How do I Improve My Photography - Education
I've already covered the topic of How do I Improve My Photography on two previous occasions (Photo Groups and Working with Models). Today I wanted to discuss education.
I have been a member of the Intermountain Professional Photographers Association (IPPA) for about 5 years. I joined up because I realized I couldn't "do it alone". I had many things to learn, from posing, to lighting, to marketing, to business practices and more. They IPPA meets several times a year (generally once per quarter with one annual convention in there). There have been many classes taught by photographers from around the country and around the world as well as local photographers.
Often I would find myself buying some cool toys from visiting photographers, or some other educational material (books, DVDs, etc).
But one of the things I picked up along the way and have never regretted is my subscription to PhotoVision. They put together a series of DVDs that are produced approximately once every 2 months featuring various photographers teaching many of the topics I needed to learn.
While I've paid as much as $200 for one instructional DVD ... this amazing collection of 6 DVDs is regularly just $149 and right now is being discounted all the way down to just $39. That's a lot of "learning" at an unbeatable price.
Now, I generally don't like pitching other people's goods on this blog, but this is a good deal. So this is what you do:
Click here to go to the PhotoVision site and check out the various photographers that will be featured on this year's DVDs (from Julie Klaasmeyer to Travis Gugelman to Lori Nordstrom and more). Check out the sample videos even.
And then, when you get to the check out ... be sure to enter PVFAN as the promo code to get the $149 DVD collection for just $39.
I think you'll enjoy them as much as I do. I hope you'll write back and let me know.
