Bearing the titles of Master of Photography and Craftsmen Photographer from Professional Photographers of America, David and Ally McKay embody the keen vision and aesthetic prowess that separated good photographers from great ones.

When not busy instructing the next generation of shutterbugs, David and Ally also devise photo safaris, which send small teams of photographers to capture shots of famed landmarks, including San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge, Washington, D.C.'s Lincoln Memorial, or Yosemite's 60-foot statue of Yogi Bear.

Customer Reviews

Very much enjoyed this class! It is great for beginners. They shared a lot of useful tips and broke down the basic elements of your camera. You can bring any one of your cameras with a manual function and they will help you with your camera. If they happened to come here and host another class, I would sign up for sure.

Learning at McKay Photography Academy is nothing short of wonderful! I have always been interested in photography but never found the right class or environment. Dave and Ally tag-team classes which are very educational, respectful (of knowledge and ability) and fun! I understand how to use my camera now with more confidence and continue to take classes from them to further my ability to understand photography as an art. I just returned from my first tour with MPA to Yellowstone National Park - there are no words to describe the experience except phenominal! I am living my dream learning to create pictures I am proud of!! Thank you MPA!!
