THE PHOTO ACADEMY Los Angeles

Sandy beaches, super cool people and the world's most iconic neighborhoods: We all love LA! It has an enormous variety of things to offer, including our signature photography classes and online classes. With citizens from all over the world, Los Angeles is a true melting pot of cultures and ideas. It's time to grab our cameras and explore!

What to Photograph in your city?

Los Angeles is the dream city for photographers. Whether you are a beginner, a professional or just want a cool Instagram feed, LA has something for everyone. The city is filled with creative opportunities. Our photography classes teach you everything from the correct angle to composition, and cover topics like ISO and shutter speeds. Take the opportunity to discover more about your city and improve your photography knowledge at the same time!

One of the best things about Los Angeles are the numerous beaches, both in the city and a short drive away. Head to your favorite beach to practice your landscape photography. We recommend the stunning El Matador, which is an ideal location to experiment with time-lapse photography. Travel down in the evening to photograph the waves crashing against the unique rock formations and experience a breathtaking sunset!

For you urban photographers, Los Angeles has so many awesome neighborhoods to explore and master your street photography. Spend a Sunday afternoon strolling through Silver Lake or Downtown and immerse yourself in LA's vibrant creative communities. There are so many hidden locations, quirky buildings and colorful street art that make great photography practice. There are a million things to see and do, so capture your Los Angeles experience with a camera!

Prefer to photograph people? Our online classes will teach you essential skills to shoot the perfect party photo or take memorable portraits of your friends and family. We even have an online class for the best selfie! Impress everyone with your new photography skills and build up a professional photography portfolio. Or, if you need to get a gift for your artistic family members, our vouchers make the perfect present.
