Welcome to School of Photography Singapore

We specialize in Private Photography Lessons, Courses, and Workshops in Singapore and overseas. Regardless if you are a newbie, amateur, seasoned, or professional photographer, we are here to help you to achieve your goal.

We offer 1-on-1 Photography Lessons for those who prefer to learn photography at their own personal pace for the most optimal learning experience or wish to accomplish in a shorter time frame. Group Photography Courses are seasonal and are scheduled on the weekday evening and Saturday morning/afternoon, with a capacity of a maximum of 10 participants.

Beside individual learning, we are also known for our unique School Enrichment Programs and Corporate Photography Programs. We are rather proud of the list of organizations we have worked with throughout the years.

Which is the right course for me?

For Beginner and Requiter

For those who have just picked up a camera and are interested in enrolling in a Basic Photography Course, we highly recommend the Essential Foundation Photography Course if you are looking for a good solid foundation full course. Alternatively, if time and budget are a concern you can opt for Camera Craft Course first which is just one of the chapters of the full course. Or Photography Composition, one of the chapters focusing on just making photos, it’s perfect for those who prefer to operate the camera in auto or semi-auto modes, including mobile camera.

For Intermediate

If you completely have your camera on a leash, understand the Exposure Triangle (ISO, Aperture and Shutter Speed), light meter reading, and are fully confident in shooting with fully manual mode without a twitch, then you can jump right into the Intermediate Photography Course which includes the chapters of Dynamic Exposure, Night Photography and the art of Photography Composition. Alternatively, you can opt for any of the chapters mentioned above including Advanced Composition for a shorted version learning.

For Advanced to Professional

If the above foundation is no longer a concern for you and you are ready to advance your photo making skill, Advanced Composition will be the next course. This course will develop your Mind’s Eye and get you out from your regular composition to photo making with geometry and capturing emotion. If you are hardcore and looking for specialty course that will take storytelling to the next level, Documentary Photography is definitely designed for you. This intense and challenging Advanced Course will transform you from a photographer to a documentarian. And for those who want to be in full control of the situation, get technical and create your own lighting effects, we highly recommend one of these Lighting Courses: Essential Lighting Course, Creative Flash Course, and Studio Lighting Workshop.

Oversea Workshops

If you like the idea of intensity learning, traveling and exploring different cultures, check out our Destination Street Photography Workshops. These workshops usually stretch between 3 to 7 days. *Currently no workshops are scheduled.

If you don’t find anything or are unsure about what you need, drop us an email and we will help you by assessing your photography level.


Over the years, through passion and commitment, we worked very hard and maintained our belief in photography education; treat everyone the same, teach everything we know. This belief of ours has proven by the testimonials from our students coming from all over the world. This is what drove us to be the best photography school in Singapore.

“I’ve had the pleasure of taking both foundations and advanced 1-on-1 courses with SOP. The sessions are structured in a manner that helps the student understand technical aspects discussed in an easy manner, the practical part and hands-on reinforces the theoretical concepts… Alan helps you see through the eyes of a photographer and think like a photographer… the way I approached my photography altered with more focus on the story behind the photo, a better understanding of how light works, and what makes a good photo… “
