Photography courses online, in person and for schools. We provide training in Photography, Photoshop, Lightroom and Studio Lighting from beginner to advanced levels and pride ourselves in being the best in delivering photography education.

These photo tutorials go into extreme detail on topics like planning, composition, advanced techniques (focus stacking, time-lapses, long exposure, etc.) post-processing skills, social media tips, and even making money with your photography.

Alex Strohl is one of my favorite outdoor adventure photographers, so when I learned he created his own online photography class called Adventure Photography Pro, I signed up ASAP! Alex shoots professionally for some HUGE brands, so it was super interesting to learn about this part of his business (along with actual examples on location with clients).

With 15 lessons and more than 12 hours of video content, his photography tutorial takes you from the on-location capture (in places like Iceland & New Zealand) all the way through his post-processing techniques in the studio.

Want to learn how to compose a better image while telling a story with your camera? Or the technical side of photography like understanding what aperture, shutter speed and ISO really do? These are just some of the topics travel photographer Laurence Norah goes over in his Travel Photography Course.

Our Teen Academy program, geared toward young photographers, offers students ages 14-19 the opportunity to develop their photography skills.

Two of the most in-demand types of photography are portrait and family photography as well as wedding photography. While the latter tends to be somehow seasonal, you can rely on a steady source of income if you choose to become a portrait photographer.Other great options are commercial photography (including food, architecture, design, or other products and services), fashion photography, travel, outdoor wildlife and nature, stock photography, and photojournalism. Social media also offers many options to focus on, such as becoming an influencer with your photography skills or offering your skills to others.

A beginner photography class will teach you the basics of photography, familiarize you with the equipment you need and how to use it, and show you how to view the world around you with a photographer's eye by formulating a goal and planning and executing your project.If you are already experienced and want to perfect your technical skills or try a new area such as wedding, portrait, or wildlife photography, your course will aim at teaching you the technical, creative, artistic, and purely organizational skills you need to become a master in your desired field. Choosing the right class, reading carefully through the description, and even contacting the tutor or community beforehand might save you time and help you better prepare before the class starts.

According to IBISWorld, the market size of photography in the U.S. is $10.1 billion in 2022.

It has awarded 100 contracts to 49 companies, with an average value of $324,275 per company.

Moreover, a research by PR Newswire has shown that the global digital photography market, which is growing at a CAGR (compound annual growth rate) of 7.4% during the forecast period, is expected to reach $149.98 billion by 2026.

In this extensive course, professional photographer Mark Wallace will show you the best tips and tricks for shooting portrait photography, editing your photos, and fun tutorials to improve your creativity and technique, so that you can take your photography skills to the next level.

This course is packed with technical and practical tutorials where you will learn everything from how to shoot photography in a studio using the right lighting, position of the camera and model, using program mode, choosing the right lens, creating soft light, fill flash, high contrast, to more practical applications of those techniques.

The courses are broken down into 11 and 12 lessons respectively. Each lesson involves about 5 to 10 minutes of work. Concepts are taught through a combination of videos, external readings and projects.

This course is for photographers not only looking to improve their photography skills, but also willing to go to the depths to learn about posing and even use editing software like Adobe Lightroom to make their photos the best.

Flash (6 tutorials): Create natural light indoors with flash, using flash to create natural vs. dramatic imagery, motion into flash photography (2 parts), using off-camera flash and radio remotes.

This course is designed to cover all aspects of beginning photography. You will learn proper exposure and appropriate use of shutter speed and aperture as well as lens choices and lighting options. You will learn many methods for creating strong compositions. This course will teach you how to create beautiful images - not just snap photos. Prerequisites: Understanding Your Canon/Nikon DSLR Equipment Needed: DSLR Camera

Learn the principles of good outdoor and landscape photography in this class from initial visualization, suggested equipment through editing the photos you have taken. Topics will include composing landscapes, creating panoramas, using multiple exposures, identifying layers of interest, flowing water, photographing in lowlight and harsh light, software demonstrations and suggestions for the best equipment for outdoor photography.

Studio lighting can provide the consistent and predictable high-quality results many photographers require. From tabletop and product images to portraits, fashion and group photography, this course will examine the concepts, equipment, and techniques for simple, effective, and inspired lighting. Modern LEDs, ring lights and traditional strobes, lighting modifiers and backdrops will be used during workshop sessions throughout this course. Photographic planning, composition, and design, as well as posing and props for subjects, will be discussed and demonstrated to achieve the best possible results for each image and subject.

This is the capstone course for those seeking the photography certificate and have completed all the core and elective courses. The course will be run as an independent study. Must be approved by Academy to register for this course. Email us at: for approval.

Electronic flash photography may seem confusing, inconsistent and frustrating, but mastery of even the basics can open a whole new world of photographic possibilities. Flash photography unquestionably improves the quality of images taken in a number of common shooting situations and is just plain fun! The opportunities are virtually unlimited. This course is designed to first to assure that each student understands how to operate and use their electronic flash equipment and will then explore a number of creative applications. Techniques for fill flash, off-camera flash, rear-curtain flash, multiple flash and painting with light will each be explored.

But I soon discovered my passion was telling stories through photography. I've worked on documentary projects for nonprofits and NGOs around the world and have also taught photography lessons on three continents.

This class was above and beyond what I felt I signed up for. There is so much great information within this course and the structure of the course really allows you to learn the information. Having John individually grade assignments and give you feedback was a major help and also really motivated me to keep doing more lessons and show that I was learning the information. I am a beginner and learned so much through this course. I would highly recommend it to anyone learning a new fujifilm camera or photography in general. In just a few weeks I have far more of an understanding that I would have just doing free youtube videos, etc. It is well worth it!

John's knowledge and his ability to explain photography concepts in simple, concise and understandable terms significantly enhanced my knowledge of photography. This is the most useful photography class I have ever been involved with, having taken other online classes, watching videos and group lessons. Without a doubt, his classes have regenerated both my knowledge and excitement in taking my photography to the next level!

John Peltier makes it very clear from the onset, that he is 'in your corner' to assist you as you complete his courses. However, he also is clear that one gets out of these courses is directly related to the input. It is obvious that he is a seasoned teacher, providing a learning method to achieve individual goals. I am looking forward to enjoying these courses.

In Spring 2011, Stanford University hosted a series of lectures designed to help students learn more about digital photography. And while the art has evolved dramatically since then, you will still find a lot of use in the information shared in this course. 041b061a72
