Why should I do this course when there are so many FREE resources available?

You are right, there is already a lot of free resources available on YouTube.

However, these are some questions that you need to think about -
Are you receiving a Certificate?
Is the content well-structured?
Are you sure about the information being provided?
Is it backed by some support or guidance?
Is the trainer and experienced photographer? You must check out his portfolio before you decide.
How much experience does the trainer have in teaching?
How is the feedback from the previous students?
Finding the right content is like searching for a needle in a haystack. It can be very confusing as different YouTubers might have a different opinion.

If you want to learn through trial and error, YouTube is the best, but if you want to take your skills to the next level in a minimum time, it's best to have someone help you.

Is there any local community I can join to take pictures together?

Yes, this is one big advantage of getting associated with us. You can join our local community in your city and participate in the activities. You can go out shooting together and learn from each other. Currently, we have communities in Mumbai, Pune, and Hyderabad with more than 6000 members.

Is there any online help group I can join?

Yes, of course! We have groups on Facebook and WhatsApp where you can get your questions answered.
Is there a money refund policy?
No, we do not have a money refund policy. You can join our FREE Live courses to get an idea before joining. You can also see our reviews on social media to get an idea.

Can I share the course with multiple people?

This course is only for ONE person. Only the purchaser can participate in the Q and A sessions which are very important for your progress. Else it becomes like another online course.

However, you can gift a course to someone. We also have an Affiliate program and you can earn up to 50% commission for the sale. You can actually recover the cost of the course by referring to two persons. Please get in touch if you want to become an affiliate.

For the Lightroom Classic Editing Course - You need a computer with the software installed.
