The clothing retailer has recruited a number of professional photographers as well as style bloggers to deliver the half-hour workshops, where customers learn how to take photographs using an Olympus Pen camera.

There are classes for people of all levels, from complete beginners through to the more experienced, and each session has a different focus. 

On 28 May blogger Madmoiselle Robot and photographer Cleveland Aaron will deliver the How To Shoot a City class, where participants will learn about shooting cityscapes and close-up architectural details as they embark on a tour around Central London.

Still life photography will be the focus of the Shooting Product workshop on 4 June, which will be hosted by blogger London Beauty Queen and Aaaron. Customers will learn about editorial style still life photography, particularly in relation to beauty products.

The masterclass on 11 June is aimed at those who are serious about improving their photography skills. The session will focus in on the manual settings of the Olympus Pen, and Aaron, blogger Disneyroller Girl and Sunday Times Style’s Pandora Sykes will all be in attendance. 

Three classes will be held on each of the session dates at 12.30pm, 3pm and 6pm.

Shooting Street Style, Live Fashion Shoot and Back to Basics classes were held earlier in the month.
