THE PHOTO ACADEMY Seoul

Seoul is Korea's most exciting city! It has an enormous variety of things to offer, including our specialised photography courses and online courses. With a rich history and culture, the best way to explore Seoul is with a camera!

What to Photograph in your city?

Awesome architecture, elegant parks, and super cool neighbourhoods: Seoul has a lot to offer photographers! Stroll around the city, camera in hand, and immerse yourself in Seoul's vibrant community. Head to the trendy district of Hannam-dong and explore the neighbourhood's hidden locations and cool Instagrammable spots. Discover the stories Seoul has to tell and practice your reportage photography.

Or, if you prefer landscape photography, where better than Bukhansan National Park! Find a view to photograph the perfect sunset amongst breathtaking scenery. Escape from the city hustle and spend a day in nature photographing portraits and memorable moments of your friends and loved ones.

If you are a foodie, make use of Seoul's thriving culinary scene. Take your camera to Myeongdong's food markets to photograph delicious street food and practice your still life photography. With its buzzing atmosphere, it is also the perfect location to take some street photos. Whether you are a professional, amateur or Instagrammer, it's a great creative opportunity!

Prefer to photograph people? Our online courses will help teach you skills to snap the perfect party pic or take memorable portraits of your friends and family. We even have an online class for the best selfie! Impress your friends with your new photography training or give them a course as a gift!

If you don't have a digital camera or a film camera, we have courses in smartphone photography too. Our photography courses are varied and packed with knowledge. Like Seoul, there is something for everyone.
