goal of becoming a great photographer. It’s a wonderful hobby or profession. You never stop learning. To book a place on any of our courses, browse our Courses page and select the course you would like to attend.
All photography course categories are shown in the right-hand tool bar of our Courses page. As you see a course you like, hit the “read more” section. Prices and course dates are on the right-hand side of each page plus “add to cart” facilities. For our latest news, please check out our what’s on page.

“Thank you so much for the course notes. I have to say as a fairly experienced amateur I got a lot of out of the course, and enjoyed the session immensely. I’ll be putting these notes to good use, I don’t think I’ve ever seen anyone put the points across so clearly and concisely. I actually found Steve to be the most helpful tutor I have come across to date, attentive to all members of the group regardless of ability and informative at the same time. Thank you again, and I’ll certainly be looking up other courses you do.”
Steve Hubbard, Suffolk’s Hidden coast course – November 2021
“I had a great time, so thank you! I learnt some new tricks around evaluative exposure settings. One thing that stands out to me is Steve’s personality. You can immediately sense the passion for photography. Steve, I thought you had a good way of explaining the theory and technical approach too. I hope our paths will cross at some point in the future, in the meantime I will be reading through your email attachments”.
Ben Cripps, Night photography course : December 2019
“Please let Steve know that I enjoyed Monday and found it very informative. I have been on a few similar courses and this was the most interactive I have had, his method was very “hands on’’, he took time to make sure that we understood what we were doing. All I need to do now is to put into practice what he taught us. The notes arrived safely, many thanks for them”.

Discover Photography On-Location
We offer location photography workshops in a variety of areas such as Essex, Kent, Suffolk, London, Dorset, Sussex, the New Forest, Wales and the Venice carnival.
Learn Photography in a Classroom
We also offer classroom-based photography courses in Essex for those students who enjoy learning in a classroom environment. Our program of classroom lessons include practical assignments designed to add practical experience to the classroom theory.
Distance Learning Photography Classes
For anyone wishing to take our series of classroom photography courses, but living too far away to make this a practical proposition, we also have a distance learning online photography course that is based on all the classroom lessons. The lessons will be emailed to you. Once you have read the modules’ lessons there are a series of photography projects to complete and email to us for assessment. The next module is then emailed out to you providing your projects from the previous module are up to standard and you are ready to move on to the next stage. If you just want to specialise and learn more about one subject of photography, the Distance Learning course can be purchased in smaller modules such as Portrait Photography, Landscape Photography, Digital Imaging and Macro and Nature photography.
