West Georgia and Atlanta Photography Classes

Georgia School of Photography was founded by professional photographers excited to share their knowledge and experience with other people who share the same passion for photography. All of our classes and workshops are hands-on so that our students can practice what they learn during each session. We offer a variety of classes & workshops for all skill levels, from the weekend hobbyist to those looking to pursue photography as a career. Many of our photography classes are tailored to adults, but we also offer kid-friendly workshops and photo walks throughout the year.

Classes take place at various locations throughout West Georgia & Atlanta unless otherwise specified. Class size is limited, so early registration is recommended. If you have any questions about a specific class, requirements or registration, please contact us and we will be happy to help!

We are always looking for experienced professionals interested in teaching a class or workshop. If you have a class idea and want to be one of our instructors, please submit a Class Proposal form and we’ll be in touch.
