Learn How to Grow Your YouTube Channel

We know: you’re a photographer, not a youtuber! But your gear and knack for content creation put you at an optimal position to add YouTube content into your output rotation.  From “day in the life” videos of what you do at shoots, to scenic vlogs (where you get to stay completely behind the camera), starting to post on YouTube can put you in the position to earn thousands of dollars each month through ad revenue.

This comprehensive YouTube course, taught by YouTube Influencers and experts, is designed to help you build your audience and brand on the world’s second-largest search engine. You’ll learn how to create engaging, shareable videos that are optimized for YouTube SEO, increasing your video views and channel subscribers. Additionally, you’ll explore how to monetize your channel through ads and promotions.

Get Your Diploma in Digital Photography

If your photography niche points you toward content creator roles or product photography job listings, boosting your resume with photography certifications can help you stand out against other applicants.  While photography certifications might not have the best reputation amongst the photography community itself, they’re undeniably eye catching to employers viewing your application through a more corporate lens.

Enter: the diploma in digital photography from Alison.  This course covers the history of photography and the impact of influential photographers, the relationship between focal length, lens diameter and ‘f-stops,’ and the relationship between shutter, aperture and ISO. Most importantly, however, it sends you off with an accredited CPD certification that you can display on your resume and LinkedIn profile.

How to License Your Photography

Now, this “course” isn’t technically a course – it’s a blog post; but we found it far too valuable to leave off the list! Licensing your photos lets you outline exactly how clients can use your photographs, how much they will pay to use your photographs, and how long they can use them for. It’s a way to ensure you get fairly paid for your work; do it right, and you can maximize the profits you see for every image. And it doesn’t hurt that a lot of this income will happen passively!

Many photographers describe photo licensing as the practice that turned around the success of their professional photography endeavors. See what it can do for you!
