In-depth online education, workshops and mentoring with Russ Jackson

Online Workshops

Learn at your own pace and enjoy lifetime access to my online workshops and tutorials. These are designed to guide both newcomers and experienced portrait photographers through the intricacies of posing, lighting and post production techniques.

In-Person Workshops

Learn in a relaxed and collaborative environment. This is your chance to pick my brain as well as learn by physically watching me and then replicating the poses with me by your side. With all in-person workshops you will photograph live models and the workshop includes lighting , posing and editing techniques.

Online Consultations

Online consultations cater to your specific needs no matter where you are in your photographic journey. You can choose to focus on one specific topic (recommended) or use the time to have a general discussion about the hurdles you face in your business.

Why I Created the Russ Jackson Academy

Over the years I have had the pleasure of educating hundreds of super-talented photographers from around the world.  Now is the time to consolidate my experience and training in one place. My aim is to share my knowledge and help photographers who wish to niche down and specialise in newborn and maternity photography as well as children's fine art portraiture.

Take your photography to the next level, invest in yourself and your business by learning the techniques I have learned to capture and create exceptional images that you and your clients will love.
