Client and Instructor Expectations 

 
  • At McKay Photography Academy we have crafted our team and tours over many years. We continue to grow and learn ourselves. We also work to create the best possible environment for our clients we feel we can offer. 

 

  • In order for our team and our clients to get the most out of every photographic tour , we present to you the MPA Instructor Client Creed. 
 
  • At MPA , we are a team! We are friends, individual business owners, and professional photographers with thousands of hours each as our background.  Individually, and as a team, we continue the pursuit of our own education to always become better as photographers and educators. 
 
  • We consider our relationships with our clients as much more than just client/instructor relationships. We consider them a partnership where we all bring something to the table to help each other grow and learn and see the beautiful world and all that is in it. Through this, we also hope to bring change and create a better place then where we started. MPA is MUCH more than just photographic educational tours. It is life experiences! 
 
  • We work to help each person on a photography tour to the best of our abilities with all we have to offer. 
 
  • As instructors , we are each unique individuals within the team and carry various abilities and tools within our education “tool box”.  
 
  • We cherish that we each have a different way we present the way in which teach. This allows for our clients to have various thought processes in which to learn. We are not here to tell you “our” way, but to hell you learn and start understanding what works best for you as an individual! To help you find “your” way. 
 
  • We cannot nor should we be expected to have every answer to every system or lens on the market.  However, we will do all we can to find the answer for our clients and seek help from each other in doing so. 
 
  • We do not know it all nor do we or others enjoy when people like to be “know it alls”. 
 
  • Clients should expect that all MPA instructors will do their very best to help you achieve top notch photography education . We will pour ourselves into you. We do not take that lightly and we ask you do the same. 
 
  • We are here to serve but not be your servants. We respect our clients and ask that we are respected. The instructor/client relationship should be one of partnership! 
 
  • We will not tolerate aggressive behavior (vocally or physically) towards us , other clients, or those we partner with. 
 
  • To give the best educational experience, we want to work with each client individually and in a group setting. We will have a small client to instructor ratio on every tour in order to give you what we believe  to be the best photographic educational experience available. 
 
  • We understand that we have various people of all types of photographic abilities and personalities on our tours. We are here for everyone.  
 
  • Clients should expect that all tours are a “two way” street where we will ask questions of our clients, but our clients must ask questions of us as we cannot “read” minds. 
 
  • As a partnership , we all must be flexible on a tour. It must be understood that everyday will present unexpected situations and occurrences.  Flexibility and a great attitude are a necessity of both the MPA instruction team as well as clients on a tour. This allows for a better educational and overall environment for all in a tour.
