A Curated Collection of The Best Photography Courses on Creative Live
It is estimated that the e-learning industry is now worth an astounding $100 billion dollars, and much of this value comes from platforms like Lynda, Coursera, and Udemy that offer users the ability to learn from experts and thought leaders in a variety of fields directly from the comfort of their computer. Inspired by a past post from the Phottix blog archives, we decided to take a look at the photography courses offered on one such platform, Creative Live, and break down the best ones in across a few of Creative Live’s many categories.
The online content available for purchase on Creative Live’s website is a recording of a workshop that has been filmed at Creative Live’s studio in Seattle, Washington. Most workshops are three days long, with each day containing about 4 hours of material, though this varies from course to course. This is worth noting, as most e-learning platforms measure content amounts in hours, not days.

If you have already identified your niche and it happens to be as a wedding photographer, then you should consider this course on the business of photography. It focuses primarily on wedding photography and thus isn’t as broadly applicable as Business for Photographers, but it is well-reviewed.
