Our mission is simple: we are a photography education community with industry leading teachers focused on cutting out the nonsense and bringing meaningful insight to your art and your business. 

We provide a simple and easy to navigate online learning space where the students can connect directly with teachers in a meaningful way.  A class at Illuminate will both inspire and help demystify topics by providing practical, technical information that will help propel your work forward. 

Illuminate shines a bright light on what matters to teachers and students most: relevant, make-sense course material and the push to make you a better YOU.
