Last year I was determined to grow as an artist in new directions- I was able to upgrade my computer and imaging gear, pay for the Adobe Creative Cloud and use all their programs beyond the photographic ones, and I traveled outside of my normal LA/ Seattle/ Arizona loop.
With new directions come new learning curves, and the tutorial site that has helped me the most by far is Skillshare. I used it to get my business in order, learn Adobe Illustrator and After Effects and InDesign, learned graphic design of posters, and more.
Beyond that, I’ve been able to bring the stuff I teach locally in the Phoenix Metro to a worldwide audience. Currently my classes involve photography (Mixed Media Image Transfer + Capturing the Great Outdoors + Speed Up Your Workflow In Lightroom) , videography (Get Surreal With Adobe Premiere), sculpture (Create A Caricature in Clay Without A Studio), and graphic design (Build Your Creative Cloud Library With Adobe Capture). I’m prepping classes on Creative Photographic Portraiture, Voice Editing for Adobe Premiere and Audition, and Making Motion Comics, all of which will be up before the summer ends.
In the meantime, anyone out there who wants to try out Skillshare, here’s a lovely referral code for a 3 month trial for .99!
