What to Photograph in your city?

Paris is a dream city for photographers. Every corner is overflowing with photographic potential. From the beautiful buildings to the diverse groups of people, what more could you ask for! If you are not sure what course to choose, we suggest strolling around the city with your camera and noticing what captures your attention. There's something for everyone at The Photo Academy! If you are at the start of your photography journey, take a look at our beginner courses. Here you will learn to master the basics in no time and have full control over your camera. Our courses such as Composition For All are essential if you want to learn the core principles of photography. Breaking the rules is great, but you need to learn them first in order to break them! Naturally, photography is also about style and aesthetics. Our Black and White course is the perfect opportunity to create instantly stylish images. Learn how to manage exposure for shadows and highlights, as well as what scenes make the best subjects. Parisian life looks even classier in black and white! If staying at home is more your thing, take a look at our amazing selection of our live online courses. Learn to take the perfect selfie or improve your Instagram feed all from the comfort of home! Even if you don't have an SLR camera, DSLR camera or a film camera, we have courses in smartphone photography too!
