We love running our Photography Courses in Ottawa! Canada’s capital city is so full of amazing museums and galleries that we are spoiled for choice.

Our Digital I – Beginner Photography course takes place year round at and around the National Gallery of Canada. This unique and incredible location provides a gorgeous mix of outdoor splendour in the surrounding gardens, and architectural interest in the Gallery itself. It’s the perfect place to learn all about the foundations of photography, including aperture, shutter speed, ISO, Aperture Priority, Shutter Priority, Manual Mode, depth of field, white balance, composition, lens selection, compression and distortion. Depending on the weather you will find a mix of enjoyable outdoor activities and / or some great indoor ones.

Our Digital II – Motion & Light photography course takes place in the same area. The Gallery provides the perfect backdrop to learn all about action photography and start discovering how light plays an incredibly important role in composition. You will be able to experiment with exposure compensation, directional light, natural light portraits, spotlighting and sun stars.

Our Digital II – Landscapes & Travel photography course heads to a few of Ottawa’s incredible local landscape scenes. Starting at the gorgeous Hogs Back Falls, you will learn all about the art of long daytime exposures using filters. Moving on through the day you will head down to the Dominion Arboretum and wander through the hectares of gorgeous flower and tree displays. Here you will learn all bout the various compositional techniques you can employ when out and about in nature.

Our People Photography course takes you to either the Jacques Cartier Park or back to the National Gallery (to escape the weather). In this wonderful course you will learn all about posing individuals and groups of people and using natural light to create stunning portrait images.

For our Night Photography course you will be heading up to Major’s Hill Park to capture some gorgeous long exposure images of the city. Learn how to take crystal clear photos at night in this spectacular location and have fun with light painting, light trails and zoom lines.

Finally, our Lightroom Photo-Editing course takes place in one of a few carefully selected venues across the city. Sit down with your laptop for the day and learn all about organizing and editing your photos while sipping on delicious beverage and eating delicious food.
