www.thephotoacademy.com. The adventure began back in 2008. Two photo enthusiasts met on a forum and wanted to share this precious art and craft, so they decided to promote photo classes. The project turned into two websites Lesphotographes.com & Lesphotographes.org, a magazine with advice, and classes with respected and committed photography teachers.

Lesphotographes.org grew and became THE PHOTO ACADEMY with a team of over 100 teaching photographers, a presence in 22 cities, 9 countries and with classes in 3 languages (EN/NL/FR). Today, based out of Paris, Brussels and Montreal, the two founders – Raphaël and Maxime ­ continue to promote photography and develop THE PHOTO ACADEMY.

Our teaching approach:

Thanks to an array of practical and technical courses, we hope to pass along precious “know-how” so you can enjoy learning more about digital or film photography. We also offer an ample range of thematic courses (in the form of classes or workshops) involving some of the oldest types of photography, including historical and alternative techniques.

In our era of image based communications and with the multifaceted world of photography constantly evolving, we try to represent as many of the trends as possible and want our photographers to reflect that richness and diversity. That’s why our team is composed of women and men with different expertise and approaches that reflects the world of photography today.
