THE PHOTO ACADEMY Edmonton
There are many words to describe Edmonton, but boring isn't one of them! Living in Canada's "Festival City" means there is always something exciting going on and always an opportunity to snap amazing photographs. If you feel like your photos aren't as good as they could be, scroll down to our selection of specialized photography classes and online classes. In no time at all you will be taking stunning photographs, even if you are a complete amateur! Our Edmonton-based photographers will pass on years of professional experience and knowledge that ensures total confidence behind the camera.
What to Photograph in your city?
Even on the days when there aren't any festivals, there is so much to photograph in Edmonton. Stunning national parks, funky art galleries and vibrant neighborhoods, there is something to satisfy all your creative urges.
Total beginners should start off with our "Beginner Level" classes or introductory course which includes four workshops. Our professional photographers will teach you to have full control over your camera so you can begin your photography adventure.
If you already have some experience and want to explore different photography genres, then our wide array of classes will meet your desires. If you've always wanted to take photographs of Edmonton's unique buildings, like the wonderful Art Gallery of Alberta, then sign up to our "Architecture Photography" class. This class teaches you the history of this genre as well as vital techniques to take expressive photographs.
If you have always wanted to learn how to take stylish monochrome photos, then consider the "Black and White" class. This is perfect for both urban and nature photographers who want to add a little drama to their images. Next time you are hiking in Elk Island National Park, capture the beauty and mystery of Alberta's landscape with amazing monochrome shots.
Prefer to photograph people? Our portrait class is perfect for you. Or take a look at our online classes and learn how to up your selfie game! We have loads of fun and creative classes waiting for you. Even if you don't have an SLR camera, DSLR camera or a film camera, we have classes in smartphone photography too.
