My Photo School offers photography short courses and workshops for beginners to advanced photographers. Our classes are usually small so no-one is left out and everyone gets involved. The short courses start from an introductory Photography for Beginners to a comprehensive Basic to Intermediate Photography Course, We also do Private Coaching where a photographer can select topics where they feel the need to brush up their skills.
These photography courses are further supported with Lightroom course, Photoshop courses, Master Classes and and day-workshops designed to boost a photographers skills and creativeness even further!
We are proud to launch our RGB Photography Academy.
Instead of offering just a class or workshop, we now offer mentorship
programs designed to help amateur and potential professional photographers reach their goal.
A perfect Gift!
As a keen amateur photographer, the half day practical Intermediate workshop I attended with Rory was both informative and thoroughly enjoyable. Rory spent time to establish what I already knew, and then shared some great tips and skills to help me to improve my photography. As a communications trainer myself, I appreciated his vast knowledge, patient teaching style and great listening skills. It was time very well spent, I’ll definitely be back for more!
I have attended the Lightroom Course with My Photo School about 2 years before. Rory alerted me to several new upgrades in Lightroom so I attended the Lightroom Master Class to learn these new upgrades. Everything was explained in detail, patiently and interactively. By the end of the course I could not wait to go home and put these tools to use. Thank you Rory this course has helped me a lot, you have come to the rescue again.
I began to lose interest in my newfound hobby as I became despondent with the quality of the photos I was taking. So I enrolled in the ‘Basic to Intermediate’ course with Rory Baker and I haven’t looked back. The notes and accompanying outdoor practical are very hands on, and Rory is a patient coach providing ample opportunity and activities to hone skills before moving on to the next level. I highly recommend this course to anyone who has an interest in photography but may lack a bit of confidence and skill. You will be amazed at what you will learn from this talented photographer and what he will help you to achieve in such a short space of time.
I met Rory after my family gave me a bird photography session with My Photo School as a gift. We spent the morning at the SAPPI ponds, a great spot for bird photography and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Since then I have done Rory’s basic to intermediate photography course, Lightroom course and have spent a day with him at Tugela and Mtunzini shooting birds and wildlife. Rory’s knowledge and passion for photography has guided me from being a complete novice to where I really understand what I am doing with confidence as I make photography my retirement hobby.

I want to thank My Photo School, Rory Baker, for being a great inspiration in my photography journey. Almost all what I know I learned from him. I love his courses. It is amazing all the knowledge he has on different cameras and LR and PS, I must now just practice what I have learned. Thank you for been so patience with me.
Thoroughly enjoyed the course, Rory leaves no question unanswered as his knowledge his vast! Met some great people and had a truly memorable experience. I am able to take better photos now that I know what to do!
I loved Rory’s Basic to Intermediate course - it was practical and informative. The theory was made very simple and accessible for me and I enjoyed the practical outings to apply my knowledge. He is incredibly supportive and patient and would highly recommend the Basic to Intermediate program if you are a keen photographer wanting to understand your camera and how to use it well.
I had the wonderful opportunity of doing a photography course with Rory Baker, and being a complete novice I was made to feel at ease and no question was too simple to ask Rory during the course. His lessons were fun and informative . This is a great course for anyone wanting to expand their knowledge and creativity in photography.
I believed cell phone pictures were perfect until I took the basic to intermediate course. Rory flung open an exciting door, revealing a new world and a bunch of good skills. No more clicking, but a growing curiosity and experimentation with photography - plus, I’m editing impressive photos. Do you enjoy fiddling with a camera? If so, ask yourself, what’s the value of a lifetime hobby? Try Rory’s hands-on programme. He’s patient and passionate, and you won’t regret it.
I took home with me the ability to take better and more creative photographs and the bonus of some cheerful memories. A super experience altogether.
