What’s Exciting?

There are no secrets when I’m teaching photography!
It Starts with You

You are an Artist. I will teach you what that really means. It doesn’t matter if you only take photographs occasionally, having the mindset of an artist is the first step in improving your photography.

Your Photography

I’ll teach you to think of your photography as a craft, which means making things that require a skill. This is a craft that’s easy to master, especially once I share the techniques I’ve developed and used over my 35+ year career.

Your Process

You’ll learn how to create a workflow that not only guarantees excellent results but is enjoyable, stress-free, and easy. Creating art is as much about the process as it is about the final product.


Yes, this is a scary area of photography, especially for beginners. But, you only need to learn a small library of techniques to start improving every image. You are an artist, with a set of tools. Great retouching is one of those tools.

Your Future as a Photographer

With this training, you’ll be transformed from someone who owns a camera, to an artist who has mastered their tools. This will give you the ability to create masterpieces with your camera that your friends and family adore!

Take a Closer Look

Throughout three unique, in-depth masterclasses, discover the techniques you need to create an income with your camera.

3 Photography Masterclasses

Join me behind the scenes as I share my process, developed over 35+ years as a professional advertising photographer. Broken into three masterclasses, this is the curriculum I advise for any photographer just starting out.

21 Hours of Training

This sounds like a lot. But even if you devote ten minutes a day, or a week, to learning new techniques which you go out and apply, you’ll start seeing dramatic results in your photography.

3 Steps

There are three steps you need to take. I’ve broken these down into easy-to-learn lessons. By following these steps you’ll start seeing dramatic improvements in your art in days… Not years.

Detailed List of Contents

Let’s take a deep dive into this bundle.

The Artist

12 LESSONS | 3H 40H

$197 included

The Artist, is an in-depth masterclass that will change the way you perceive and define photography. I hope to set forth my case that Art is not defined by the final product or how well that product is received, but by the act one pours into the process of creating. Be inspired to take charge of your goals and aspirations and live your dream as a photographer!

The Craft

36 LESSONS | 9H 50M

$397 included

Become an expert at the craft of photography. From understanding how optics work to working in High-Speed Sync while strobing in full sunlight. To be an Artist, you have to master your craft. I love learning techniques that help me get to my end result. Here at the Joel Grimes Academy, I want you to go beyond the basics and become an expert at the craft of photography.

The Retouch

26 LESSONS | 8h 1m

$197 included

There are a few reasons why I do all my own retouching, including 99.9% of all my commercial work. First, when building a portfolio, I can finish a shoot and immediately start processing my files and creating a finished image. No waiting and paying out the nose for a retoucher. Second, I am building a brand that is recognizable in the marketplace. My brand is everything, and having a consistent look to all my images is very important.
