BetterPhoto.com's interactive online classes are a great way to learn. You can do the lessons and assignments from your own home town - anywhere in the world - and then upload the results to our professional photography instructors for their expert feedback.
Lesson/assignments (consisting of text and instructional photos) are sent out each Wednesday via email. But although there's a certain structure involved, our courses are also very flexible. All course activity takes place in a website classroom called Campus Square, so that you can ask questions, make comments, upload photos, take part in discussions with your classmates, read instructor critiques of assignment photos, etc. ... any time, at your leisure. In fact, the class is accessible 24/7, and you needn't be online at any particular times.
So, if you leave for a business trip, go on holiday, or, for whatever reason, simply can't get online for a period of time, you can easily catch up on what you missed after you return. And, if you wish, we'll send you a lesson in advance, so that you can read and even work on the assignment while you're away! Plus, instructors always accept late submissions.
