    Love love LOVE Shaw Academy! I took the portrait photography Class and I loved every minute of it! I learned more in the first few lessons of this online course than I did during my University's portrait photography class. I am now proud to say I am a lifetime member of Shaw Academy and I am loving my new classes (Ultimate portrait photography and Nutrition) and I am super excited to take more in the future! Great classes! Wonderful teachers! I highly recommend!
