About the Burwell School of Photography

Paul Burwell

The Burwell School of Photography was founded by Paul Burwell in 2007 with the goal of providing unparalleled photography education. Paul was an award winning professional photographer and contributing editor to Outdoor Photography Canada Magazine. He recognized the need for hands-on, professionally taught photography courses that were available in the Edmonton area.

Our classes consistently receive rave reviews and our school has been busier than ever. Over the years we have expanded our course offerings and instructors and we are pleased to offer our largest ever selection of classes and workshops.

Our classes and workshops are for everyone from the absolute beginner, aspiring amateur or even the seasoned professional.  We strive to provide an experiential, down to earth learning environment with world class photographer instructors.  Our instructors haven’t just taken a class on teaching photography, rather they are seasoned, nationally recognized professionals making a living from photography who have a passion for sharing their experience with their students.

Photography is ultimately about vision.  

Our instructors will teach you both the technical and creative skills to develop your own style and vision of photography.  Our classes and workshops feature a combination of classroom theory combined with a healthy dose of hands-on learning.

Sadly, the Burwell School of Photography founder, Paul Burwell, passed away in January of 2016.

In August 2016, Chris & Holly Stambaugh purchased the Burwell School of Photography, and continue the school in his name.

We encourage you to increase your knowledge of photography by taking one of our upcoming classes.
