Academy of Photo Arts
It’s tough to get tree frogs, toucans, and monkeys to sit still in a studio. That's why the leaders of the Academy of Photo Arts take photography trips to Costa Rica, where they can find exotic wildlife in its natural habitat before capturing it on film. The photography academy’s travel courses can also whisk students off to Venice’s picturesque canals, or to Las Vegas to capture shots of the Grand Canyon or the landfill where all copies of Vegas Vacation are buried.
The school hosts Toronto-based courses as well, where keen-eyed photographers lead interactive workshops on wildlife photography and landscape photography. The in-studio courses, meanwhile, focus on techniques that help artists create flattering lighting setups, perform seamless Photoshop edits, and unscrew lens caps rather than smashing them to pieces in frustration. The Academy also provides photo- and video-booth rental that allows photo-takers to capture as many photos and video as they want in both color or black-and-white.
