A friend is interested in formally studying photography, and has asked me about photo schools. Can anyone recommend any in or near London?

I wonder if there is more information I should be supplying, so if the question is too broad, please leave a comment and I wil try to clarify.

Many thanks!

I think it's actually too localized, not too broad. Plus a little subjective. I'm not voting to close, but I'll be surprised if this gets enough response as-is to give you a meaningful survey of London-relevant opinion. – mattdm Mar 25 '11 at 11:27
@mattdm, fair comment. It's a long shot. – AJ Finch Mar 25 '11 at 12:23

I took classes at Zoom In in Oval, they're a charity, so in addition to your fees being pretty cheap, they spend your money on helping others : )

I started on a basic digital course with a guy called Adrian, fab tutor, and went on to do some advanced stuff, but they have a darkroom too.

The web address is:

Hope this helps you.

Much appreciated, thanks @leighann. :) – AJ Finch Mar 25 '11 at 15:05

Photography is a pretty huge field, you might want to specify what kind of school (trade, fine art, etc) you're looking to get into. A couple people I know finished The London College of Fashion's BS Fashion Photography program and they're pretty happy with it. One of them even works as a pro photographer, which you'll find isn't that common among people who finish photography school.
