Learn to produce images with impact, and images that people will love--a true measure of a successful photo, regardless of whether you create images for profit or pleasure. The Photography part of this course taught by legendary photographers Jerry Avienaim and Gary Bernstein, presents easily-learned principles of lighting, posing, and composition that result in powerful "people pictures". It gives every photographer basic tools from which to grow, experiment and create.

How to Build a Career in Photography is a master class exploring the tools, equipment, marketing and logistics needed to create revenue from your photographs.

No more guessing about the best way to photograph people; this course will instill techniques that are the very essence of "people photography". Learn to analyze faces along with the technical, compositional and creative elements required to truly wow the subject with the results of the photography session.

5 Lessons You'll Learn

  1. The psychology of working with people (which is critical regardless of whether you are making an image with the most expensive equipment or shooting it on your cell phone).
  2. How to select and present your work to portrait clients, ad agencies and commercial clients.
  3. Strategies for pricing your work and securing clients.
  4. When to use natural light; when to use artificial light (and the relationship between the two).
  5. Keys to composition and contrast control.

Every photographer (certainly every professional photographer) brings a different vantage to his or her art and its application. In this case Avenaim and Bernstein designed this short yet abundantly detailed course to deliver specific critical techniques that not only please the subject of the photograph, but also the commercial client. Their frank approach is based on years of working professionally in the world's toughest, most competitive markets.



This course will help you prepare for the Adobe Certified Expert in Photoshop CC Exam. Otherwise known as ACE, this exam is the highest official certification you can get, proving your skills in Photoshop and helping to further your career in the creative industry.

The ACE exam is made up of 10 main topics, which are all covered in great detail. Practice tests are also available for download, to help you to prepare for the real exam and summarize what you have learned.

It is recommended that you spend time practicing your new Photoshop skills, so to prepare thoroughly you should expect to take 1-2 weeks to finish this course, depending on your Photoshop skill level. Currently this is the only online course available which offers a complete preparation guide for the Photoshop CC Expert Exam.
