“I have been doing photography for the last 40 years but I have learnt more in the last 3 classes than I learnt in the entire 40 years”

At Croydon Camera House we are taking all the necessary safety precautions to keep both our staff members and customers safe. In light of restrictions slowly lifting, we too are assessing the restarting of small workshops and classes.

Our workshops will:

  • Respect social distancing of 1.5 metres, our studio space is huge so you can have plenty of personal space.
  • Be limited to small groups.
  • Have access to hand sanitizer.

We kindly ask that if you are not feeling well that you contact our store and we will reschedule you into a class for when you are feeling better.

Thank you for your understanding.
