I stayed couple hours and some “shows” are very interesting, i.e., Dan Milnor’s “The Documentary Portrait” definitely stands by its own.

Thanks to Dan and the host creativeLIVE.


I just looked at their main page. The “rebroadcasts” don’t start from the beginning and their is too much jibber jabber in their videos, not enough substance. Pure marketing.

I tend to agree here. I did watch several hours recently as they broadcast live, but I can only watch it in the background doing something useful in the meantime (like editing photos), because there is just too much waffling going on. It feels like they need to justify the cost of those videos once they are up for sale for watching later.

I’d actually be happy to pay some money for the information (not nearly as much as they charge for it though), but only if they distilled it down to the interesting 10%. After all, this is what photo clients pay there photographers for as well. You never deliver 3000 photos of a wedding, you find the interesting parts and present them in a digestible way.

Wait… didn’t they get the memo? I thought the iPhone killed any need for pro photo workshops. And the poor dour togs left don’t have time for classes because they’re too busy whining about the state of our industry.

Kudos to creativeLIVE for setting the bar high for togs and not getting dragged down by all the naysayers.

Bravo creativeLIVE!
