The sidebar will contain your weekly links for PDF and bonus downloads, as well as the link to our private Facebook Group.

Course Timeline

You will notice that starting right this second you have access to all of the course content at once (you can access your course materials via the sidebar.)  We highly encourage you to spend a full week with each section of course content. Learning these skills takes time, and it is best to take it step-by-step. Remember, you do always have access to the course material, as a VIP member, so there is no rush (except for your homework deadlines except for ON DEMAND students!)

The only downloadable content from your course is the PDF content. All videos are protected because we are protecting those of you who purchased these courses. You may access the video content at anytime as a member by logging in to the course homepage

Homework + Private Facebook Group (for ON DEMAND students)

Homework is due every WEEK by MIDNIGHT.

As an ON DEMAND STUDENT, your instructor experience starts the DAY you sign up!  Your first homework assignment is due in 1 week! (Example:  If you sign up for ON DEMAND on a Thursday, then your first homework assignment is due next Thursday!)  Keep track of when your homework is due so that you can make the most of your personal feedback!

facebookUpload your homework images to the private Facebook group that you want reviewed. Specific homework assignments are posted on each week’s page. ON DEMAND students can click here to request to join the private Facebook group.

Two cautions on submitting homework:

  1. Do not submit more images than requested by your instructor. We understand that it can be hard to narrow your images down for feedback. Avoid the temptation to over-submit.
  2. Do submit your images on time. When the clock strikes midnight, homework is no longer accepted for feedback. Our instructors carve out specific times in their schedules to make sure they can give you the best, most helpful feedback possible. Some of our instructors start providing feedback at midnight the night they are due! Submit on time for guaranteed personal feedback.

Personalized Instructor Feedback (for ON DEMAND students)

Your instructor is excited to see what you have done with your new found knowledge! Video feedback on your homework will be posted via the private Facebook Group within 72 hours  following your personal homework deadline

Due to the fluid nature of the ON DEMAND service, please be sure to TAG your instructor in the Facebook group so they know your homework is posted!

Feedback is in video format. All of the instructor feedback from the week will be put into a collection of videos. We encourage you to listen to your own feedback, as well as the feedback for other students, past and present! You will learn a lot as you start to see the work from fellow photographers!

After the final homework review of the course, you may remain part of the private Facebook group as long as you remain a VIP member. We encourage you to stay connected with the other photographers you meet, as you are on this journey together!
