Starting on Wednesday at 12pm Eastern, and continuing on Thursday and Friday, there will be a 3-day class live-streaming for FREE for everyone to watch at CreativeLIVE by the one and only Joe McNally, “Lighting, Logistics, and Strategies for a Life in Photography”. Look under “Class Materials” for the topics that will be covered. The stream will take place 12pm to 7pm eastern during each day.
CreativeLIVE uses a different model when it comes to online classes. Each class streams live online as it is recorded (in other words, classes are recorded live) and everyone can watch it without paying. After the original live stream is over, then you have to pay to watch or rewatch it. So if you have a flexible schedule and fast-enough internet access you can watch a LOT of content for free.
For more details, check CreativeLive’s Free On-Air Classes page. Other upcoming classes include Lindsay Adler, Jeremy Cowart, Ben Willmore, and more.
