About This Class

Amy Shutt has over a decade of formal photography experience.  She currently specializes in nature, animal, and commercial photography in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. A published photographer, Amy also teaches various photography classes and workshops throughout the United States and beyond. 

When Amy is not shooting in the studio, her favorite things to photograph are flora, fauna, landscapes, and all things nature. She especially loves the swamps of Louisiana, the coast and deserts of California, and the savannas of East Africa.

Amy's interest in photography began at an early age. She loved Polaroid and disc cameras and received her first 35 mm camera, a Minolta SR-T 101, when she was 11 years old. 



She went on to major in photography in college, but realized after a year that shooting for a grade was killing her passion. So, she switched her major to Philosophy, minored in Art History, and became a professional photographer.

In 2014 Amy partnered with the world-renowned Audubon Nature Institute in New Orleans, LA, to develop and teach Basic, Advanced, and Specialized Photography Classes that focus on animal photography as well as conservation and animal education.

She has gone on to lead photography classes at botanical gardens, nature institutes, natural science museums, and wildlife rehabilitation centers not only in Louisiana but also in Colorado, Texas, California, and Arizona. She is currently broadening her photography workshops to include photography tours in Africa and India.

Amy does a great job of explaining the essentials of basic photography as well as providing real life examples for this class! The video lessons are short and concise yet provide ample information and she provides excellent downloadable information. Even those interesting in learning basic photography would benefit from this class.

With over a decade of experience, Amy Shutt Photography specializes in pet, food, commercial and editorial photography in Baton Rouge, La and beyond. 

When I am not shooting in the studio my favorite things to photograph are flora, fauna, landscapes, and all things nature. I especially love the swamps of Louisiana and the coast and deserts of California.

I teach DSLR photography classes and hold various photography workshops throughout the seasons.  Teaching is definitely a passion for me, just as much as photography is. 

I am a regular contributing photographer to 225 Magazine. I am an active member of PPA, ASMP, and HeartsSpeak.
