Journey Photo Academy was founded by two photographers passionate about their craft. After spending years traveling around the world refining their ability to realistically capture moments with astonishing clarity and emotion, they found their way to Washington D.C.
Here they were disappointed to discover a major gap in the availability of rigorous photography workshops designed to truly inspire and develop growing photographers. Many of the classes available were either entirely lecture based, or used unstructured, disjointed, and in-field crash course style tours. Furthermore, these courses were largely reactively driven by student questions. This approach usually only provides a student with a vague familiarity of key concepts.
Having once been frustrated trying to learn to consistently compose exceptional photos themselves, they aspired to create a more organized course based around known pillars of learning. Our programs are the result of that endeavor and use a highly structured approach that ensures each student consistently advances in their skill and understanding during the course.
