What is Creative Live?

CreativeLive broadcasts live classes from their studio taught by some of the best creative and business professionals. When I first started my business in 2010 I was searching everywhere for tutorials on lighting, business, and techniques and eventually stumbled on the Creative Live website. It was perfect. Typically a course is a few days long and they broadcast online for free. If you happen to miss the course you can purchase the entire course plus any extras included such as client questionnaires or presets that the instructor decides to share. I have noticed just about every photography instructor shares everything they do in their business. Everything from client management, shooting sessions, gear they use, how they edit, selling prints and products, and building their price sheet etc. A lot of times they will also have a mock live photo session so you can watch the photographer in action working with a client. It is the best way to learn. Also if you watch live you can ask questions in the live chat and the instructor will answer them.

You can sign up and watch live anytime but here are some of my all time favorite creative live courses you can purchase and watch right now.
