Q. What is covered in the program?
A. We cover most everything you would learn at an expensive photography school, from the proper way to hold a camera on up, in less time and from the comfort of home. Our course is equally balanced for film or digital camera shooters -- the similarities and differences are well defined. We incorporate reading material, in simple language, with hands on training that really works!
Q. How do I Register?
A. Use the Registration link at left.
Q. When does the course begin?
A. After you register, simply click on Start Here above. You can start right away.
Q. What if I forget my password?
A. Just email us, we will find your old one or issue you a new one.
Q. What if I need more than 6 months to finish the course?
A. If you need more time than that, there is a small reinstatement fee.
Q. Can I share my username and password with friends?
A. No. We check the logs of people visiting the site, and will delete any password that we suspect is being abused. But please do let your friends know about the program so they can sign up too.
Q. Do you cover darkroom techniques?
A. We added a darkroom section for those who have access to one. Darkroom work is not required to finish the program.
Q. Do I get a diploma or certificate on completion?
A. At the end of the program is a beautiful 8x10 diploma from MLK Studios you can download and print. Suitable for framing.
Q. Is the school accredited?
A. No, and neither are other photography courses you will find online. In most countries you don't need a degree to be a professional photographer, and a very small percentage of working professionals have one (they have a lot of experience instead). But you do need a good portfolio to earn a living as a photographer, which you will get from the training.
Q. Why do you charge so little for the program?
A. We should be charging far more for the level of training included here. But, we want everyone to enjoy taking great pictures and are able to teach hundreds of students around the world at this low rate.
Q. Can I get a refund?
A. Refunds, for any reason, are given in the first ten days. My course is 100% risk free.
