About This Class

Join Toronto-based cityscape photographer Jamal Burger (aka @jayscale) for a 20-minute class as he walks us through his process of shooting three specific compositions: Symmetry, the Lookup, and the Stride-By.

You'll learn Jamal's techniques for composing your shot, taking advantage of natural light, capturing interesting characters juxtaposed with beautiful architecture, and overall just having fun pushing your photo skills no matter what level of experience you have.

Whether you're a complete beginner, a seasoned shooter or an Instagram enthusiast, Jamal's process will inspire you to take your cityscapes to the next level.

I enjoy taking on projects relevant to what I believe in and embody. 

Huge on sports, lifestyle and shooting in the city. I am a former Kinesiology student from the University of Toronto, and a long-time sneaker enthusiast.  

I enjoy taking on projects with brands corporate, mid-level and personal. With every project, I always try to take something conventional and add a twist to make it stand out for the brand, as well as me staying true to my vision.

Passion is important to me. I would love for you to share yours.
