CreativeLIVE’s six day long live streaming photography instruction offer will provide entirely free training that promises to cover a wide range of subjects of interest to both beginning and experienced photographers alike.
CreativeLIVE was first launched in 2010 by acclaimed photographer Chase Jarvis and Craig Swanson as a platform for enabling experienced and pro photographers of all kinds to instruct viewers on specific skills related to photography in multi-day seminars via live, streaming video. The CreativeLIVE site incorporates a very interesting model — viewing the live, online streaming seminars is entirely free of charge, with viewers able to submit questions and interact with one another. There is a fee only for viewing or downloading archived recordings of past seminars. Since its inception, CreativeLIVE has had over a million attendees and its various instructors have received “millions” so far in payment from people paying the small fee to view past seminars.
Last February CreativeLive ran PhotoshopWEEK, which included instructors such as Dave Cross, Lesa Snider, Jack Davis and Ben Wilmore. Over 150,000 participants from more than 170 countries tuned in for seminars that included titles such as “Photoshop’s Best-Kept Secrets”, “Editing Habits to Break”, “Mastering Blending Modes”, and “Getting Started with Actions”. Provided at no cost during the live event, each of those seminars are now fully available for a small fee. Earlier this month CreativeLIVE hosted a no-cost, five-day Adobe Creative Cloud Design Week, with 11 different instructors including those mentioned above along with Jay Nelson and Jeff Foster, each focusing on the core CC applications. Subject included things such as “InDesign Basics – Using Photoshop and InDesign”, “Master Illustrator’s Patterns”, “Dreamweaver vs Muse”, and “Template-based Imaging in Photoshop.”
Coming up next for CreativeLive is the free Photo Week, taking place from September 16th through the 21st. This event will involve over 30 different instructors across three live channels dedicated to commercial, outdoor and wedding photography, with special content for beginning photographers. Courses include topics such as as “Commercial Portrait Lighting”, “Fine Art Photography” and “Lomography & iPhoneography.”
More information and free registration is available on the creativeLIVE site.
