Ocean Drive


South Beach is one of the most beautiful and most cultured sections of Florida.  From world-famous ballet to top-notch restaurants to exciting shopping strips, South Beach has it all.  And of course, the greatest attractions to South Beach are the cool waters and sandy shores and the amazing art deco architecture.  Join your Digital Photo Academy instructor for a photographic stroll across the beach and along Ocean Drive.

South Beach is a wonderful place to shoot because it provides you with a variety of subjects and styles of photography.  Snap photos of local teens playing volleyball for some killer action shots, capture the tide as it dances along the shore for some nature photos, and reveal the brightly colored art deco architecture.  Take portraits of your new friends, shoot in macro to expose the small details of a seashell, and use a wide-angle lens to set a hotel in your frame.

Photographing alongside your DPA Instructor, you will learn new techniques and lessons in composition, and then be able to experiment with them out in the field under the guidance of a professional.  Use leading lines to show the beach fade into the distance, manipulate your shutter speed to blur or still the motion of a soaring volleyball, and change your angle when shooting different styles of architecture to find an interesting way to display size and shape.

We will meet outside of News Cafe located at 800 Ocean Drive, Miami, FL 33139.  Please bring your DSLR or another type of digital camera that you use, a fully-charged battery, and the equipment that you can carry.  You should dress for the weather, wear comfortable shoes, and carry a bottle of water.

Call Digital Photo Academy at 1 877 372 2231. Lots of people seem to hang up if our welcome recording comes on instead of a live voice, but we promise to return your message within a day or two if you leave one with your name and number.  It would be even better if you included your e mail address as well as the date and city of the class you are considering.  If leaving a voice mail message is not your thing, please email us at or
