Today, sharing images is a necessity. Whether it is to sell things, or to remember events, or to share your image on LinkedIn, we need professional images if we are to stand out. Amateur snapshots will no longer do it.

There are many things to learn. There’s technical knowledge: without knowing your camera and the principles of photography, you will not get far. Then composition, the rules of which haven’t changed since the 17th century. And then there’s the computer knowledge you need for the “post-work”. The good news: you can learn all this. “It’s just technique"!

You need a great teacher. One who thoroughly understands technology and photography, and who knows how to teach. Michael can help! As an engineer, he understands the technology, and as an educator, he knows how to convey it in an understandable way. His courses, supported by his range of e-books, guarantee that you will learn.

It is rare to find an endeavour that is both useful and fun, but photography is just such an endeavour. You will get noticeably better with every lesson, and what’s more: you will enjoy the learning process. Michael's unique "Dutch Masters" teaching methodology will help you unlock your creativity.

Michael has taught his unique courses and seminars in Toronto, Las Vegas, Amsterdam, Phoenix, Timmins, Niagara, London, and many other places, as well as online as far away as Sydney, Australia.

Michael Willems Photo

Michael's mission is to enable you to be a great photographer, and to print your photos, use them on social media, and create or buy wall art to enrich your life.

We live in a visual world. Ever since cave art, we have been trying to use visual imagery to communicate events, objects, even feelings. It is the way to convey a complex message in one go. “A picture paints a thousand words”, they say, and with good reason.



Our Differences

You will learn photography in person—in small groups (no more than 4–10 students) or in private.

You get an experienced teacher, not a shop assistant. A teacher who is also a professional photographer.

We will not try to sell you cameras–you get truly independent advice.

Join the thousands of satisfied students who can now call themselves professional photographers! Come into the store or contact Michael today for more information, course schedules, etc.
