Chicago Photography Academy
Chicago Photography Academy hones photographic eyes and bulks up shutter-snapping fingers through a host of short-term and intensive classes geared to all skill levels. Students can gauge their education by personal interests and schedule, hunkering down for a one- or two-day crash course. Instructors impart a working knowledge of photo-editing software during lightroom classes, whereas introductory video sessions teach how to shoot realistic video of faked moon landings. Students can build the skills necessary to snap stunning wedding photos, or immerse themselves in the CPA's colorful curriculum with a one-year certificate program in photography, which combines all of the school's classes into one linear progression. Classes include all necessary supplies for printing images, and do not require shutterbugs to purchase additional lenses or retro fedora hats.
