Inspiring, practical photography workshops

IN LONDON and around the UK


Hi, I'm Emily Quinton. I teach people to take better photographs.

Great images will help you promote whatever it is that you do – a business, blog, or a creative project. But posting consistently high quality images that tell your story to those that follow you can be hard. 

I run inspiring, practical workshops that help you understand how to use your camera or phone to take great images. We're all leading busy lives, so this is all about helping you fit photography into your every day life or work.

My workshops cover food, styling, branding and taking images for social media. 

Read on for what's coming up in the studio and around the UK!

About the different workshops on offer


A taste of a Makelight workshop

Love for Emily's workshops

"I attended The Visual Social Media course. I found it very inspiring. Emily was warm, friendly and a great source of information and advice. Since then I have started my blog with Emily's great advice." Natasha, Taking a Moment in Time
"During the workshop I was given the knowledge to take and style great photos. Emily is the most wonderful teacher, very encouraging and was eager to ensure that all students photographic needs were met. I have since had the confidence to use my own photography on my blog posts and my Instagram feed has significantly improved" Doris, Diary of An Interior Novice

About Emily


I've been taking photographs my whole life and teaching for several years.

I love to inspire people to fall in love with photography and to learn to take beautiful images with whatever camera they have.

Every day I post instagrams I've shot on my iPhone. For my portfolio and client work I love shooting with my Canon SLR.


The Makelight studio


If you're able to attend a London workshop, they all take place in our bright studio that's always full of light, even on a cloudy day!


The Makelight Studio is in West Dulwich, South London.

About fifteen minutes from Victoria by train followed by a five minute walk from West Dulwich station.
