Free One Year Gift Membership of the Photographer Academy
It’s brilliant when I get to gift my photographer friends and blog readers something really useful. A key ingredient of our success either in business or as an artist usually lies with a combination of skill building and practice. But gaining all important training can sometimes be tough. After all, most of us have busy schedules and limited budgets. We also have different learning needs and objectives. This is why multi award winning photographer Mark Cleghorn set up the Photographer Academy several years ago. Here in the UK Mark is pretty much a household name in photography terms – he’s one of our nation’s leading trainers and has been a successful portrait and commercial photographer for decades. The Academy offers a variety of training methods, from access to face-to-face workshops and seminars, to the online bite sized training videos which the Academy has become well known for. All sorts of subjects are covered, from wedding photography and portraiture, through to landscapes, postproduction, and wildlife. About the Photographer Academy
I’m delighted to tell you that Mark has invited me to offer you a one-year free membership to the Photographer Academy Hit the Membership Options/Subscribe Now button and use the code XFREE when you sign up. Don’t worry, you won’t be asked to enter your credit card details or anything like that. You don’t have to be based here in the UK either. Nor do you have to be a professional photographer – if you’re a beginner or casual hobbyist you’ll find plenty of helpful content. But you need to be quick, the offer expires on 1 January 2016. Your gift membership will expire in 365 days.
And no, there isn’t anything in it for me – we just feel like spreading the love. The industry has been erratic in recent years and the massive influx of untrained newcomers setting themselves up in business has put a real downer on how professional photographers are perceived by the public. Training is key to building a solid foundation whether you’re a keen hobbyist or an aspiring pro. If training sounds a bit daunting to you, then online learning can be a great way to get you going. And if you’re based within shouting distance of West Sussex and fancy something more intensive, I offer one-to-one training in a variety of photography subjects (including postproduction) – take a look at our Workshops page if you want to find out more. You’ll also find plenty of hints and tips here on my Blog (under the For Photographers section).
