Announcing extensive and in-depth online photography courses—now available! These courses are designed with new photographers in mind, or for those needing a refresher. All you need is a computer with an internet connection and your camera. The courses and instructor have been very highly rated for quality of instruction and immediate benefit.
The initial offering will be the famous 'Photo 101' course, which has been reformulated into a 4-week offering for online learning. Class sizes are small to allow all attendees to be able to ask questions and communicate in the group with ease.
Each course will begin on a specific day of the week and be repeated on the following week on the same day and time. The entire course is over 8 hours in duration, with each week taking 2+ hours to cover the material and allow time for asking questions and covering additional topics as they arise. The primary goals are: to make you successful by covering the essential fundamentals for all photographers, and learning how to solve problems, taking full advantage of the camera.
The basic course outline includes but is not limited to:
Each course comes with a complete set of downloadable student notes and homework assignments. The classes are not recordings—you will be learning 'live' and interactively with a small group of other keen photography enthusiasts such as yourself.

This extensive hands-on learning and shooting experience is designed to take your studio photography to new creative heights. During this six-hour event, you will learn core lighting principles and work with professional studio lighting gear. This is a skills-transfer workshop with plenty of hands-on. You will learn everything needed to set up and use studio lighting for yourself. You will learn all about an array of light modifying tools that you can use to shape and control the light to suit your creative vision.
We'll also provide an extensive set of student notes, including buying advice and tips.
You'll use your camera to photograph professional models in multiple genres such as portraiture, beauty, fashion and athletic. During this event, you will make images that you'll be proud to have in your photography portfolio. Whether you're completely new to studio photography or have a bit of experience, this workshop is for you.
Ultimately, this workshop is about learning the skills to be able to set up and control lighting to evoke the mood and feel you want to create for your photos of people.
All you need to bring is your DSLR or mirrorless camera, lenses, and a desire to learn and take amazing photographs in a studio setting. Space is strictly limited to 8 attendees. We provide all of the lighting gear. Please note, this course does not cover how to use continuous light for video or 'small flash' (aka speedlights). While the core lighting principles are similar, we use 'big flash' aka studio strobes to create our works of art. No previous lighting experience is required!
This workshop is conducted by James Ogilvie, a professional educator, photographer and photography course creator for Henry's prior to opening cameraschool.ca where he offers multi-week core photography courses at Henry's in the downtown Toronto location.
