People

  • OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Learn Photography Canada is proud to relaunch our new and improved people photography course! When we originally put together the course, all the instructors and staff debated for many hours about what is people photography and how does it relate to modern day photography? How does an amazing cover people in Time magazine differ from a quick snap in Instagram with an applied filter? What and how were we going to teach this diverse form of photography?

Answer – go back to the basics. People photography is all about capturing the soul of somebody and those special moments in time. Our people photography course teaches students how to evaluate the moment and what it takes to make it special. Like a good memory, we take our time with our People course to make sure that students truly understand how to best capture those memories. Our people course is a must for anybody looking to get the best out of their photographs and capture their best memories.
