Meet your Instructor

Hey there, I'm Sophy! I'm the owner and founder of Sophy Cee Photography, Studio Arc and The Academy.


Here's my story.


Teaching isn't just a chapter of my story—it's the heartbeat that fuels every aspect of The Academy.

After 14 years of guiding minds from grade 1 through to adulthood, I've discovered that my passion for helping others is unwavering, no matter what path I tread.

From the very first click of the shutter in 2010, photography became more than just a hobby; it became my voice. Through the lens, I found a way to translate emotions, stories, and beauty into visual narratives that resonate with the soul.


But my journey wasn't just about capturing moments; it was about the deep-seated desire to impart knowledge, ignite creativity, and watch others thrive.

Amidst the pursuit of this passion, two burnouts served as poignant reminders of the importance of balance and self-care. As I transitioned from teaching to photography, the urge to assist fellow photographers in navigating the business side of their art grew stronger. This is how Sophy Cee Coaching came to life


This transformative experience not only breathed life into their endeavors but also rekindled my teaching spirit.

And so, The Academy was born—a space where creativity finds its wings, and education is fueled by innovation. I  saw a void in the realm of non-traditional photography education in the West Island, and with that realization, our commitment to offering a unique and inspiring haven for learning took shape.


With every click, every frame, and every shared insight, I'm here to cultivate your journey, transforming aspirations into realities. Join me, as we redefine the boundaries of education and creativity, one image at a time.

Hope to see you at The Academy. Can't wait to "click" with you!
