WHY THE SCHOOL OF PHOTOGRAPHY??
Read some of our testimonials.
The School of Photography offers a variety of classes for all skill levels, ranging from beginners, first time users to more advanced skilled photographers. If you haven’t heard of us yet, here is a brief summary of what we are about:
We understand the importance of practical and hands-on workshops. We can sit and talk about the same thing over and over again but photography is a visual medium. Hands on is the best way to learn and that is what we offer. This is what we specialize in making our classes as interactive as possible and including a photo trip at the end.
STUDIO / CLASSROOM
We are centrally operating out of different High Schools throughout the G.T.A. Instead of the fancy expensive Studio that drives prices up, we have a practical but comfortable setting. these classes are set in a relaxed environment with coffee and drinks near by so that you can feel free to get what you like. Our “classroom”, also converts into a “home portrait studio”
We put a lot of focus on building a community with our students and encouraging them to get involved even after the classes are done. Photo Trips, seminars from guest speakers, rare workshops and social gatherings are just some of the many initiatives we have introduced to keep you shooting! Take the class and participation in these Meet-Ups.
We have instructors that are not only good at photography but are also good at teaching! We learned early on that the two do not necessarily go hand in hand. All of our instructors consistently get 5 star reviews. They all believe in a practical and hands-on approach when teaching, all while making the classes fun and interactive.
