THE PHOTO ACADEMY Calgary
Calgary is one of Canada's most understated cities! It has an enormous variety of things to offer, including our specialized photography classes and online courses. With a unique culture and history, Calgary is an awesome city to explore. It's time to grab your camera and begin your photography journey!
What to Photograph in your city?
Beautiful parks, museums, art galleries and the breathtaking Rocky Mountains: Calgary is a great location for photographers! Stroll around the city, camera in hand, and immerse yourself in Calgary's vibrant community. Discover the stories the city has to tell and practice your reportage photography.
Or, if you prefer landscape photography, get your hiking gear together and head to Nose Hill Park. Find the view that captures the perfect picture of the city skyline as the sun begins to set. Make it a weekend trip and photograph portraits of your friends and family amongst the beautiful nature. For you foodies, take full advantage of Calgary's thriving and diverse culinary scene. Bring your camera to the delicious Alforno Bakery & Cafe or the many other indie cafés to practice food photography and still life. Try to get that ideal culinary picture for your Instagram!
Prefer to photograph people? Our online classes will help teach you skills to snap the perfect party photo or take memorable pictures at weddings and events. We even have an online class for the best selfie! Impress your friends with your new photography training.
If you don't have an SLR camera, DSLR camera or a film camera, we have classes in smartphone photography too. Our photography courses are varied and packed with knowledge. Like Calgary, there is something for everyone.
