City Academy Photography Courses


Our Tutor has done an excellent job with us. They made sure we understood the basic principles of how to control exposure in our cameras and let us explore and put the skills into practice. They were also strongly encouraging towards leveraging our creativity and the results could be appreciated in the last session when all the students presented their photographs. The course overall strongly exceeded my expectations.
