Liverpool is one of the coolest cities in the UK! It is bursting with exciting opportunities for photographers and each corner is packed with creativity that has inspired generations of artists and rock stars. What better way to explore all the sights and secret hideouts in your city than through a camera lens? The Photo Academy offers the best photography courses in Liverpool. No matter if you are a pro, amateur or Instagrammer, you will find something that suits you!
Eclectic architecture, world-famous art galleries and vibrant neighbourhoods: there's so much to photograph in Liverpool! Stroll around your city, camera in hand, and immerse yourself in Liverpool's creative charm.
We love the excitement and energy of Liverpool's streets, which is the perfect subject for our 'Street Photography' course. What better location than the trendy Baltic Triangle to capture photographs of life's fun, unexpected moments? This is a fast-paced genre, but our professional teachers will show you the technical tips and tricks for the best images. If this sounds like your cup of tea, join us! If landscape photography is more your thing, why not spend the weekend with your camera in one of Liverpool's numerous parks? Our favourite is Sefton Park, which is the perfect place to escape the city and spend the day photographing scenic shots. However, if you aren't satisfied with the results, then sign up to our 'Composition' course. Here you will learn how to frame your subjects perfectly and make your images stand out. Or, our 'Light and Focus' course will help you understand lighting and the impact it has on your photographs. Once you've mastered both these courses, play around with composition and light, and don't be afraid to experiment! Prefer to photograph people? Our live online courses will teach you the skills to snap the optimal portrait or selfie. We also have courses for editing your photos using Photoshop, an important skill for all photographers. If you don't have an SLR camera, DSLR camera or a film camera, we have courses in smartphone photography too. Our photography courses are varied and packed with knowledge. Like Liverpool, there is something for everyone.
Do you have a camera but don’t know how to use it properly? Eager to get out and shoot your city? Join one of our photography courses or buy a gift card for a friend!
