THE PHOTO ACADEMY Edinburgh
Edinburgh, the glorious Scottish capital, has been home to great creative minds for hundreds of years. The city's inspiring mysticism is to be found everywhere, from the historic castle to secret alleyways. What better way to explore the town than through a camera lens! The Photo Academy offers photography courses and online courses so you can truly capture your Edinburgh experience.
What to Photograph?
Edinburgh might be the best place to master your photography. You are spoiled for choice with the city's picturesque locations. Head up to Arthur's Seat or Salisbury Crags early in the day to practice framing gorgeous scenic shots. Although the Old Town and New Town have some of Edinburgh's most iconic landmarks, we recommend a stroll through trendy Leith. This vibrant seaside district is home to Edinburgh's arty community and the eclectic scenery has something for every photographer.
Edinburgh's world-famous festivals make every keen photographer's fingers twitch. Immerse yourself in the world-famous Edinburgh Fringe Festival when all sorts of eccentric characters take over the city. Or, hone your gallery photography skills at the Edinburgh Art Festival, the largest of its kind in the UK.
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 course for the best selfie! Our students can discover a wide variety of courses which will change the way they see their city. Like Edinburgh, there is something for everyone.
