Learn How to Create Images of a Lifetime™


Photographers’ Education & Resource Center (PERC Photography School) offers award winning digital photo, video and software training. We teach How and Why digital cameras work.  As a result, you can learn the Art, Science and Business of Digital Photography™ from us.

PERC is the only photography school with full time photo and video studios! Since we have studios on both US coasts, we practice what we teach. 

Our hands-on studio work and editing is especially relevant because it provides us with invaluable experience that we pass along. It makes us knowledgeable about the latest gear, techniques and customer insights. Consequently, we can train you like no other photography school or camera store (local or online) can.

We provide the widest variety of Professional Photography Certification programs in the world.  Since these are online as well as classroom based, we have students and graduates across the US and the world.

We provide Mentoring and Private Tutoring services, classroom, online and field workshop training covering all skill levels on 60+ topics.

Our Private Tutoring service for amateurs is our most popular offering. Students learn one-on-one with a knowledgeable instructor in a friendly, self-paced environment. Compared to classes, students are not slowed down by questions from others or held back by those who do not grasp the material quickly.

Similarly, the Mentoring program for professional photographers of all skill levels is also quite popular. Because of our experience, pros ask us to help them market, sell,  negotiate, and  manage their business. We also help with branding, market expansion, adding services, and increasing fees.

Finally, we also teach DSLR videography using external microphones, lighting, external audio recorders, sliders and handheld stabilizing systems.
