The adventure began back in 2008. Two photography enthusiasts met on a forum and wanted to share this awesome creative practice, so they decided to promote photography classes. The project turned into two websites, a magazine with advice and classes with respected and committed photography teachers.

One of the websites grew and became THE PHOTO ACADEMY, with a team of more than 300 teaching photographers, a presence in 60 cities and 20 countries. Today, based out of Paris and Brussels, 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 classes, we hope to pass along essential know-how so you can enjoy learning more about digital or film photography. We also offer a 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 reflect the world of photography today.
