It's all about location!

We have some of the best, most interesting, most photographic spots to run our courses in. Read more!

Edmonton is home to some of our favourite Photography Course locations. In this fair city we have some of Alberta's best sights to choose from, and we just love taking our students to see some of the best spots!

In Edmonton, our Digital I Beginner Photography course takes place at the iconic Alberta Legislature Grounds during summer, from April through mid-October. Once the weather cools off, we offer a private, outdoor 3-hour session. This course is perfect for our students to practice all of the techniques they will learn about shutter speed, aperture, ISO, Aperture and Shutter Priority, Manual Mode, depth of field, composition, lens selection and so much more.

For our Digital II Motion & Light Photography course we use the Muttart Conservatory in the spring/summer. This is an incredible location for our students to learn the finer art of composition and how to look for and use beautiful lighting situations. The grounds that the Conservatory resides on provide the perfect place to explore action photography and embrace the challenge of capturing the perfect sunstar. During the winter we offer private, outdoor 3-hour sessions which give great one-on-one instruction for our students.

For our Digital III - Landscapes & Travel Photography course we head a little out of town to the gorgeous UofA Botanical Gardens south of Edmonton. These gorgeous and sprawling grounds provide the perfect backdrop to learn more about the art of landscape and nature photography, with flowing water, blooming flowers and amazing vistas this is the perfect outing for a photography course.

Our People Photography course again takes place in Edmonton's beautiful Muttart ConservatoryIn this fantastic and hands on course you will learn all about the art of portrait photography, from posing individuals and groups, to maximizing the use of natural light. You will find many tips and tricks here that will set you up for taking gorgeous portrait images - all with the backdrop of the gardens of the Muttart.

Our Night Photography course in Edmonton heads back to the Alberta Legislature Grounds. With so much beauty to explore in this area you will have so much fun being able to discover incredible night photography techniques such as light trails, light painting and of course spectacularly clear long exposures.

The last of our 6 core courses is a little more stationary... Our Lightroom Photo-Editing class takes place via Zoom, which allows you to attend this course from the comfort of your own home. We keep the class size small, so there will never be too many faces on your screen.
