THE PHOTO ACADEMY Ottawa
If you are tired of defending Ottawa to non-Ottawans, put your hand up! Clearly, they don't know what they are missing, but we know how awesome and underrated Ottawa is. If you want to prove the critics wrong, sign up for one of our specialized photography classes and online classes.
Our tutors will teach you to capture beautiful photographs so you can show off Ottawa's stunning buildings, gorgeous parks, and serene beaches. In no time at all, your photography will improve whether you are a total amateur or experienced intermediate.
Ottawa is full of unexplored photographic potential. Both beginners and professionals can look for unforgettable shots and create original and distinctive narratives. So make the most of your amazing city and get snapping!
What to Photograph in your city?
We love Ottawa's elegant Victorian-Gothic architecture. It makes the city so unique and very photogenic. Although cliché, our photography fingers twitch every time we see the stained-glass windows of the Cathedral of Notre-Dame. If you can relate, then check out our 'Architecture Photography' class! Take breathtaking photos of Ottawa's most iconic buildings and learn the history of this fascinating genre.
One of our most enchanting classes is the 'Low Light Photography' course. Ottawa may not be the liveliest city in the evening, but there is a certain magical charm. So if you have ever wanted to capture the sunset over Rideau Canal, then this class is for you! It's a challenging genre but one that is worth mastering.
If you prefer to photograph people, then sign up to our street photography or portrait class. We also have an online class for the best selfie! In fact, if you can't make it in person, we have tons of live online classes with a little something for everyone.
