Kelowna provides the most spectacular backdrop for our hands-on Photography Courses. With so many fantastic locations to choose from, you will rarely see the same thing twice.

Our Digital I – Beginner Photography course has two locations depending on the seasons. From April through October we take advantage of the gorgeous Kelowna waterfront area by strolling through Waterfront Park. Meeting at the Dolphin’s statue, we have a wonderful backdrop for learning about aperture, shutter speed, ISO, Aperture Priority, Shutter Priority, Manual Mode, depth of field, white balance, composition and lens selection and distortion and compression. During winter we take this photography course indoors to the Okanagan Heritage Museum. Here we get the chance to practice the same concepts in a warm, dry setting that has lots of great photography subjects!

Our Digital II – Motion & Light photography course takes place at the Rotary Centre for the Arts during winter (just look at that lobby!), and outdoors at Kasugai Gardens during summer. Each location is perfect for exploring action photography and discovering how to up your composition game by looking for, and using your camera to capture, unique and interesting light. Learn how to perfect your natural lighting game and capture that perfect sunstar.

Our Digital III – Landscapes & Travel photography course takes you to a few wonderful location sites – such as Knox Mountain Park for some spectacular views, Mill Creek Regional Park, to spend some time by the water, and when the occasion fits, a short stop at a local winery to capture the vineyards. These locations provide wonderfully varied scenes for you to learn how to capture varied and interesting landscape compositions, learn how to use filters, and what goes into making an HDR image. You’ll have a great time and get the chance to explore your local area too!

For our People Photography course you will be back at the Kasugai gardens during summer and off to the Rotary Arts Centre again during winter. These locations provide wonderful backdrops to learn all about the art of portrait photography – from posing, to using natural light to capture the best portrait image.

Our Night Photography course takes you to the vineyards at Quail’s Gate, overlooking the valley. Here you’ll be able to master the art of capturing long exposure images, as well as be able to play with light painting, light trails, zoom lines and more!

And our final core course, our Lightroom Photo-Editing course takes place at one of a number of amazing coffee shops in the Kelowna area. This is our only seated course and rather than use a classroom, we always aim to have you in a great location to enjoy some delicious eats and drinks while working your way through the Adobe Lightroom software, from importing to organizing, and editing to exporting.

Want to take all 6 of these fantastic courses? Make sure you check out our fantastic Ultimate Bundle and get your hands on some great savings.
