We help people become award-winning
Photography Academy was launched by photographer Tim Shields to be a place where the best training and information about becoming a better photographer would be available. This applies to people who want to sell their photos, or want to win awards, or who just want to take better pictures. All are good!
Tim began his photography journey as a kid and it continued as a hobby through adulthood. He started to get serious about photography a decade ago after seeing the work of Peter Lik at his gallery in Las Vegas. When Tim saw the amazing landscape photos in Lik’s gallery it was a life changing moment because he saw what was possible.
For the next ten years Tim studied, learned, tested, failed and experimented with photography. This process of “wandering in the desert” led him to develop his four step photography transformation system that he could use for any photography scenario. He packaged this system into an easily understandable masterclass and his students have used the training to win photography awards, sell their work and to create photos they are proud of.
The Photography Academy community has grown to over 293,130 photographers in 146 countries who have downloaded our courses and tools to improve their photography.
