I began my photography career with a $25 film camera that I bought second-hand. I was working as an accountant in Canada and had no idea how that little camera would go on to change my life.

Since then, I've earned over $1 million in photography revenue, shot covers for magazines like Harper's Bazaar, worked with clients like Tiffany & Co, all while living in Europe and connecting with inspiring artists. Everything I've learned a long the way, from the big topics down to the nuanced details, is waiting for you inside The Academy.

The program has helped thousands of photographers around the world see their potential, create opportunities, and build businesses they love. The road is not always easy, but it's worth it. If you have a feeling there is more waiting for you out in the world, then dive in and let's build it together.
