Stephen Walton iPhotography Tutor

Stephen Walton (Head Tutor)

Stephen brings many years of photographic experience with him to his role as content and course creator.

After leaving art school he went straight into studio photography working alongside Photo Corp UK, before running one of the UK’s most successful high-end portrait studios with Venture Studios for over a decade.

His personal work which stretches from portraits to landscapes, and other niches in between could be described as atmospheric and low key – sounds moody, but he’s not really!

He’s previously had work published by Adobe Photoshop on top of many industry awards for his portrait photography.

Rebecca Santo (Head Tutor)

With over 8 years as a professional photographer, Rebecca has used her experience wisely. She was headhunted straight out of university by renowned portrait & commercial shooter Damian McGillicuddy where she assisted on projects all across the UK.

Having also worked for Nikon, she is the font of knowledge when it comes to their camera and accessory range.

For Rebecca, photography isn’t about having the most expensive equipment or the best camera. It’s about utilizing your imagination in every aspect of your life, which is why she fits into our iPhotography tutor team so well!

On a personal note, we believe Rebecca is part human, part canine as she is never far away from a furry friend. She also has a quirky knack for remembering someone’s names by their dogs!
