Online Photography Courses


Things have really changed. It used to be to learn professional photography you had to jump on a plane and attend a multi day workshop given by a great photographer. And that's still the best way to learn.

But times have changed and now there are tons of "How To" photography videos online and on YouTube. Problem is that for the most part they're amateurish, full of misinformation and a waste of time.

I have purchased about 25 profession photography courses from Creative Live, I was only disappointed by one and they refunded my money. I'm impressed that they only show top rated photographers and the courses are all professionally done.  If you're interested in a course they let you watch a free lesson or two before you decide if you want to buy it. They always seem to have a sale. 

They also have some free online classes. Personally I have only found a couple of the free ones really good, most of the free ones were pretty...well you know...

Use this link to check out Creative Live, This link includes a code that will save you US$15 off the first course you buy with a value of US$25 or more.

Photographers/business people This is a great little device that lets you accept credit cards anywhere. We use it at the park or when doing location/home portraits.
