We love Calgary! It's understated and sophisticated with a unique culture and history. We think it's an excellent city to begin your photography adventure and our photography classes in Calgary are the best! Our professional photography teachers will guide you through your journey and are happy to answer any questions you have. No matter if you are a beginner or an intermediate, our classes will teach you new skills and sharpen your photographer's eye. You won't see Calgary in the same way!
It's fair to say that there is a little bit of everything in Calgary: beautiful parks, museums, art galleries and the breathtaking Rocky Mountains. This makes it ideal for photographers to explore different genres. Our classes are varied and offer new experiences for students, no matter what you are interested in.
For those that love Calgary's beautiful landscapes, like our favorite spot Nose Hill Park, check out our 'Composition for All' class. This class will improve your images dramatically and is great for those that struggle to frame their subjects. Although it's particularly applicable to landscape photography, it's a vital skill that can be applied to all genres.
Living in a cool, young city means that Calgary undoubtedly has one of the best nightlife scenes in Canada. If you are a night owl, sign up to our 'Low Light Photography' class and take your camera around the city after dark. This is a poetic, mysterious genre that you are sure to love.
Or, if you prefer the buzz of the city during the day, check out the 'Street Photography' class. Your teacher will explain how to quickly capture unpredictable moments when you are out and about. These versatile skills will make you more alert and improve your reaction time; perfect when photographing events like The Stampede!
We also have a wide selection of live online classes. Here you can find classes focussing on software like Lightroom, or specific genres like food photography. There's so much to choose from! We even have an online class for the best selfie! If you don't have an SLR camera, DSLR camera or a film camera, we have online classes in smartphone photography too. Our photography courses are varied and packed with knowledge. Like Calgary, there is something for everyone.
Do you have a camera but don’t know how to use it properly? Eager to get out and shoot your city? Join one of our photography classes! You don't need to have professional photography experience or a creative college degree. Have a look at our classes for beginners, including the online courses. We also have courses in Vancouver and Edmonton. You will learn new skills and techniques, from shutter speed to depth of field, and exposure to ISO. Our professional photographers will teach you technical terms, show you how to manage your camera settings and help you out with specific issues. By the end you will get the best use out of your camera and have a great understanding of photography :)
