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.  It's not your typical online learning experience. Our teachers are extremely hands on and interact with you daily. We try to make your online learning experience as close to an in-person learning experince as possible.

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.
