While there are many photography schools available along with programs presented by the photography organizations, it is always better to get one on one training to better your photographic skills.
Studying with seasoned professionals at a photography workshop is usually the best way to become a better photographer in the shortest amount of time possible. while more expensive, I learned early on that studying with the best photographers in the country made me a better image maker, better at business and set my photography career on the fast track to success. I learned that a photography workshop was the best money that I could invest.
There is a trend in the country today to get training, especially for photography, from online forums and blogs instead of photography schools and workshops. I can’t say this for ALL of these online resources, but for MOST of them, you get exactly what you pay for.
Wading through thousands of opinions from everyone takes time and the quality of the information is usually poor at best. Many of the members and owners of these forums and the writers of the blogs haven’t any credentials, many aren’t really professionals and many have failing businesses. Not a place to get the training needed to make it in today’s very competitive photographic market. You need top-notch training, because to survive in business today, you must differentiate yourself from the competition to succeed.
While there are still several quality photography schools available, you still don’t get the one on one training that will accelerate your learning curve. A photography workshop is still the No. 1 source to learn the craft of photography.
