More About Our Amazing Mississauga Locations

It's all about location! And we have some of the best, most interesting, most photographic spots to run our courses in. Read more!

Mississauga is one of the GTA’s most underrated photography areas, and we just love the variety and quality of locations here to run our photography courses in!

Our Digital I – Beginner Photography course takes place in two different locations depending on the season and the weather. During summer we run our classes in the gorgeous Brueckner Rhododendron Gardens. This wonderfully colourful backdrop provides the perfect space to learn all about shutter speed, aperture, ISO, Aperture Priority, Shutter Priority, Manual Mode, depth of field, composition, lens selection, distortion & compression. In winter, we head indoors to the Centennial Park Conservatory, where we have a warm, dry backdrop to run this fantastic hands-on photography course.

Our Digital II – Action & Composition photography course heads down to the Adamson Estate during summer. Here we take advantage of fresh air and warm breezes while we learn all about action photography and composition using light. We explore exposure compensation, directional light and spotlighting as well as set ourselves the challenge of capturing the perfect sunstar! During the colder month’s we head back indoors to the Centennial Park Conservatory and explore this area with a whole new set of skills.

Our Digital III – Landscapes & Travel Photography course heads a little out of town to some of the region’s most beautiful sights. We start this course at the gorgeous Hilton Falls, where our students get the chance to practice long exposure photography using filters. From here we head up to the lookouts at Mount Nemo Conservation Area to practice a wide variety of fantastic compositional techniques. This is a beautiful course and a great way to get out and explore your local area!

For our People Photography course, we head back to the Bruecker Rhododendron Gardens as those flower beds and benches provide the perfect backdrop to learn how to pose, organize and use natural light to capture the perfect portrait image. Winter takes us back indoors again to the always lovely Centennial Park Conservatory!

Our Night Photography course takes place at the lovely Kariya Park – a Japanese inspired garden right near the centre of Mississauga. Here you will have the chance to explore everything great about night photography, from capturing crystal clear long exposure images, to having fun with light trails and light painting. This is a great location to explore the beauty of night photography!

The final of our 6 core courses, our Lightroom Photo-Editing course is one of the only stationary courses we offer. This course takes place in one of the many gorgeous cafe’s we’ve organized to run this day out of. We always choose an interesting location with plenty of food and drink to keep you well fed and hydrated throughout the entire day.
