Connection. Intention. Community.
The mission of Cole’s Classroom is to help everyone, regardless of skill level or budget, to become a better photographer. The truth is, getting into photography can be intimidating (we’ve all been there…when the stress of a new path seems to outweigh the benefit)! But we also know what’s on the other side of learning photography; freedom to do what you love, building relationships with people in your community, and spreading kindness through imagery.
Cole’s Classroom offers inspirational and practical, no-fuss training to photographers around the world
(with a heck of a lot of fun mixed in)!
We were tired of searching for a photography
community that felt like home. So we made one.
Bottle your love for photography, and give it away.
As a team, we’ve learned that taking your love for photography, morphing that love into pictures and THEN giving that love away is where it gets good.
Photography is a mirror.
“Don’t try to change the world, find something that you love and do it everyday, do that for the rest of your life, eventually the world will change.”
What makes us Cole’s Classroom different, you ask?
We create and foster a supportive, inspirational, and motivational community of aspiring and up-and-coming photographers who can get answers to their questions – without any fear of ridicule or harsh judgment from others!
We aim to break down confusing photography concepts and techniques into simple and easy to understand lessons that any photographer can grasp. We want you to see real improvements right away so you stay motivated and eager to keep mastering your camera.
Cole’s Classroom knows that being a brand new photographer it can be overwhelming, frustrating and many consider giving up thinking they aren’t good enough.
YOU ARE GOOD ENOUGH!
(Yes, we are yelling at you… in the most loving way, of course!)
It WILL get better when you have the right support to keep cheering you on. That’s where we can help.
At Cole’s Classroom, you have the training, the tools, and the support you need
(and we’ll provide you with a few good laughs, too).

We KNOW what is possible for you. We just want you to see it, too. You are a freakin’ photography ninja and Cole’s Classroom will give you alllll the superpowers.
Education that doesn’t require a fancy degree!
Cole founded Cole’s Classroom back in 2013 when he was unable to find education that helped regular people learn the basics of photography! That has since snowballed into connecting over 120,000 photographers and creating education that is easy to understand and digestible on-the-go!
The centerpiece of the Cole’s Classroom experience is an extensive collection of online photography courses created by real, boots-on-the-ground photographers just like you. These courses are divided into modules to make them easier to complete in stages, and run anywhere from 13 minutes to 5 hours. (We promise our courses are *almost* as good as Netflix!)
